Usefull function for balloon pilots

I am using pathaway as a moving map in hot air balloons. A nice feature would be to have a map not centered to the actual position but at the position 3, 5 or 10 minutes away (similar to the circles already available in pathaway). So pathaway could calulate an estimated postion based on current direction and speed. That would help looking ahead to see if a good landing site is on the way. I don't know if other people would need such function as well but may there are more balloon pilots who are interested in such functions.

Looking forward to see pathaway further improving.
