Probably a goofy question, but here goes. I found the "follow me" option on the map about a week or so ago. When I first enabled this I thought it showed my car's position driving "up the screen" even though I was driving west. Today when I was using the "follow me" option, the map was positioned with north at the top @ me driving left to right on the screen (again driving west). I much prefer my car position driving "up the screen". Is there a way to make this work again?

I use the Android version.

On the iPhone on the map there is a "locate me" arrow in the lower-right corner. I think that puts the map into "Follow Me" mode, though I've not tested it.

CK - On the android app, there are 3 dots in the upper right hand corner that will bring up settings like "follow me" on the map or "filter" on the list views.

There is a screenshot app for the Android.

Can't do screenshots. CK, on the Android app map, top right option toggles 'Follow Me' which causes the map to scroll when moving at your desired zoom like a navigation screen. Useful at highway speeds.

I don't see any Follow Me option on the iPhone. Perhaps you could post a screenshot of it in your photo album and link to it here, so that the other phone types can have an inkling.

I will have to try this feature and let you know my results.

I've only ever seen the map oriented North.
