H-Bird.. 88 feet away???

7 posts in this topic

Ok, so fishing yesterday.. On my bird units.. My boat icon, and the trail it leaves were according to the unit 88 feet apart?.. I am going to call bird some day this week.. has any body else had this issue?

the really hard thing is.. do I pay attention to the "track" or the "boat icon"?

It doesn't do it all the time but once in a while they go their own way but eventually they come back again.

I haven't nuked my track memory yet but I will after the season is over.

You may have your track points set to automatically toss them out every 88 feet (this is a adjustable user field in the options)? This over time will eat up internal memory and fill up your track memory log, and oldest track points may be deleted automatically to insure the new points are maintained.

You can select the tracks to place points automatically by time, or by distance, or manually.

The time option will set more close proximity points depending on the time set, distance may also do this...both if set close together will eat up memory rather quickly.

As was mentioned previously periodically clearing your old tracks/trails will help this out. And then you may determine how often you wish track points to be set as to best refine your trails and routs.

Back up tracks to a chip that you wish to save, and than zap them out of the memory. This helps to limit confusion for you on tracks/trails/routes and will enhance performance of the unit.

Your waypoints will remain after you clear the tracks, just the bug trails will go away. Backing up your waypoints from time to time to a chip is smart, just to be safe.

I've had this happen, SimilarIsland is right.

Save your tracks if you want, then "clear current track".
