Summary0002107: Rotor indicating 180 degrees off

click on Atlantic ocean area
Watch indicator dial and position of rotor moves to 270 degrees instead of 90 degrees.

Sorry; another problem caused by refactor of the Locator code. The Heading() function had two versions: one that flipped 180 degrees, and one that didn't -- I chose the wrong one.

Fortunately, the Rotator app seems to be the only customer of the Heading() function, and only calls that function in one place.

Fix is checked in here:

Initial problem is confirmed as fixed.

An additional issue still remains un-resolved and that is if the rotor is configured as a "South Stop" the guage is flopped and indicates that WEST is at the 90 degree position on the gauge. When you click in the Atlantic ocean, which should indicate 90 degrees on the gauge, although the indicator is pointing EAST, toward 90 degrees, the gauge is actually indicating EAST is at the 280 degree mark and WEST is at 90 degrees. This is just opposite of what it should be. The gauge should not be flopped when the "South" stop is configured.
