    Default Overview on roads as well as motorways

    If there is no turning in a mile or two ahead, Nextgen switches to overview when I'm on a motorway. That's good.

    What I want it to do is to do the same when I'm on a road. I can't find any menu setting to enable this.

    Is there a command I can put into sys.txt to make this happen?

    Thank you very much. I'm using Basarsoft and your UX has done exactly what I wanted.

    Oh dear. There is a snag. Although this UX works perfectly when it is switched on, it needs to be switched on every time I start NextGen. The "Overview Enabled" option switches itself off each time I exit the program. Other settings seem to get saved OK, but not this one.

    There is a reason why the original code ("Automatic Overview" toggle) has it not to be persistent. Not too many people like the idea of having bird-eye view all the time. My hack to provide bird-eye view option for highway or not ("Automatic Overview for Highway Only" toggle) doesn't change existing functionality. It's not hard to add persistent to setting, but I can't do it until next week.

    Strangely, today, the setting does seem to be persistent!

    [Later] Sometimes it stays on,sometimes it doesn't.

    What would seem ideal to me is to have a button that will toggle automatic overview, with the last state chosen being persistent. But it is good as it is. Thank you very much.
