Having a bit of a problem with my new 710 and I haven't been able to find any other references to this issue elsewhere. I was wondering if anyone else had encountered something similar and might know what's wrong.

After first getting the gps, I went on a few hikes and saved several tracks without any difficulty at all. Then, last week, things suddenly changed. When I have an active track up and running, everything seems to be working normally, but when I save the track, it doesn't record any of the details (distance, time, elevation, etc) even though it does save and display the actual route on the map.

This is really annoying because without the details of the track, it makes being able to review and compare trips impossible. The first few tracks I saved still show all of the details, it's just all the new tracks that I've tried saving since last week that show this behavior. Upgrading to the newest firmware didn't have any effect, though why this would have started happening spontaneously is beyond me.

Is there a setting that might have accidentally gotten changed which would turn off the recording of track details, or might this be the sign of something more serious? I'd appreciate any help that I could get on this.
