How often is my GPS position recorded?

posted this on 9 Feb 2017

GPS Positions are recorded as markers when using the trail feature to record locations visited. A typical route can have several hundreds of these markers, which are laid down every second in Normal Power mode and every 4 seconds in Advanced Power mode. These markers appear on screen as a line of red dots showing your exact trail, otherwise known as a "snail trail" or "crumb trail". The dots can be changed to be large, small or hidden in order to unobscure the map or appear more visible. The dot size settings can be changed in the settings (by going to Screen Data Options, and then altering the Trail Marker Size).
