Is the gauge instrument (Cessna 152) in the game showing the nose heading while the app is showing the magnetic heading? If so I am not sure I understand the difference. They are off by quite a lot.
The ‘nose’ heading is your magnetic heading.
I am not sure i am understanding your question.
Ah okay. Then I’m not sure what heading the app is showing. Aren’t there other headings like tracking heading? I’m just a bit confused about the differences between them. So is there just your magnetic heading and tracking heading?
- Magnetic Heading - what you see on your compass
- True heading - what you see on your (paper) map before correcting to Magnetic
- Desired Heading - The heading (track) to get to your destination with no drift (wind) correction
I don’t think I’ve ever opened the VFR map in over 200 hrs so I can’t offer any insight into what is shown on the map.
Thanks! I appreciate it.
