My tracks download from mine no matter how large, several thousand is not uncommon.

Maybe you have the setting set to 500 on your actual unit, which is my guess.....mine's set at 10,000.

I'm very happy with mine, tough to find used, but expect to pay about $200 locally.

Harley Ride Planner!!

This is the best route planner I have found, free, online, fast, effective.

Pick a starting position, and then add waypoints, which are transferred to the device as Garmin "via points"....love it!...
