    Is anyone using Tracks rather than Routes on these?

    We just got back from an extended tour of Portugal (highly recommended) on a rental GS1250 that had the Nav V. After fiddling around with the GPS for the better part of a day, I could load a track but visually it was a very hard to see, just a thin line and (unlike my Montana) there was no "Go" command to follow the track.

    I've just bought a 1250GSA (expensive vacation that was) & am contemplating adding the Nav VI but if it handles tracks as poorly then I'm not interested. I downloaded the Garmin manual for the unit but all it talks about on the subject is recorded tracks, not loading and following one.

    So...what was I doing wrong? Can anyone share screenshots on Tracks within the VI?

    Here's my low-rent fix BTW, worked fine for 1,600KM!

    Well I guess my question is answered!

    Y'all just follow the Garmin calculated route to the closest donut shop & call it a day.
