how do you get the red line to follow the arrow/cursor on a lowrance

I am thinking that is backwards :confused:

the red line is your track/path. you are the cursor and have to drive accordingly to keep on your track. :rolleyes: lol

ok so when we went testing the gps aquired position. then when we took off there was no track path...or red line showing where we went. in the past it would show a line of where you went. now its just the arrow moving. is this too vague?

You need go set it up to show the current track as active.

Now it makes sense, chase is right --- most Lowrances that are used off road have the same menu path to turn on and off the active trail
WARNING:
If you uncheck the Update Trail option, automatic trail
creation and recording will be turned off. You must turn
it back on to record trails. The default setting is on.
To select a Trail Update Option:
1. Press MENU|MENU, select MY TRAILS and press ENT.
2. Highlight the TRAIL OPTIONS button and press ENT. The Trail Options
menu will appear with three update criteria: Auto, Time and Distance.
NOTE:
The Update Active Trail checkbox should be checked (turned on). If
it is unchecked (turned off), your trails will not be updated. To turn
it on, highlight UPDATE ACTIVE TRAIL and press ENT.
3. Highlight the desired method for updating trails and press ENT. If
you choose Time or Distance as your update criteria, you can input the
desired update rate (Time) or desired Update Distance (Distance) in
the dialog box that appears at the bottom of the menu.
4. To input your Update Rate or Update Distance, highlight Update
Rate or Update Distance and press ENT. Use ↑ ↓ , ← → to input the
desired setting and press ENT.
5. Press EXIT repeatedly to return to the map display.

Just guessing that you are using one of the baja lowrances but I dont think that the menu path is any different for the non baja versions..
but you have to be careful, although the default is on, while racing you must make sure that the update active trail button is off otherwise you run the risk of overwriting the trail you are following...only a problem in very long races
