I learned about the hidden track logging feature on my 255W yesterday and now have a question...

Once I activate the logging feature a camera icon pops up in the upper right hand corner. Pressing it results in a shutter sound. I've never seen the camera icon before and have no idea what it's doing when I press it.

Can someone fill me in?

Thanks!

Welcome to our forum VACaver.

Actually the camera icon has nothing to do with turning on the logging feature. That icon indicates that you have turned on the "screenshot" function. When active, every time you press the icon you will hear the "shutter" sound and a bitmap (.bmp) file will be saved to your Nuvi. The file will be a picture of whatever screen you were on when you pressed the icon. The file created is stored in the screenshot folder on the Nuvi. This function is turned on or off through Tools - Settings - Display - Screen Shot.

You don't mention what model of Nuvi you have but the models I have used always turn this feature off when the unit is powered down. Are you saying that the screenshot icon remains on the screen after you turn the device off and then back on again?

On the nuvi 7x5 series (maybe others?) if you turn on the hidden track log feature using the "bottom-top-top-bottom" screen presses on the location screen, it turns on the screen shot feature for some reason. You have to go into the Tools-Display menu to turn it off.

Interesting. I wish that was the case with the 7x0 and 1xxx as every time I need to take a screen shot the darn things turned off :-)
