Own Ship Icon Heading

Is it possible for the icon for my boat to be oriented according to the compass input instead of COG? When I am at the dock or at anchor it bothers me to see my ship icon spinning around.

Thanks,
Greg

Greg...
As you can see on this screenshot, the boat is oriented according to HDG, when available. In older versions of OpenCPN there was a bug in this though, so if you are not at 3.2.2, upgrade. If you are and it still does have a problem, please post a while of your NMEA stream recorded with the VDR plugin...

Thank you Pavel. Upgrading from 3.2 to 3.2.2 took care of it.
