Default Garmin GPS "Compass" screen

Do any of the Garmin unit still have this screen?



Had something like that on an old handheld. To me it makes navigating to a waypoint 10x easier than using the Raymarine "road" or heading readouts.

I think they quit using it after 3010,3210. I agree, loved that screen.

My HH Oregon 400c has it. The 4/5/6/7000 series units have other Compas rose displays that do similar things but in different formats...

How about just use the chart in head up mode, it doesn't get any easier than that!! Why would you want to look at a compass rose display, when you have a chart?

Do you have an example of the heads up mode?

This just seems the easiest for the type of fishing I do offshore ..... I'm debating picking up a handheld , just to "point" me in the right direction

I use the compass screen going home and the chart screen heading to the fishing grounds.
