I am the reverse of Paul. The iPad remains north up, the G1000 maps are all track up.

I haven’t got chance to put up my iPad Pro since I came back from the x-country flight. Will try both and see. I think the major reason I’d line to use the north up is that my CFI used track up on the MFD, which through me off most of the time. It’s probably a good idea to keep one for each for quick reference.

So today I finally took N614DS somewhere, as my wife and I flew a rescue dog from St George to Salt Lake City. First real cross country for us with ADSB in...which is on ForeFlight. Realized in flight that while I prefer North up on the G1000, I prefer Track up on ForeFlight. That way, I see the other traffic where it is in relation to my heading. Much easier.
Odd note about today’s flight. It was out first real cross country in N614DS. When we landed in Salt Lake City and taxi’d up to the ramp.....our old C172 was sitting there. Met the couple flying it, and it’s now getting a lot of work again as a trainer/rental.

Here it is. This is the current version of my third panel setup. After attempted the medial seat securing bolt attachment scheme, I found this to be more practical and fit my eye sight setup Image
I bought the RAM easy rolling racket for the iPad and dual suction cup base and put it on the storm vent.
