On the map screen there is a compass icon which can be locked or unlocked. What exactly does this do, cause I cannot see any difference between locked and unlocked. The map does not seem to change at all. What am I missing?

And... How do I change from map to real view (satellite)?

Thanks, Cider Boy

There is a icon that looks like 3 sheets of paper, click that and you will see 3 map options. Pick the satellite one.

LuvMyTJ, thanks for the answer, but I must be dense as a rock. I went out flying around my neighborhood and both locked and unlocked the map screen and saw absolutely, no change at all (except for the icon changing). Locked or unlocked, it seems to make no difference ???

LuvMyTJ, upon further investigation I think I have discovered my "problem". Since I did not have a smartphone, and my old Galaxy Tab 2 would not work, I had to buy a tablet to use and I was looking to save a little money. I believe that the tablet I bought, Insignia Flex 8 inch, does not have a built in magnetic compass. I guess I will continue to look north LOL.
