In the section Flight mode, you can see what each of these screens displays.

Map screen

The screen currently shows you airspaces and information on an active waypoint. You can load airspace files onto your Connect 1 via USB connection and select a file as part of your flight preparation. The orientation of the map can be changed to "heading up" by tapping on it. Zooming in and out is done with the + and - keys and is likely done in flight. In addition you have a North indicator on the map.
