The following settings are found Menu tab, Display preferences. There are additional screen settings (see related documents, at the foot of this page) that effect the screen as well.

Auto rotate map / track up

Map auto rotate, or track up, is where the map rotates to keep the direction you are heading straight up the screen.

Night vision

Night vision is where the map and trip view are displayed with a red overlay. If you are out in the dark your eyes become accustomed to the dark, this is called night vision. If you look at a bright white screen, your eyes will lose this adjustment. By making the screen red, your night vision is not lost when you look at the app, and it will be eaiser to use ViewRanger at night.
