    .....just bought this one and disappointed with the "preferences" for it. There really aren't any.

    Used it for the first time the other day and I prefer to have the arrow following the roadway in the direction that I am traveling. The orientation is completely different from what I was using previously (XXL 530•S) so I find the new XXL 550•T to be too confusing.

    Is there a setting somewhere that I can orient the screen in the same direction that I am traveling?

    In the meantime I will be going back to using the 530•S with the charging cord from the 550•T to get the live traffic which is all I really wanted the 550•T for in the first place.

    Thanks.

    The 550 has the EasyMenu with fewer user options. Choosing to show in 2D direction of travel is not available.

    The 3D view will show the direction you're travelling. Tap the left hand section of the status bar to switch between them.
