How to use the Range Finder Tool

About

Please note that the range finder tool uses great circle distances. This means that on this flat map the expected end point may not be exactly as you expect on screen especially over large distances, but this is a truer estimation of the actual end point in real life.

Suggest coordinate entry for starting point.

Driving long distances over multiple days, might be useful to be able to plot circle ranges over multiple days, such as on flying maps.

Even without being able to click on an endpoint, it's sufficient to try a few numbers and refine a guess at a bearing. (This was the first thing I found when attempting to figure out from a photo where a lightning strike might have been...) Thanks!
