    Ha ha . My son will ask "Papa why did you stop at XXX what did you do there?"

    Recently when I was travelling from Goa to Chennai I got calls that happened many times when I was overtaking trucks and it disturbed me lot.
    One disadvantage is some time they will be against night driving and we cannot say "I am taking rest and will start next day" and still continuing to cover more miles;)

    Garmin device supports this too. You can save travelled routes as .gpx files.
    Satguide has an application called sattrax or so, specially for cargo and taxi companies to track their vehicles live.

    Does Nuvi 40LM support this? I haven't checked it.

    Yes it does. I dont remember the exact menu option. I will check. If you enable that option, all the routes you travel will be saved in the device. It is especially useful when you travel to unfamiliar locations. The device will show the route you took earlier.You can trust the track more than the road.

    With MMI, you can convert it to kml format and upload it to Google Maps too. Typing the kml link on the google maps search bar will trace the gps log on google maps itself.

    Guys,
    Have a basic question here. I got my Carpad 5 with the absolute edition. This is not identifying my present location. It shows some place in Delhi. How do I do the initial settings for this?
