Track up: The chart is rotated so that the
boat direction is to the top of the display.
This option is useful for navigating narrow
harbours or rivers. The TRACKER asks for a

Tip: If the chart redraws too
frequently, increase the course deviation
Course up: This option is only available if the
boat is navigating to a destination. The chart
is rotated so that the plotted course to the
destination is vertical.
The TRACKER can estimate the course after a
given time, based on the current speed and
heading (see section 3-4). The options are 2
minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours
