First of all, thanks to those who are dedicated to the development of this fantastic program, which ,definitely without any doubt has simplified our life in flight and added safety !!!
Given the latest updates and customizations of the latest version and the possibility of using more and more powerful android devices, Let me propose 2 changes that I consider ESSENTIAL:

1. To give the possibility to have, as label, the parameter’s name close to each OVERLAY. Not flying every day it is difficult to remember the settings we have decided to put on the screen. As an example, it would be unsafe to mistake the MacCready and the Equivalent MacCready values (I personally had this experience, almost finished in an outlanding).

2. At least for the Android devices, I see the potential to have: Pictures associated to Airports, Landeables and so on (as in the .cupx format); Audio, letting Android to read the Airports/Landeable’s Notes.

This changes would bring LK8000 to the “next level” and open up multiple possibilities to better configure outlanding safety.

This make evident that Labels are not sufficient to avoid ALL mistakes, but they could help in many, many cases.

Point 1 :the focus of the speech is that if there are 50 customization possibilities, a label must be made, otherwise, they are useless!

Point 2: integrate photos and audio in LK8000 it's a real step on for safety !
