Blue line showing where I've been

 

Drivesmart 50 LMT
Must have changed something and don't know what but I now have a blue line on every road I've driven on. How do I remove this and stop it.

Thanks

Thank you. That was the line. All fixed.

Be aware, the 'bread crumbs' are still there, you've just hidden them from view.

It still shows where you've been.

I use the blue line all the time at work, remembering how to get into and out of a non mapped area, like a landfill or quarry I haven't been to before, is much easier when I can sort of follow the line.

However, it's not stored indefinitely, it keeps a certain amount then starts to rewrite that space in the memory if you use the GPS a lot. I use mine at least 8 hours a day.

The change happend as a result of your other topic about saving your wife's route. You probably turned on TripLog an MyTrends so you could see the route in BaseCamp. I keep Triplog off and MyTrends on, and every-now-and-then clear out the data.

Interesting. Wasn't aware of

Interesting. Wasn't aware of that.

I like the trip log

When the routing doesn't tell me to turn for a shortcut, it's nice to see it coming up. There's been a few times where my wife asks if i had the GPS on so she could go somewhere that i went earlier in the week.

But

Unfortunately if you have the trip log ON, your screen will be full of blue lines and especially in your immediate home vicinity.

I was thinking that's how it happened. I was trying so much, didn't realize what I had done.

It was turning into a real blue mess and couldn't see the roads marked on the screen.

All fixed now though

And..

It thinks you want to go to a previous place and will tell you how long it will take.. A nuisance except for some special conditions.

I agree - Nuisance

According to Garmin:
"Using the myTrends feature, your device predicts your destination based on your travel history, the day of the week and the time of day. After you have driven to a favourite location several times, the location may appear in the navigation bar on the map, along with the estimated time of travel and traffic information.

Your device will provide a predicted route which will display in the information bar at the top of the map screen. myTrends provides time of arrival and relevant traffic information in the information bar."

So unless you are a "creature of habit", it does become a nuisance.

I call it information overload, it's too much information poping up on the screen that diverts my attention.

Thanks for the head up

I did not know that.
