A bit of experience is needed to guesstimate the course at about 130 deg (without seeing the map). I had trouble with this too and started using the sub buddy app which you can use to train yourself in the AOB. I now rarely have more then 5 deg difference from the real course.

BTW: don't use the perspective from the target. Just use your common geometric sense which you learn at school to estimate the angle from your own viewpoint.
Thank you for the info. I'll try to practice all methods recommended in this post.
