select to have the GPS display direction in terms of compass points but not in terms of degrees. Or at least I can on my DNX7180. But it took some experimenting to accomplish it, because my DNX7180 manual didn't cover the Garmin GPS program, only the other functions.
I forget exactly how I did it, but if you touch the lower-right corner display, you should be able to select direction, mph, elevation, or distance to destination. Maybe one or two others. After one particular update to the firmware, I could display up to four stacked data windows instead of just one in the lower right. I liked that so I've left it that way for the last couple of years.
