SPGs don't have auto-targeting in the overhead view, but if I were you I'd recommend you stop use auto-aim altogeather. Manual aim is much more precise than auto-aim.

No but I can play with one hand unless they turn tracers back on.

The auto aim function would be next to useless in the overhead view, anyway...  With a few very rare exceptions, arty needs to aim AWAY from their target to make shots, not at them.  Auto aim just can't account for leading targets, guessing shots on invisible tanks, or aiming past a tank to account for shell ballistics.

And while it does work in normal view, it's something of a last resort - you're still better off making the shot manually if at all possible.

Auto targeting is fine in the tier 1 and 2 battles while you are learning.

After that I would recommend not using it at all.  You want to be hitting specific areas on the tanks, not just the middle like auto aim does.  Plus it is almost useless for moving targets.

SPG have no auto targeting in bird's eye view.
