Seems to work fine now that I turned off the autozoom feature. I have no idea why that changed north up to heading up, but it worked, whereas before, changing that option under map options changed nothing.

Yay!

It's all good now...

Yep...I was moving and had signal, etc...it navigating me and all, and the "heading up" option was set.

Still did north up, whether I picked "heading up" or "north up"...

Thank you for the manual 🙂 I will see if there is anything in there that can help me...

There is a 53 page user manual in the box (cd), on Mag's own site and even cross posted here and on page 4 of it:

North Up or Heading Up. The orientation of the map screen can be customized to North Up or Heading Up by accessing the Options Menu. With North Up selected, the top of the map will always be pointing
north, with Heading Up the top of the map is in the direction you are heading.

The unit doesn't have a true compass, so unless you are in motion so it can calculate your direction, the map won't update. I have mine set to heading up and it works fine so ...

As for the manual, megallan makes it available electronically (I suppose to cut cost and lets assume save trees). You can down load it as a pdf from them. There is a link to it from this site's "file section".

Alrighty....I got my GC the other day and LOVE it. HUGE step up from what I had before.

My only real complaint is that, after navigating my work commute a couple of times now for practice getting to coordinates, I can't for the life of me get the map view to show HEADING UP instead of North up. I have tried under map options changing it there....also tried it under the menu while on the map. Tried switching back and forth, but it ALWAYS shows north up.

Now MAYYYYYYBEEEEEE.....it won't show heading up until you are closer to the coordinates and it starts zooming in??? But I dunno....seemed like it never switched for me. I *did* switch on the dashboard screen, which is great....just not the map.

And the manual...oh YEAH...there is NO MANUAL hehehehhehe.... 🙂

Any ideas for me??
