    When I turn on maps I wanted to know if there is a way for it to show up so that I am driving up the screen kind of like it does when you use the navigation.

    Thanks.

    Turn on GPS and Show Location.

    Will this keep my icon moving in the up direction or just center it?

    my location centers the map on you icon, and follows you as you progress. it uses the compass I belive, so the map is always orientated north

    I forget if it was in Maps or Navigation, but I accidentally found that tapping the compass icon switches the map orientation from "north is up" to "forward is up."
