    It was a feature more for the RV's, but for Oil sites and construction it helps also.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Main Screen/Truck Tools/Timers, Mileage, Trails, Fuel/Trails Tab/New Trail/Hit the OK button, Now you are on the Map screen again.

    To the right and just to the left of the "+" and "-" you will see a blue square. This is your trails icon. Tap on that to stop recording the Trail (ok).

    Main Screen/Truck Tools/Timers, Mileage, Trails, Fuel/Trails Tab/Click on the Trail you want. You will see at the bottom of the screen, (show on map/edit name/set color/main menu)..

    Click on Edit Name if you wish to name this Trail.

    Click on Show on Map (should have a check now) and then Main Menu, then Go to Map. You should now see the "bread crumbs" of your trail.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Yeah as a matter of fact, especially if you have to out the same gate you came in- just follow your trail out. But be aware, many of these bases have one way in and another out. Hate these places, designed for buggy carts the lot of 'em in the 1700s!

    Would it be hard to add a button to show local radio stations as you're traveling? I sure could have use it today.

    I'd check out the POI factory and look for a POI file with that information and add it as a custom POI database to your device. Personally speaking I would have no use for such a feature since I stream either by XM- Sirius or from my phone and don't much worry about terrestrial radio stations. It wouldn't be a make or break issue but I wonder if it's worth compiling such a list.

    You can also compile a list by noting the stations you listen to and then going the to FCC website and researching the stations call (civil station information including location information is public domain). Their transmitter locations and business offices will be listed under the licensee call-sign for that station. Also but to sure since I have on real interest in doing this, The site- Radioreference.com may also have this information and I believe you do not a require a subscription to research call- signs.

    Shouldn't that be a Left turn in 100 ft. I was down to 100ft when i came to a stop and took the pic but it says straight as far back as 1/4 mile give or take.

    Three more low memory messages and then another application error just now while just trying to plan a 700 mile trip. I feel like this is not exactly the most productive product for team driving... I do NOT use the HOS or team driving features. .. if I did I bet id crash 5x as much. I feel like this specific gps has an issue with internal memory... not the 720 as a whole... just mine...
