Garmin Etrex track issue

Postby NUKe » 25 Jan 2019, 11:22am

When I travel with my Garmin etrex 20 switched off, i.e. Travelling by car or other non-cycling method. Once the Garmin is switched back on it will draw the track back to the last place it was switched off and increment the mileage , Minor annoyance I know, but I am assuming this can be switched off anybody know how ?

Hi
Try "Setup>Tracks>Record Method" "Auto"
and "Setup>Tracks>Auto Archive" "Daily"
I can't see a specific setting, but this is how I set my Etrex 30.

I also "Setup>Reset>Clear Track and Trip Data" "Reset Both" before each ride. You can switch the Etrex off during a longer break, and back on, and it'll record a continuous route, which may be the cause of your issue
