Top Down View

Recommended Posts

Simple question (I hope)about using the top down view Shift }. When I zoom out, the view suddenly rotates by 180 degrees and this is most confusing especially trying to orientate myself at an airport I'm not so familiar with. Is there any way of stopping it from doing that please.

As far as I know, it does that rotation at a certain point and you can't change it. I'm pretty sure that it always rotates so that north is up. If you can keep that in mind and have checked out a map beforehand, as well as remembering your heading, that might help with orienting yourself.I know of no way to stop that rotation.-stefan

Stefan,Thanks - its very irritating especially at night when you can't so easily see exactly when it rotates.
