You have that many IGates that a small circle around them
clutters the screen?  Well, then that is good information 
that might suggest that there are too many active IGates
in that area...

In our area, with about 300 stations on the map, we
usually see about 3 active igates...  Hummh....  ANd
seeing them all the time (or not) lets me know in real
time if they are active or not...

I like to see the data all the time and not have to
hit "i" key each time the map changes to see the current
status of IGates..   In your case, you could toggle
it off and leave it off.  But I like to be able to hve
it remain on...    Bob

No, it would not make sense to me to always enable this function.  It would
clutter the screen and most APRS users could not care less about which
stations are I-Gates.  Those that do, can hit the letter "i" in WinAPRS and
get that information during the few times that even they want to see those
stations highlighted on their screen.
