Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?
I run the chartplotter north up (paper chart user) and radar head up (conventional).
I will use them both head up, perhaps with an overlay) when I am teaching folks how to read radar.
The jumpiness of the course plotter on the course mode is distracting to me.
My netbook charts are always north up as they are raster.
