Garmin/Zumo550 question
« on: April 03, 2011, 09:59:52 am »
 OK here's the deal. I love my Zumo 550 but it does have one little idiosyncrasy that annoys me. When following a route I have programed in. If I come across a road that is part of another route stored in the GPS, it shows them both, or more than the two if there's more. It can make it confusing when it happens. You really have to pay close attention to the written words, voice and such then.
 Has anybody else noticed this, or is this just a 550 idiosyncrasy? Or do other Gamin's do this as well?

Are you using the tracking option? You know the option that leaves a track of your pass route. If so, all you have to do is turn the tracking off and the lines will go away.

OK, I can't find the tracking option. Any idea where it is? I think I've looked everywhere except where it is. I may have to dig out the manual disc and hunt!
