Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I'm wondering how to view the bearing of a destination using OSMAnd.

Do you mean OSMAnd? Or which Android app?

In "configure screen" menu, you can add a widget for bearing. AFAIK it gets displayed only in "straight lines" navigation mode, which I use in a boat profile.

Side note, when you tap on it, it change from magnetic to true, answering your other question, although in a cumbersome way.
