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

Well after several attempts to run course up on my chart plotter, I give up. It just does not work for me. The Admiral now also prefers north up. Having the chart pivot around the boat on the display drives me crazy. Newbies on the boat will just need to get used to it. I guess I have had too many years in using paper charts, something about teaching old dogs new tricks.

It was an interesting discussion, thanks for everyone's input.
