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

Not only do I have chart and plotter North up, my car navigation system has to be North up as well. I have tried using course up but with every glance at the plotter or nav system my eyes first look for the North cursor. That's a step that's not needed with North up.
