Navigate to a Point of Interest
For POIs that are in view on the map, you can easily use the Navigate
to Cursor command above; just use the cursor to select the POI.
The other method involves searching for POIs with the Find Waypoint
command, launched with the
key. (See the searching example ear-
lier in this section, or turn to Sec. 6, Searching, for detailed instructions
on POI searches.)
After you have looked up an item with the Find Waypoint command,
use the → to make sure the
command is highlighted at the top of
the screen, then press
. The unit begins showing navigation infor-
mation to the item.
To cancel navigation, press
. The GlobalMap 3200 stops showing navigation information.
Creating and Saving a Trail
A trail, or plot trail, is a string of position points plotted by the unit as
you travel. It's a travel history, a record of the path you have taken.
Trails are useful for repeating a journey along the same track. They are
particularly handy when you are trying to retrace your trip and go back
the way you came. On the screen, trails are represented by a solid line
extending from the back of the current position arrow.
The GlobalMap 3200 is set at the factory to automatically create and
record a trail while the unit is turned on. The GlobalMap 3200 will con-
tinue recording the trail until the length reaches the maximum trail
point setting (default is 2,000, but the unit can record trails 9,999
points long). When the point limit is reached, the GlobalMap 3200 be-
gins recording the trail over itself.
By default, the trail flashes once a second, making it easier to see against
the background map. With the default auto setting, this unit creates a
trail by placing a dot (trail point) on the screen every time you change di-
rections. (The methods used for creating a trail and the trail update rate
can both be adjusted or even turned off. See Sec. 5 for Trail Options.)
To preserve a trail from point A to point B, you must "turn off" the trail
by making it inactive before heading to point C or even back to point A.
When the current trail is set inactive, the GlobalMap 3200 automati-
cally creates and begins recording a new trail.
