E120 Raymarine Chart Rotated 90 Degrees ?

Hi All
I need assistance once again.
I was due to go out for a days sail in the bay today, fired up my chart plotter and discovered the chart was rotated 90 degrees to west. Vessel heading on display still faces true to actual vessel heading. The vessel position seems ok as it is moored but moored in the wrong direction due to chart rotation.

Also the AIS (500) displayed the vessels as per normal but after trying to figure out how to rotate the chart, I seem to have lost the AIS vessel overlay display on the plotter.

Can anyone give me advice on why it could be that the chart is suddenly rotated?

Hi GordyMay,
I checked the site out - actually have the hardcopy manuals but they do not address this situation unfortunately

The E120 will not be able to give a correct direction until you are underway and it has previous data from its' GPS to know which way you are going. If you are not moving the GPS reads the same point over and over and cannot determine direction.
