Simulated Analog S/PWR Meter

Being a “Stand Along” user of my 6400M (non-SmartSDR user), are there any upgrade plans by Flex to add a menu option to select between an analog type S/PWR meter and Bar graph meter on the radio’s TFT screen?  (6400M, 6600M and Maestro). Something similar to the SunSDR MB1, ICOM IC-7610 and Yaesu FT-890S radios.

    I too would love to see more cosmetic  improvements to the UI but I know that there are more pressing issues to address first.

    But as far as a meter I agree an analog style one would be nice to have as an option.

    I would assume configuring an analog type S/PWR meter should be something very simple to program and implement. SunSDR, Kenwood, Icom and Yaesu all don't seem to have and issues. Being a non-SmartSDR user, I feel a bit second class user.  All Flex updates appear to be focused toward SmartSDR users only.

    I don't think Flex is considering this as it would take more space up on the screen then the bar meter does.
