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

Guess it boils down to cognitive dissonance. Some folks brains are over learned in heads up or north up so get viscerally upset to see it otherwise. Whatever floats your boat. Problem is when you have crew hell bent on doing it their way or no way. Think it polite to do the way the captain/owner stipulates and suck it up. He/she will be the one taking the blame if you hit a hard edge.
