Little circle on sat page (GPSMAP76S)

Recommended Posts

Yes. When you have your unit set to 'North Up', it does in fact show your direction of travel. The top is north, the bottom of the ring is south. As you move along, change directions and watch it change too as it moves along the ring.

Eric, I agree with EraSeek. I believe the open circle on the horizon ring does indeed indicate your current or last known heading when your GPS Information Page is set to display North Up. The Garmin manuals (hardcopy or online) don't seem to mention this.
