Auto-Center Map

Selecting the option on the View menu causes the map display to:

  1. Auto-center the map at the current GPS coordinates.
  2. Displays either cross-hairs (for a stationary station) or bearing pointer (for a moving station) at the center of the map, or the APRS symbol for the local station (rotated on course for a moving station).

As the station moves, the map will move behind the bearing pointer to keep the local station at the center, regardless of the current zoom level.

Note that this may cause difficulties if you have also selected tracking other stations and that station moves off the map relative to your local station; the map may keep jumping back and forth trying to keep both stations on the map. In this case, we recommend turning off either auto-centering or tracking that particular station (or disabling auto-panning for tracked stations).
