Simrad RS 35 - degrees magnetic only?

Hi, I am installing a new Simrad RS35 (and HS35). It has NMEA 0183 input from an Evermore SA320 GPS. All bearings (eg AIS to targets, and CoG) are displayed as degrees magnetic. I have only viewed it in the marina where SoG is zero and CoG is "348 deg m" so it is subtracting the correct variation, 12, off 360/0). All bearings to AIS targets are in degrees magnetic.

Is there a set-up option to use degrees True? (I have not seen any illustrations other than True, the manual makes no mention of it and the support people here in Aus. seem not to know.)

Thanks Andrew
