The nuvi and LIVE devices allow you to set the map view to either North Up, Track Up, or 3D. When set to North Up, the map on a device will display North at the top of the screen at all times. If set to Track Up, the direction in which you're traveling will remain at the top of the screen. Both North Up and Track Up are 2D views. When set to 3D view, the map will be track up but will also take on a 3-Dimensional appearance.
