How to save options?

On my Pathaway GPS 5 on Windows mobile 6.1, I seem to have trouble saving certain options. I would prefer not to show the active track, but this is on every time I start the program and switch the GPS on.

I would also prefer not to get an alarm on proximity to a point, but this is also always switched on at start.

And finally, I have removed the check mark in "Show Text Menus", but it continues showing the text menus. I can, however, remove the corresponding check in the menu under View, and this works, but is also always on at start.

Hi, I tried all of these settings and they are retaining their settings for me when I exit and restart the program.

Are you exiting via the main menu "Exit" command?
I am using version 5.20

Strange.

Yes, I am exiting with the "Exit" command.

My version is 5.20.69.

We will probably have to leave this issue for the time being, until some new facts appear.

New facts have appeared :)

Apparently I do not have this particular problem any more! This weekend I opened PathAway again and routinely changed the options to my liking, but later, after having closed the program, as I wanted to do it again, the options had not got reset to the default!

I have no idea why this has happened, but I am pleased.

I did have some other problems concerning switching the GPS on and off which I might write about after a closer scrutiny. I wonder if something here made my problem go away?
