wrong map orientation with "Course up" selection

Postby RogerF » 08 Sep 2019, 08:44

The map is correctly displayed if "North Up" or "Track Up" is selected.
However, selecting "Course up" produces a strange result (see snapshot)

This happens when navigating with a Goto (no route).

What you think, is it ok at my picture?
TRK = 60
CRS = 90
(As you can see at value windows)

Understood!

The orientation is based on the selected course, not on the direct route to the goto target.

Respecifying the goto target can be used to reset the CRS in sync with the Goto.

OK, just a misunderstanding of mine.

Trying to play with the CRS feature, I could not find where to define it when the CRS data is not displayed.
I do not display it as the target arrow is already visible on the compass indicator.

Suggestion:
- Also trigger the "CRS setting" menu from the "Trk Mag" button, just above the compas indicator.
This button is always displayed, so the menu will always be accessible.
