Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?
Try putting in a general destination WP and using track up.
We use all three, depending on circumstances, but use the track up for inter-island sailing to show cross track error and it stabilizes the screen.
Coming into a harbor or bay on a fairly steady heading, I'll switch to course up, and going north or at anchor (for the anchor drag alarm) north up works. With the radar overlay, I think we're all stuck w/ north up?
Another alternative I've tried, though I didn't like it, was to dampen the update time, thereby slowing the movement on the screen.
