Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?

I'm also in the 'north up' crowd. It would confuse me if my compass was showing me on a 180° heading and the chartplotter showed me heading toward the top of the electronic map. True that you have to think about what is to port and to starboard when travelling South, but I need the mental gymnastics to keep the cobwebs outa my head.
