Settings / Own-Ship Settings / Heading Offset

Heading Offset

These settings control an offset to Own-Ship heading. The offset is an adjustment added to the heading sensor data for Own-Ship. This can be useful in situations where the heading value being received is innaccurate. Also, it is needed for use with some PPU devices (typically multi-pod devices) where the orientation of the two pods affects the received heading.

A notice is shown in the bottom-right of the chart display when a heading adjustment is active. Also, a panel labelled Heading (Unadjusted) is shown in the status bar showing the unadjusted value.
