Not planned

    Wow!  I totally disagree with the "Track up is a very intuitive way to navigate a route..." statement.  Totally depends upon the user.  I ALWAYS have my map with North up and so I find Track Up very disorienting. I agree, however, that it would be good to be able to reliably "lock in" which ever mode you want.

    EVERY vehicle I own including my Indian motorcycle and Chevy Tahoe - along with my wife's KIA (not to mention google maps on our smart phone) have "navigate up" as the default - why would they all design their systems this way if it were not the most popular and useful of all navigation modes.

    +1 on this feature request. Doesn't make any sense not t have it.

    +1, this is extremely difficult to deal with on a motorcycle mount with gloves on.

    Gaia... any updates on this?  This should be a fairly easy fix to a pretty critical feature.  When do you expect to have it ready?

    This one is a deal breaker for me also. It seems any time you touch the map screen it toggles the mode. Extremely annoying. Any plans to implement the ability to lock the screen in the mode of your choice (course up\north up)? It's a standard feature on most stand alone gps's. Why not GAIA?

    I'm just about right behind you. I love having the large tablet screen but the track up thing is rapidly becoming a deal breaker.

    We don't have plans for anything like this at the moment, but I do have an open request for this feature and I've added your votes.

    Thanks for suggesting this. We will update here if this feature becomes available.
