Getting the map to track up instead of heading

Is there an adjustment that i can make to the nav system in my wifes car that will show the map tracking up, instead of her current heading. She finds this confusing and complicated to see quickly where she is and which direction she will be truning. My garmin allows me to set it up this way but i cant figure it out for the Pioneer.

Usually you can touch the red compass that points to north and it will change between heading up and north up. sounds like she has it set to north up.

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.

It sounds like your antenna is shielded. Some windshields have a tinting made with copper or other metals in them. Perhaps the windshield is blocking the signal.

Here is a review you might like to read...
I got the Nav-Cam because of the AA link. This was a mistake (are you listening, AA?). Here are my big moans (I have many more, but let them pass).
(1)I had to paint the shiny silver aerial matt black to stop horrible windscreen reflections. (2) Most times I start it up it jams and I have to press reset with a paper clip. (3) It takes silly routes through the centre of towns along the route instead of trying to avoid them. (4) It is s-l-o-w, and frequently misses the junction I'm supposed to turn at. (5) The touch screen is hopeless and only works reliably with the rubber end of a pencil. Trying to scroll using a fingertip is hopeless. (6) My house and street (built in 2000) are not on the 2007 map. (7) The Europe maps are a disaster, particularly in Spain, where it can't tell a dirt track from an ordinary road, and frequently therefore sends me offroad. (8) The journey timings, especially in France, are hopelessly optimistic (about 70% of what they should be). (9) Map updates? What map updates? Since many local road numbers have been changed recently in France and Spain, this means the directions it gives are worse than useless.
Conclusion: A complete waste of money. If you want a Sat Nav, then do yourself a favour: buy *anything* but this. Better still, buy a map.

My sat nav shows opposite direction map

Binatones run igo. I would recommend finding the latest software and trying an update - then see if the problem still occurs. There is also a setting in the map view for making the map change to the direction of travel - this may be causing an issue.
"austech" is a good place to start.
