Will a PN-60 Display Multiple Tracks Simultaneously?

I am seriously thinking about moving from my GPSMap 60CS to a DeLorme Earthmate PN-60 (see here). I have been reading the PN-60 User Manual online and it speaks of being able to open a Saved Track, as in only a single track. Is it possible to display multiple saved tracks simultaneously? Here is how I do things on my Garmin.

I build and manage all my tracks in DeLorme Topo. For Topo users--I manually draw in any sections that are not routeable, make a route for everything worth riding in an area, save it as a GPL Log File, convert it using GPSBabel to a 500 point track, and then load it with Mapsource into my GPS. For a number of reasons, it is not uncommon to for me to build separate, adjacent tracks and then load them all into my Garmin and have them all turned on, i.e. displaying at the same time. Am I going to be able to this a PN-60? Or am I not even thinking about this clearly?

Thanks,

Jay
