Is your chart set so north is up, or is it set towards your heading?, that can make things seem goofy.  I always keep mine on north up, keeps things simple.

I have tried course up and north up.i guess I have been on course up a lot more.but charts jump around a lot but when moving it is easy for me to read.from my research so far it sounds like this puck with heading sensor will clear some of that up but I was hoping to get some more imput...when I choose north up I get confused with my boat direction toward my waypoint

I have one - it will settle up the readings a ton, it needs to be tested in mounting location as something like a trolling motor's magnets or other metal can affect the compass.
LOVE mine...

Had the same problem on last boat with 799 on front with build-in ant. Added a puck and it improved 100% :D Still a little jumpy but did help. Just rigged you Ranger with twin 1199's and both has there own puck. Very steady but some jump. I would go for the ext. puck Amazon has great prices. I think you will alway get some jump in open water with the wind blowing but ext. puck helps
