Anyway to set default Course track color on map

Has anyone found a way to change the default track color of courses displayed on a map during navigation. My 1030 defaults to blue and IMHO does not provide the best contrast for identifying the course against the map.

I just upgraded from a 520 that has been in use for 2plus years and first the screen while smaller was brighter and offered better contrast. The 520 defaulted to purple which was a very unique and contrast color against the map.

Any ideas other that editing each course setting individually.

Thanks

  • Garmin tends to be fairly conservative about making changes to the software on the Edges. That might be one reason they don't allow people to change the color.

    Another reason not allow people to change the color is consistency and standardization. As it is, anybody can use any Garmin and know that the magenta line is the active route for navigation and that cyan is the recorded track. That's not a bad reason even if not everybody will agree with it (even if not everybody will agree).

    Anyway...

    The color for the active route for navigation is magenta (not purple). Typically, the Edges have two active routes: one is the track and the other is the calculated route. The track route has black borders (which makes it look purple).
