 How do I create, save, and activate a track on my eXplorist
Article As you travel, your eXploristâ„¢ automatically creates electronic breadcrumbs to record your movements. These breadcrumbs are temporary waypoints that are displayed on the map screen as dotted lines. The common term for these breadcrumbs is a "track". A trail takes the current track and saves it to memory. The following steps will show you how to create, save, and activate a trail on your eXplorist.
