Barry, I differ from you.

Sorry but I honestly tried to imagine using that.  I couldn't.
It was a nightmare of information, most of which was unneeded.

"Ease of use" is what I want and what I get with the Band Map, and it costs
me ZERO.

I have to add a huge screen in addition to the one I already have, just to
see all the call signs laid out horizontally.  Granted, the additional
feature is, I can see where there is no activity.
Not a huge benefit to me, though I see some benefit.
The useful information can be presented in a much more useful manor with
frequency on the vertical axis and the call sign written beside each

With the band map, the information I need maps into a tiny window on a
vertical, scrollable axis and shows me the MOST IMPORTANT STUFF.  I don't
see how I'll improve my score by adding an additional monitor to my shack

NaP3 has a bandmap superimposed on band scope.  It ain't perfect, but it's
pretty cool:
