- It would have taken an enormously long time.

You can put 20 tracks of 500 points each into the 60. So you could cover the ~3000 mile TAT with track points at about .3 mi interval. This would work fine nearly all the time. You can also put in lots (I don't know how many) of Direct Routes with up to 250 points each if you wanted closer track points.

(I normally navigate long trips with .25 miles between track points.)
