Default Garmin 840 xs

I just installed a new garmin 840 xs. I went out for the first time with it this past weekend and the chart is not moving with the boat. I can scroll down to find the boat, but that isn't right. It's new to me and I couldn't find anthing in the setting. Any help would be great.

Sounds like you have your cursor (crosshairs) up on the Chart. Any time you do this, the Chart stays at the cursor position, no matter where your current position. Remove the cursor from the Chart to see your current position, assuming you have a GPS fix.

This sounds very likely.
