    Hello

    In your profile menu configuration you have checked the box:
    Configuration / Activity profile / map view / signpost (5.1.6.6 of the manual) next event.

    Either you would have preferred something else, the compass why not but I don't see the point!

    The management of this arrow:

    - Distance to the next Wpt (RoadBook or RTE type road), this indication works correctly and is very useful,
    - The arrow is supposed to give direction of the next WPT. It was correctly handled with TwoNav 3.x now it is no longer the case although it has improved a lot in 4.8. So in 4.8 if you use Wpt, or a * .rte format file it works almost "correctly", with a * .trk file on a RoadBook type track it is almost usable. For a pure trace or a gpx I have not tried it since 4.7.

    As it stands (this is an observation) it gives, either the direction of the next WPT, or the direction of the next RoadBook point, or the direction to follow to join directly  the track ... Near a WPT, in the circle of capture it remains towards the WPT, so a past faith is in the back.
    It was perfect in TN 3.x since 4.x unfortunately it's not ideal.

    The small icon next to it is the icon (your choice!) of the next point.

    Concretely if it was well managed ..
    - You have the distance to the next point of change of direction,
    - You would have the direction to reach this point (Either the direction to follow with a correctly used compass),
    - you have the icon you have chosen for the following Wpt (anticipation)

    By placing a WPT on each change of direction, these three indications are enough to navigate quickly, without spending time reading the map.

    Thanks for the quick reply. This explains why I do not find much sense in the arrow:-)

    I hope this is improved in the next version.

    Remaining questions:

    - could I replace the arrow e.g. with the compass? How would I do this?

    - can the font size be changed?

    Thanks.

    hello,

    Remaining questions:

    NO - could I replace the arrow e.g. with the compass? How would I do this?

    NO - can the font size be changed?

    See the manual § 5.1.6.6
