Perspective Mode - Fixed Facing North?

I love Perspective Mode, it looks phenomenal, but is driving me crazy. I keep getting turned around since the perspective is constantly changing. Is it possible to have it fixed facing north? Much easier to use that way.

Nope. (I'm assuming you mean Perspective Mode but fixed to face North instead of rotating as you turn. Otherwise of course you can have Fixed North, Fixed Direction of Travel, or Perspective.)

Actually I just changed mine from fixed north to perspective today. I like it much better. When I bring up the nav map there's the icon bar on the left with about 6 buttons. Its one of the buttons near the bottom.

how the hell can you have perspective fixed while you're driving? that doesn't make physical sense...

think about it. your screen would at minimum have to be a cylinder and you would have to look at it while walking around it lol.
