The Rider 400 is what we call a Nav4 device. In the configuration options under Appearance / Guidance View you will see two options. You can select either 3D or 2D (direction of travel). Set this to 3D.
If you need a quick 2D overview of your current route, you can press that tiny compass arrow above the +/- button on the main screen to flip back and forth between 3D and 2D (north up) views.

Yeh hi ... I get the 3D 2D bit ... But with no route planned the overview is far away ...it's not at road level ... Without me zooming in ... But when I have a route planned it's obviously at street view ...

So it IS the zoom that is bothering you. It sounds as though your 400 is defaulting to a wide 3D zoom level when no route is planned.

You can of course change that by hitting the + button a few times, but it sounds like it's the fact that it keeps defaulting to the wide zoom that is bothering you.
What happens if you set your Appearance / Automatic Zoom = None? Does it come up at a reasonable zoom level then (after you've once got it set as you like)? Or if not, does "Based on road type" suit you any better?

Hi ya
Automatic zoom=none makes no difference or road type ...your correct the default wide angle zoom level is what's bugging me ... I've enough things to remember without having to zoom in a few times before I set off Are they all the same ?
