How To Switch In Ship
Whilst you are in your ship press “Down” on the directional pad. This will bring up a small options menu. Navigate to the left and find the “Utilities” menu, click to enter. Here you can scan for a trade outpost and also select “Switch Starship View” to change the perspective of your ship. For PC players, the button is X to open the menu.
