Head-up display means the information shown on the display (radar or ECDIS) is directed so that the vessel's heading is always pointing upward. This orientation corresponds to the visual view from the bridge in direction of the ship's heading. This orientation may require frequent rotations of the display contents. Changing the ship's course or yawing of the vessel may render this un-stabilised orientation mode unreadable.
