At any time in the simulation progress open the map mode to verify your progress. During a holding mission, use the help funtion to display the holding pattern entries should you have problems finding the right solution.
In addition to the possibility to show entry sectors you can use the map mode for orientation and to change the position of the plane. Fot that simply drag and drop the plane to the desired position. For getting a better overview use the pinch gesture to zoom in and out.
