Small change to the directional scanner

Would like to see an option to change the range of the directional scanner using AU rather then kilometers.
It's pretty annoying to have to copy paste the range in kilometers every time you wanna see if the target is within a certain range of you.
They could just add a dropbox where you can select either AU or km. I believe this feature would vastly improve the speed of which scouts would be able to locate targets.

KM is pretty useful if you're trying to narrow down exactly where something is, for example figuring out which moon a tower is at. That said, I would also love to be able to switch to AU, or just type "2AU" in range box.

angle slider should be easier to adjust too

currently it is difficult to even see what angle you have when angle is small like below 60

why not just have buttons 5 15 30 60 180 360 or so i dont think there's more angles you can use anyway, or at least show numeric value

and yes it's pain to calculate damned AU's all the time

+1 for AU/KM dropdown and also +1 for Angle Buttons instead of slider. The slider is stupid.
