Tracks
A track is a recording of the path of your boat. The track
currently being recorded is called the active track, and it can be
saved. You can save up to 50 tracks.
When you connect the trolling motor to a chartplotter, the active
track and saved tracks stored on the chartplotter are
synchronized with the active track and saved tracks stored on
the trolling motor. Adding, deleting, or editing active and saved
tracks on one device automatically changes the active and
saved tracks stored on the other device.
Saving the Active Track
The track currently being recorded is called the active track. You
can save the active track and navigate it later.
You can save up to 50 tracks on the trolling motor.
