    I have a large TRACK file (3500 points) that I successfully brought into BaseCamp. I can send it to the DriveSmart61 device Internal Storage - I have verified that the GPX file is there. However when I go to the DriveSmart I can not see the TRACK as a saved file in the Trip Planner.

    The use case I am trying to address is a utility that drives by to collect meter reads. The drive is repeated monthly and each day covers a different segment of our customer base. As we train new meter readers we need to provide a way to help them be productive out of the gate without having to shadow the experienced meter reader to learn the path to follow.

    How do I get the DriveSmart61 to see and display the TRACK as a navigation tool for the driver?

    On satnavs Trip Planner usually stores Routes rather than Tracks, if Tracks are displayed at all they will be accessible under the 'Where I Have Been' option and are sorted by date (which is not always saved in a Track)
