Hello, hope everybody is so fine!

So the thing is... I need to make an animation of a gps for a custom map and route (like google maps navigator or waze gps)... its seems simple but Ive tried everything.
I want my arrow to be followed by a camera from behind, exacly as it is in most comun gps apps.

This is the view Im looking for... my goal is to only animate the arrow and camera will follow automatically


Some ideas?

Could you not animate the arrow. Parent the camera to the arrow. Your Background and arrow should be 3d layers. Then, it'll appear as your arrow isn't moving, but instead the background will move. which is what a GPS does I think?
