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

Fails to integrate rt.parietal lobe functions and pathways from foccular nodular cerebellar cortical pathways. For a sailor sleeping in a quarter berth in the dark in a significant confused sea then waking his orientation is not set. Because of this first thing I do is put my head out of the companion way and scan the horizon. Allows my proprioception system to get working.then look at the chart.then look at the screen. Otherwise all screwed up regardless north or heads up.
