The general rule that most people use is to configure the GPS to only
record 1 track point per second. 700 points over 4km is a bit high
(average of roughly 1 track point per 5m, so if you were driving 50km/h
that would be roughly 3 track points a second) so I would look into
changing that setting a bit.
