Your device allows you to save a limited number of tracks. If you exceed these limits, there may not be enough memory for your current track recording. Archiving frees up memory for current track recording and stores archived tracks in a different location on your drive. The number of archived tracks you can store is limited only by the size of your drive. You can transfer archived tracks from your device to your computer for saving and viewing using the Garmin® BaseCamp™ application.
You can archive saved tracks manually. In addition, you can create archived tracks from the current track log on an automated schedule, or when the track log is full.
