Navigating with a Humminbird 698 CI HD SI Combo
« on: May 02, 2018, 08:00:38 PM »

Probably a dumb question: But on every other GPS I have ever owned (this is my first HB) the map view included a Steer Arrow and Distance to Waypoint indicator.  I can find nothing like this on the HB.  So with only a 5" screen it is really difficult to see where I'm navigating, without a steer arrow or course indicator of some kind.  Anyone own one?  What am I missing?  I would happily trade this unit for all the accessories I need to get my old Lowrance 480 up and running again.  I am only using this unit for navigation since I have a larger side finder.  Anyone got any ideas about how to set this thing up a little better?

I have an 998 and 898 but I think all birds use the same method.  There should be a little boat / triangle symbol that is you.   I set mine to Course Up so the arrow is always pointing to where you are headed.   When you set Go To a waypoint is should display a line to the point and your position on the line. The distance to or time to point should be displayed.
I can show you Saturday Morning if you want.
