Purple Ring Around the Heading Indicator / Compass When Pinched

So just now I did a flight from KLAX-KSAN, and when I was on final for rwy 27 at KSAN, this happened…(look above the localizer)image
This happened all of a sudden, it did not affect my ability to land, but it was a little distracting

Same thing happened to me the other day while taxiing. Most recent version, iOS 9.3.3 iPad Air.

Same with me.

Look at your flight plan, I think it is telling you that you have to turn around to stick with the original line.

No, it’s happened to me when I had no flight plan and when I was taxiing.

No, it started when I was on final, which is where my FPL went. And I had APPR on

That’s odd…

Actually it means your spinning

It shows how much you are turning. Take the Speed and Altitude meters on the status bar for example :)

EDIT: I’m not sure how it managed to stay there though. Maybe you paused and resumed while turning?

But I wasn’t, I was completely straight

Can you reproduce this again, @Padi3_14?

Same with me. I was doing some patterns at KSAN and it just appeared, I tried calibrating my settings turning on and off autopilot, everything it just remained that way

It’s happened to me a few times too. I think when you press and hold onto it, it appears

This is a bug. Thanks for the report. FDS devs will take care of it.

I can’t because I don’t know what made it happen. It happened again at heatheow while holding short of Runway 27R in a C172

It happens when you pinch around it by 2 fingers, that originally for zoom function, and the pink line appear. And I cant find a way to turn it bck off.

not seen that one yet, will have to keep an eye out for it. Does it happen at a certain time in the flight, such as when you have just altered course…?

It happened to me too while I was flying patterns a while back.

Maybe the HDG indicator got stuck on the compass ?
