Another C80 Question

Last time we chartered, the boat had a Raymarine 435 chart plotter. One useful feature we discovered on it was the ability to display a 90 degree relative bearing line. This was great for finding a lay line, etc.

We've put a C80 chartplotter on our current boat. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to do that on it. Surely, the otherwise much nicer C80 isn't missing a basic feature of the 435?

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but he C80 can do electronic bearing lines (EBL). If you have the manual for the C80, take a look around pg 137.

Ah, that might do it. Do you know if that works sans radar? I'll give it a try next time I get out to the boat.

I'm not sure as I have not tried the function that much. Let me know if it works.
