What's Up?

It's nice knowing that the GPS is oriented the same way I am in track up mode, but I can't stand for the display to be updated all the time. This is on the color StreetPilot III.

 

When I'm searching for a cache in a park area, I set it to point the arrow in the direction I want to go and I don't care about the orientation. If I had topo maps loaded, I might use track up.

Track up when driving so I turn the correct way. Nothings worst then looking at a north up map while headed south and turning the wronge way because you brain can't turn the map around in your head. icon_eek.gif

 

Now when on foot I go north up. Moving that slow the map doesn't alway orient it self real well to my direction of travel and if it is north up I can use my compass to orient it and myself. Just don't get the compass to close to the GPS the batteries will throw your compass off. icon_smile.gif
