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.

How do I get the display to show my drive direction to be straight ahead, not 'NORTH' as being straight ahead?


In the navigation options menu, select Map Options and then Map Mode. Select Head Up, 2D or Head Up, 3D as desired.

Was going north and the map said i was going south


Are you sure you were heading north at that particular time?
Gps show your direction at that moment and time. Just because your road is going north does not mean that the road is always going north, sometimes they change directions to go around obstacles that were in the way of the road design, IE mountain, town, river.
The sign for the highway may say your are heading north when in actuality you are heading south to go around something.

The gps will not take into consideration the curve of the road, it just tells you the direction you are heading. Hope this helps.

Boat on screen does not point the direction the boat is going e-80 series also chart will not go course up or heading up like the radar does unit is set in relative motion mode


The direction of the boat symbol is depending on the compass course from the autopilot. You will see that your GPS course (COG) and magnetig heading on the autopilot differs. Solution is to calibrate autopilot compass. Will advice you to not use course up, stick to north up or heading up.

Hi!
Please go into the menu and select the 'Nav' tab then choose the 'Chart Orientation' setting and set to 'North - Up', also make sure 'North Reference' is set to 'True'.
If that doesn't work, reset the sounder back to factory defaults and try again.
Here's the manual to you sounder:

SCREEN ORIENTATION FLIPPING


I have the same problem, it started after updating. Spoke with Lowrance tech and said it is a hard drive problem.
I had to purchase a 600 for $250 because they gave me a discount for having paid for the update and the unit
is malfunctioning. They refused to consider that it may be a software problem. The screen loses calibration and
the unit goes balistic with the orientation. Have had the unit for 4 years with no problem until updates were installed

MY GARMIN NUVI 760 says north on a road when it should show south

Furuno Radar Model 1833C


You have two things that orient the radar, on is called heading (or bearing) alignment. This is where you aim your radar so that a target comes up at 12 o'clock when dead ahead. Access this mode by pressing and holding menu duing power on, and go in to Installation Mode, radar setup, next page, align heading. I have posted a "tip" on this, search for VX2 radar alignment.
After this is done, North up is accomplished by having a magnetic input (fluxgate compass or autopilot). Calibration of this compass varies, but if it is accurate, then all should line up nicely.

Nautilus problems


Hello:

I also have the Nautilus & the processor just isn't as fast as the newer units. You can adjust the track up mode to only refresh when the rotation of the map is over a cert amount, degrees, (resloution angle) if you have it set to a low value it will continually keep the route dead up & constantly refresh.

See section 4.3 Map orientation in the manual.

On the route reversal are you getting the pop up screen that alerts you that the route has been reversed?

I assume you have a manual?

I am actually contemplating selling my unit as I have a Garmin 478 from work & the screen is much easier to read in the bright sunlight. I had my Sitex on my Grady which had a bimini, but my Mako CC does not & the sunlight washes it out.

I'm thinking $375 for the whole unit with a wide area chart of MA.
