It seems to add each of the destinations I search as an object/layer, and the route as a layer, automatically.

Interesting, wonder why I have to be "so special" ??

Glad it does. All my GPS are North up as that doesn't get me dizzy with rotating maps. I hate rotating maps

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Follow me on the spot

Amen!
I wish there was some way to turn that crap off so it just stayed in proper orientation.

I don't care for the 3D effect at all either. I drive around finding addresses all day and I want a flat, top-down, north is up map.

My Garmin 2797 offers you the choice of

  • 3D
  • 2D
  • Top is North
  • Rotating in Direction of Travel ( and this is the one that I use 99% of the time.


Top is North does not help you in upcoming turns when you want to see what the road looks like.


the 7 inch display is a terrific asset for me, I can view how the road ahead is going to effect how I drive, or if on a bike, how twisty that next turn is going to be.


that is why on my Bike, the 2797 is mounted dead center, just below the dash.


However, 2 years ago, when traveling on my bike through Georgia and Alabama on a darkened sky day with it raining all the time, I had to stop and put the GPS in Top is North.... I got so confused as to which way I was going, it almost made me sick.... no sunlight to fix my internal compass



an old country store, with Plowshares sitting in the floor is where I stopped and got my bearings.... a sandwich, chocolate milk, and a cooky..... then the GPS got reprogrammed so that I could actually tell that "yes, you are "for the most part, actually going Northwest, and now Southeast"... funny thing about that country store. I asked the girl at the counter " which way is North?" I got the funniest look from her, and she said I just follow the road.



following riverbanks can really get you turned around.
