I like many of the proposals going around.
Much of this needs to be configurable.
Status bar on/off, console on/off. Console contents, status bar contents, top bar contents, toolbar contents.
Could possibly eliminate the chart bar, as well. Toolbar buttons for chart types. They could gray out if none available for that area. Drop down for resolution.
But if you keep the chart bar, they have some real estate not being used. Could show chart name in the box. I'd like the bold bar around the active chart to be neon green or yellow instead of black. And the chart outlines need to be the same color as the chart blocks.
And, Dave, I know you are very partial to not allow much overzoom, but if I am following a GPS track from a previous trip, I may need to zoom right in to where 100-200ft fills the screen
. Putting hash lines on the screen
for overzoom works for me. I'd like almost unlimited zoom capabilities.
I'd like to be able to choose my cm93 resolution like I can on the other chart types. Myself, there are times I want the detailed chart to show at a larger zoom level. I'd also like the chart outlines for cm93 to show at a higher zoom level. Maybe that needs to be configurable, as well.
Here's what my screen looks like with all the chart outlines. I can't see where the CM93 coverage is, though. There again, it might should be configurable for all chart types.

EDIT: And configurable North up, chart up, course up, heading up.
EDIT2: And multiple chart windows. Different charts
or different zoom levels and different orientations. Selections would apply to window with focus.
