    Hi,
    I'm fairly new to the Zumo 595LM and would like to know how to turn on tracking. I'd like to add, I'm not looking to share, etc. tracks through streaming.
    I created a route with waypoints in Basecamp for Mac using mapping for snowmobile trails. My snowmobile mapping software is compatible with both Basecamp and my Zumo. There are some area's that are off the trail along with off road. I would like to track the way I went for future use to add into a route I may create with waypoints in the future using Basecamp for Mac. I have a few questions;
    1) I can't find how to turn on tracking on the Zumo in order to upload it to Basecamp for Mac.
    2) Is it possible to just upload the track and/or just a portion of it in Basecamp?
    I would sincerely appreciate any help and/or tips on how to accomplish this. Thanks, Ray

    Turn on tracking with :-
    Settings . . Device . . Travel History

    View Tracks on Zumo with :-
    Apps > Where I've Been

    Upload Tracks to Basecamp with :-
    Copy Tracks from Zumo

    When Tracks are in Basecamp they can be edited, (delete parts etc.), tracks can be joined together, deleted etc.

    Thanks for the reply......... My App "Travel History" is checked. I went into the App "Where I've been" but, it doesn't show anything. The route I created in Basecamp and took is still on the Zumo. If the Zumo was tracking while I was traveling the route wouldn't it show a tracking line on the map as I go? I did read somewhere to turn on "Trip Log" under map layers. Thanks, Ray

    Yes, the 'Where I've been' Trips are usually selected by pointing to the appropriate date to show a history of past trips, the Settings >> Map & Vehicle >> Map Layers >> Trip Log >> [checked] enables the user to display the current Track being created before it is stored in the 'Where I've Been' log

    Edit
    It may be that a newly generated Track is only transfered to the 'Where I've been' area after the unit has been turned off and then back on again, not sure

    Thanks....... Right now I have no tracks on my Zumo. I'll check everything you recommended to do and check to see if it's tracking next time I go out. Thanks again for all your help. Ray
