AFAI can see they should just keep adding to the existing trail so all the trails should be one till it starts overwriting or a new trail is started. I can have 4 or more trails in a day all with gaps between them and only the last one showing.
It also resets the trip mileage to zero so I lose total trip for the day each time.
Is there a fix or setting to sort this I can't find in the book?
my Lowrance 7200C does the same strange things. No idea why.
I extended actual track from default 2000 to maximum 9999 points. points are done by unit itself after some distance and/or time.
but after shutting off, sometime it begins from scratch, sometimes it adds it to the existing one. I could not find a matter.
I alreadyupgraded software version to 2.4.0, but di not change anything in this behaviour.
