Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?
Interesting that people say they go north up because of paper charts. From Scouts to university in geography I always oriented the map/chart to the course I wanted to follow rather than to north. Heck the m/c has true north at the top,not even magnetic.
On the boats generally have course up except in tight corners where I want the land features to stay in one place even I'd the course is changing frequently.
In South Africa doing lots of boat stuff. Departure north from Cape Town around December 15th. Arrival in the Caribbean around the beginning of February, after 5300 miles or so.
