Settings / Follow Mode
These settings control how vessel Follow Mode operates. When enabled, Follow Mode cause the display screen to follow the movement of your vessel. You enter this mode by tapping the arrow in the top-right of the display. Tapping a second time changes to course-up display. You can exit Follow Mode by tapping the arrow again or (if Sticky mode is not enabled) by panning or zooming the display.
- Use Offset in Follow Mode: When enabled and in Follow Mode, the vessel will be offset backwards so that a larger part of the display area is in front of it. Otherwise, the vessel will be in the center of the display.
- Follow Mode is Sticky: When disabled, any manual movement of the display (panning, zooming, rotation) immediately disables Follow mode. When enabled, Follow mode will remain enabled after you pan/zoom/rotate the display, but will be temporarily disabled. When you have not adjusted the display for 30 seconds, Follow mode will recenter display on your vessel.
- Preferred Orientation: (Only SEAiq Pilot) When in offset or heads-up mode, you can choose to orient using the vessel's course (COG) or heading (HDG). Normally these are very similar, but when moving slowly or astern they can be quite different.
