Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Is the position not updating to the actual position?

Or is it the orientation of the boat icon is not reflecting the actual direction/heading of the boat at the time?

I would advise, turning Off the device for some time, at least a couple of hours, or at minimum an hour. This might give it cooling-down time and a rest-reset, that could help with the problem if it is only temporary.
