Compass offset uneffective in autopilot GPS mode
Hello everyone, using Openplotter on Raspi 3B+ and Pypilot on Sean's Tinypilot, I firstly want to thank Sean for his superb work.
I would like to solve a little issue occurring with autopilot in GPS mode. For practical reason (mainly steel hull and wish to get the display visible from the cockpit aft) the Tinypilot is not parallel to the heading line. I have adjusted the heading offset to 108° as to get the actual magnetic value on the display. This setting is working fine in compass mode, but as soon I switch to gps mode by activating a route the offset is no more used and the requested heading is dropped by 108°. Your help would be welcome as I am more newbie than geek...
