    Is there a way to have google maps orientate to the directions I am going? For example right now if I am traveling south the blue arrow moves down the map. I would like the blue arrow to always point up and have the map re-orientate as I drive. Make sense?

    What you want is a track-up setting. I'd like it too. Currently, this isn't an option.

    I could have sworn that I had this working at one time. Oh well.

    I thought the exact same thing but cannot find any way to do it now.

    I haven't used my navigation much, but I could have sworn that it always had whatever direction I was going facing "up". Is this something new that was added in the latest update?

    I'm pretty sure my orientation arrow is always pointing up, and always has been. Am I missing something?

    Mine always points up as well, always has. It rotates as I drive and is oriented 'forward'. I'm going out shortly and will use it to get the sub shop just to double check. Perhaps you changed something in your settings?

    it's point up for Navigation, but not for regular maps, so if you navigate, yes the road moves for you, but if you are just looking at the map, it doesn't.

    Well that clears up the confusion. I thought we were talking about Navigation. Sorry.

    On my old Omnia i910 with google maps it did do that, for example I could be traveling north on Main street and the triangle would we moving with me while and the map would keep moving with it as well to the new area I drove to automatically.
