Erich replied to me when I asked:
Hi, the program centers the map on your locator only with the zoom 1 (Z1) map. The zoom 2 map is always centered on the satellite to avoid that the satellite is outside the program window. In menu 'Options' un-check start option 'zoom 2', and save the change if you want the program to start with the map centered on you QTH.

I don't think I ever used used anything other than zoom 1 prior... so I didn't even think to check zoom mode after installation.

Upgraded to the new ver D SAT32 and working ok. I haave the Observer 
stored and is correct for my QTH(Reno), however the map does not center 
on the qth or the U.S.? unless I engage a satellite specifically. Am I 
missing something in the set up?
ThanksJim KI6WJ

Go into the Setup -> Options menu and make sure that "center map on 
observer" is enabled.
