I found out the hard way that the H20C tracks only contain a lat/long coordinate and none of the other information found in a typical track file.

Sorry the data is still limited, like this..........
1 26 ft 79 true N38.79978 W119.25686
2 56 ft 87 true N38.79979 W119.25677
3 34 ft 63 true N38.79980 W119.25657
4 52 ft 63 true N38.79984 W119.25646
5 29 ft 80 true N38.79990 W119.25630
6 24 ft 49 true N38.79992 W119.25620
7 37 ft 12 true N38.79996 W119.25614
8 40 ft 320 true N38.80006 W119.25611

But with the 300 + miles I have logged over the past couple days on a bunch of my favorite single track the tracks were spot on , so far they seem to be much more accurate than the H20c, not the deviation seen on my H20c.
I have not found a way to change the track parameters either, but that never seems to be a problem with it's ability to save full resolution files. I know that the Garmin can save to the card also but try loading your saved full resolution tracks back in.
This unit seems to be very tough as it survived my crash today, the usb power connector bent but the XOG survived and it is great to have a bigger screen with both street and topo data on my dirt bike.
It would be nice if it did have more Track data , but I use my PN-20 for data logging as it has all that data + and it is very nice to have, When I lay out my Dual sport rides I use a couple of GPS's and the Delorme is the best data recorder I have found.
