The third mode in the Track Menu is Trackmark Mode. Trackmark mode is used for the management of Trackmarks and Triggers. These are used to assist in setting up the rules for a session, which allows you to design operations for your route. Click LMB on the Trackmark Mode (V) to change the Track Tab menu to the Trackmark Mode menu.
