Vector large font poll

We've gotten some requests for larger fonts for the Vector's numeric readouts. The experimental software below provides larger fonts. Need your feedback on this.

To try it out, install the software linked to below, then manually update your Vector firmware (unless you are prompted to do so). Then, set up readouts only on the first and 3rd rows, in columns 1, 2 and 3, as shown in the image below. Check out the fonts on your display and let us know your thoughts.

http://www.eagletreesystems.com/Late...ont-test-1.exe

NOTE: DO NOT FLY with this software/firmware version! Once you have checked out the fonts via your goggles or whatever, install either our release or beta software from here and manually update your Vector firmware.

Also, note that there are bugs in the display right now, so please only focus on the font size.

I agree...

Maybe a middle of the road step up...
Even in the Attitudes it is a little over kill.

If only the items that are over sized now stay large it would be ok, but it would really crowd the screen if all element where that size.

Personally, I would like all the elements increase in size, so a more modest jump may be needed.

A little to big mabe 2 thirds this size would be it. but thes are clear but crouded in there boxes so if there where only 3 places across the top and botom instead of 5 they would work.
would the idear of the versions of font choice ie. two firmwares one for large and one for standard be possible.
I use more than one screen to get all the elements I use ,as there is to much for one for me.
Thanks for a great product which will get better and better.

Actually looking again today, I think the new size it about right. Wish I could change my vote in the poll
