What is most valuable?

Recent upgrades allows opacity view on the heat maps, allowing the floor plan to have better visibility. What I like is that Ekahau regularly takes the advice of real users and categorizes these point and adds them in product version releases. In other words, Ekahau really listens to their customers!

What needs improvement?

One area would be to allow several files to be opened and the ability to close only one of the files.
