I think ULFL's point was that with his Zumo there isn't such a configuration
option, so while it does save track logs, he's not confident that they are
acceptable due to the potential that it is just snapping to road and as
such, copying the copywrited built in maps rather than saving tracks based
on the GPS recorded position... A nuvi could have this problem too if this
is not configurable...
