If you hunt you will find several threads on the subject.

Most (not all) hard core dirt riders on Dual Sport bikes only use tracks. They just follow the track. In dirt, you must follow an existing route and when you come to an intersection, you look at GPS to see what to do. Also check it every once in a while to see if you have missed a turn. You do not need navagation prompts to follow dirt roads.

Routes have the problem when you download to a 60/76 and then navagate it, it does an autoroute again. If you miss a turn it will autoroute you again.

A Track is a line on the map that NEVER changes.

Routes are great on highways with prompts with street names, etc. Use them all the time in my motorhome but never on my dirt bike.
