5. Download the latest wnutrak application

6. Your tracklogs are saved under the Logs or Debug folder of your Nuvi drive. Start wNutrak. Point the input folder to the logs folder and select the location of the output

7. The output will be in GPX format which you can open with Mapsource.

For nuvi 2x5 with Software Version 5.10, tracklogs are saved under "debug" folder.

Do take note.

do you mean how to switch off the 1-sec track log when it is enabled on your nuvi? for my nuvi255W, there's a "stop recording" icon superimposed on the screen itself each time i enable 1-sec track log, simple touch this "stop recording" icon and your 1-sec track will be disabled.

hope this helps

Try as below,
- Relax.... you can slowly press as sequence (1), (2), (3) and (4).
You may also Press (1), then Slowly and romantically Say "I Love you",
after that Press (2), then Slowly and romantically Say "I Miss you",
After that Press (3), then Slowly and romantically Say "I want you",
After that Press (4) =====> Tracklog Appear :peace:

You know what bro johnTan is implying? Since that particular area is unmapped, you should track it, submit it here, so it will appear in the future map release. Try it...!

I used the 1 second logging feature for the first time in my nuvi 765 Sg / Mal just now. Will download it to mapsource once I am in the office next week. Anyway, I noticed two things.
1.) Once recording is activated, a camera icon appears on the top right hand side of the screen. Pressing it produces a camera clicking sound. Even when recording is stopped, the icon still appears. The only way to make it disappear is to switch off the nuvi. What is the function of this camera icon?

2.) Under the play log, the log name appears as date_ some numbers. In my case 20090822_041051. Under this, start date is shown as JAN-06-90. The start time looks right, at 12:11:06. how come my start date shows as 06 Jan 1990? Did I do something wrong or is it a bug?

Many thanks in advance for the members help. :)
