I am not quite sure what means this burst tracking. I know it exists also on our old Delorme devices, and also on the mini. What can I do with it?
Your title is not really the same as your question. Assuming you are on a byte-based plan, it becomes a trade-off between how accurate a track do you want to send and how much data you want to use so I don't think there is a good answer on how to use it efficiently. If you are asking what it is, the manual is a good place to start:
Sets the frequency at which the device records a track point and transmits it over the satellite network when you are moving.
Sets the frequency at which the device logs your location and updates the track line in memory.
Sets the device to start tracking when you turn on the device.
Sets the device to enter sleep mode between track points to maximize battery life. Sleep mode disables Bluetooth® wireless technology, detailed track lines, and message checking.
Sets the frequency at which the device records a track point and transmits it over the satellite network when you are not moving. This setting is only available for professional customers with a byte-based subscription plan.
When tracking, sets the device to create and send a detailed track line to provide the best approximation of your location. You can select the amount of data to use, and the device will create as many track points as possible. This setting is only available for professional customers with a byte-based subscription plan.
thanks, as I have no manual to our old Delorme devices, I can only experiment.
I am still not quite sure how to use this burst. The setting ist different amounts of bytes apparently. So what will happen if I have general setting for tracking every 20min and log to 5min. Is there some special advantage when I set it to burst? Is then the data amount less or what exactly is the aim?
