The functionality is severely limited in the bit map fixed-image mode.  
It seems to crash frequently if you use oversized images, and then zoom 
in and out or scroll to see various parts of the map.   Further, any 
time you zoom, scroll, select a new map or switch to a new window and 
then return, all existing symbols are lost.  You have to wait for each 
station's next transmission before you will see them again.    The only 
thing I have ever used it for is for a fixed view of the entire US for 
HF 30M operating.  Otherwise, I don't really consider it very useful.
