I've paid for planeplotter after using VRS for a while. I feel completely underwhelmed by the product.

Is there something I am missing with features that could make me like it more? I was mostly having a terrible time with the map and moving it around and zooming.
I'm wondering if there are any decent guides to getting it configured to look a little more clean. After running it for a few days my whole screen would have be covered with the gray aircraft tracks, and they aren't even that smooth?
