    Hi,

    divede into 8 zones (N, NE, E, SE, S, etc) each of 45 degree. Make 8 bitmaps with an arrow and display it at the vehicle location.

    another option is to draw an arrow near the pushpin or bitmap of the vehicle. I think the first solution is bettern. However if it is meanth for a whole fleet it is depending on the fact if you wants a symbol per vehicle or not.

    Other options is to display the direction in the text balloon (witch I mostly do). This way it is free choosing bitmaps or symbol (I like easy solutions).

    You can also connect several positions with an arrow witch is another option.

    So did I give you toughts to think over ?
