Hidder raw data logger has been found on nüvi® 2x5, 5x0 and 7xx series.

To activate, select Tools -> Where am I...

Click in the following order on:
Nearest Junction
Nearest Address
Nearest Address
Nearest Junction

Then you will see this screen. My screenshot is grey out because I'm in-door and don't have a fix.

For nuvi 1xxx series, read this.

Yes... Including 7xx series... I have updated the subject accordingly...

Some of the models require modding of firmware... But 2x5, 5x0 and 7xx series no need...

60Csx vs Nuvi Raw - 4m
60Csx vs Nuvi Tracklog - 15m
60Csx vs Race Chrono - 13m
Nuvi Raw vs Nuvi Track log - 11m
Nuvi Raw vs Race Chrono - 9m
Nuvi Tracklog vs Race Chrono - 2m

compare your data, found Nuvi Raw is nearest to 60CSx tracklog. :good:
