Setup your GPS

Virtually all Garmin hand held GPS receivers will record your track and lately most Nuvi automotive GPS receivers will also record tracks. A Garmin GPS is not required to record tracks.


The following screenshots will give you examples of how to setup your Garmin GPS to turn on track record. In the case of track recording Nuvi's, those that record tracks are always doing so and you are simply showing or hiding the recorded track.

* Most Nuvi's record tracks all the time and save to internal memory. Show/Hide simply shows/hides the recorded track.
