GPS "Track" Management

Have you noticed that trail on the map page that develops as you move in the backcountry?  That is the track. 

The GPS receiver function known as “Track” is an outstanding feature. Track information is displayed on the map page. The track is the historical record of the hiker’s path through the woods. As long as the receiver is powered on, the track provides a complete history of the journey. The track function must be activated to be used. On my Garmin 60 receiver, this is done by selecting the Main Menu, and then selecting an icon labeled “Tracks,” found in the upper left hand corner of the page.
