How do I change which side is up during navigation on a TomTom Start classic

I want driving side up. Not the north side up
But I do not see an option to change this in de settings?

I use 2d map

    AFAIK only the 3D display is North-up. That's how my Ease does it :-/ .

    The Direction of travel Pointer is flat & squat for the North-up overview Map[/b]

    Simply tap on the direction of travel Icon to toggle between the default 2D or 3D driving view (See Note...(1) and the North-up overview Map

    The default 3D driving view direction of travel Icon is more pointed

    Have you by any chance turned off automatic Map switchng in the Settings menus ???... because unless you are manually Tapping the direction of travel Icon the device should automaticity change to the default Driving view when the vehicle reaches approximately 12 MPH
    Default Driving view is 3D
    Note...(1) In the setting menu the default driving view can be changed to either 3D or 2D in direction of travel

    Hi
    @SandraStart

    More info on Automatic Map Switching
    Automatic Map Switching happens at both the Start and End of you journey
    With Automatic Map Switching turned on (Default) the device automaticity changes to the Driving view when the vehicle reaches approximately 12 MPH and Automaticity switches to the North-up Overview Map on reaching your destination

    Also at the end of your journey
    Automatic Route Clearance Rules (As far as I recall)
    (1)… When you arrive to destination the route will be cleared (Inside a 50m radius)
    (2)… When the last known location is less than 400 meters from your destination AND it has been more than 120 minutes since the user suspend/turn off device, the route will be cleared automatically on the device.
    (3)… When the user suspends the device for more than a week, the route will be cleared automatically on the device.
    ____________________________________

    Maybe useful... In the Setting menu
    You can turn off the automatic Map switching to the North-up overview map

    With "Automatic Map Switching" turned off when you arrive at your destination the device will continue using your chosen navigation screen to show your present location...

    Note... you may need to tap the Plus Icon button (Situated Under the 'Direction of Travel' Icon) a couple of times to zoom in for the map detail
    (At least it stops the the Map switching to the North-up overview map with a zoom level view like the view from International Space Station)
    ____________________________________

    Setting-up... From the main screen
    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Appearance....
    Turn off Automatic Map view switching
    Tap Blue arrow head Icon ( > ) top right on screen to exit

    But unfortunately this has an effect to both ends of the journey.....
    If you have turned off Automatic Map view switching
    Now whenever you have planned a route, you will have to tap the "Lets Go" banner or the "Direction of travel Icon" the arrowhead above the plus and minus buttons
    To switch to your chosen navigating screen
    The Map does not switch at either the start or the end of your journey
    _____________________________________

    There are also three options for the Zoom function.....
    (1)..... Zoom into next turn
    (2)..... Based on road type... I prefer the zoom set to 'Based on road type'
    (3)..... None
    From the main screen
    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Appearance --> Automatic zoom....
    Choose the required option
    Tap Blue arrow head Icon ( > ) top right on screen to exit
