The GPS Options section of the Configuration Dialog provides settings for GPS and Video Playback. Some of these settings were previously in the GPS Menu.
These setting impact the display of vessels for GPS tracking and fly-through video playback. The 'vessel' displays at the location of the GPS or camera, and orients to the direction of travel.
Enable this setting to update the extent of the map to keep the GPS location on screen. This setting is also available on the GPS toolbar. If enabled, the main view will automatically pan when the GPS vessel approaches the edge of the view to keep the vessel in the view.

Specify a range ring or buffer to be drawn around the GPS vessel.
Specify the color of the GPS vessel.
Choose from small, medium or large for the GPS vessel icon size.

Specify the units reported in the GPS information. Choose from the following options:

Show Course Line on the Map
If the Show Course Line option is checked, a line will be drawn from the GPS vessel in the direction that the GPS is headed.
When checked the map view will rotate dynamically based on the GPS heading, so the current heading is always at the top of the map. The heading must change by 5 degrees to cause the view rotation to be changed. This setting is also available on the GPS toolbar.
