The orientation of the map can be fixed as north-oriented, or it can use the compass in the iPhone and iPad to follow your position as you turn to face different directions. You can tap on the map to zoom in, rotate the map by turning it with two fingers, or just tap the compass icon in the corner of the map to reset it to point north once more.
