Interesting indeed...

http://www.geobuddy.com/gps-receivers/Garmin-nuvi-760.asp lists the active
tracklog capacity as 99999 track points...
http://www.travelbygps.com/articles/nuvi_760.php mentions that only the 700
series get track logging, which seems to be confirmed by

What sort of control do you have over the tracklogging with the 760? If it
allows 1 point per second, then 99999 track points works out at 27hours,
better than the 10000 limit of the active tracklog in the handheld units
which works out at 2hrs 46, but, the ones with external storage do allow for
as many points as will fit on the flash card...

Still, expensive...
