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

I use course up. The main reason is most of my sailing is around Narragansett bay and RI sound so I'm rarely out of sight of land. Course up gives me the quickest feedback to compare against DR nav. If I were to sail to the great blue yonder I may switch to north up as then maintaining a compass course is more important
