The TT5 compass has tow compass settings, "north-up" and "direction-up". North up works as expected, but all "direction-up" appears to do is the same as "North Up" but with East and West reversed. This makes no sense to me. I would have expected direction-up to have the direction you were heading at the top of the compass.

That is exactly what it is doing. You say East and West are reversed, so you are heading south. With Direction-up the arrow is always pointing to the North (down in your case). With North-up the arrow is pointing to your direction.

Not really, as the arrow is not pointing fixed to the north as expected it moves the same as when you select North up.

I wonder what was wrong with the old compass?
