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.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
