Question about Standard Horizon CP-1000C GPS Receiver
It is not likely that there is a software error that could cause that problem so I'm going to cover some basic information first. Forgive me if I'm covering stuff you already know. There are 3 chart orientation modes, North Up, Heads Up, and Course Up. North Up you already know! In Heads Up mode, the chart will only orient heads up when the boat is moving. Unless you have an electronic compass interfaced to your GPS it has no way of knowing which way you are facing. Once you start to move, it compares your new position to the old position to determine which way is heads up. If you are not moving, the map defaults to North Up even if you are in heads up mode. Course Up mode is commonly mistaken for Heads Up. In Course Up mode, the GPS orients the top of the screen toward a waypoint that you have told the GPS to go to. If no waypoint is selected, the GPS will default to North Up orientation. So I guess what I'm saying is, make sure the boat is moving, and make sure you're not in course up mode (unless you want to be).
In the unlikely event that there is a software error causing this problem, it can easily be fixed by getting an update from Standard Horizon. You can either get them to send you an update chip, or download it online and copy it to a blank C Map card. When you turn the GPS there will be a message on the opening screen that identifies you software version. Get that information before you call Standard.
