lol yes i've noticed this as well and there's not much you can do
I can't believe I searched for this and NOTHING came up.
When traveling North West, my compass needle shows North East, and when going North East, it shows North West.
North and South are fine with their respective displays, but East and West are backwards.
dont know why but i've never thought of that. I honestly dont remember ever seeing the compass bmps though.. and i've gone line by line thru every iguidance since version 2. Good luck with that... i'll probably just wait til version 5 is released later this year ... or say the hell with iguidance when garmin mobile pc gets its embedding issues sorted
No wonder I keep getting lost! As long as turn left doesn't mean turn right.
As I looked closer at the needle, I realize its operation. The needle tip is always pointing towards NORTH, so when you turn, so does the needle, but not in the way that you would expect a compass to turn, so that is why its direction appears backwards. I would much rather have a compass with "standard" operation.
