I know I can click on the compass and the map will reorient so that I can see if I'm going West - then I'm heading toward the LEFT.
I'm very good at reading maps and that's the way I want it displayed; but I like the other things we get from Waze.
My brother said it's an option on Google maps and you can set it to North is ALWASY up top.
And, on this site it says you get 200 points when I friend signs up. I got my brother to sign up (I was physically with him) and it did ask (how did you hear about us) but it DID NOT have a place to put my info in - thus, no points for me!
