    Hello after the update I can no longer let the angle show me.
    Newly created waypoints, but only the distance.
    I need information how I can display from a certain point of the distance and the angle.
    I own the Pro - Version

    Hi,
    need to notice that your issue is not related with Locus GIS. Anyway please check: Settings > Guiding > Draw above/below guiding line > Bearing. See article: https://asammsoftware.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200003082
    If problem persist, please contact support on: support.locus@asamm.com

        Hello
        I made the settings in this menu but it makes no different.
        It works before the update to 2.18.
