Dear friends,
I just installed Rider 550 on my Honda and I cannot find a way to select 2D map with driver orientation. I only get 2D with top North. Having used other (cheaper) Navi's before, I was able to have a 2D view at the driver's aspect... Rider 550 however, does not seem to provide it, which is for me a huge setback...

    Hi
    @LeoRider

    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Appearance --> Guidance View... Choose 2D (In direction of travel)
    ________________________

    The default Zoom Automatic zoom is... Zoom in to next turn ???
    When using 'Zoom in to next turn' I find some of the zoom levels are useless for a bike, the display is more like the view from the International Space Station

    I find that zoom 'Based on road type'... is better option when I'm on the Bike

    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Settings --> Appearance --> Automatic zoom.... Is it set to 'Zoom in to next turn'

    Also try....
    Tap on the direction of Travel Icon, above the + and - Signs
    To toggle between the North-up Overview Planning Map and the Driving Map view chosen in the Setting menus i.e... 2D in direction of travel or 3D

    The direction of Travel Icon is thinner more pointed in the 2D in direction of travel or 3D Driving view
