Saving route's, Garmin nuvi 760

Hi all,
I'm trying to figure out how to save a travelled route onto my nuvi 760.
I can name and save a start point as well as a finish point, but how do I save the actual route that I have travelled.
The start point and finish point are 900 meters apart, however, i have to visit 120 points in between, over and area of about 10 sq Km.
The only way I can this would work is by individually set each site as a waypoint and then load them in to a route.
I have the "trail" function enabled, which leaves the blue line from where i have been and I thought it would be as simple as just saving last route, but I cannot workout how.
Does the 760 has this function?

Hi I have the same unit, and I just save the tracks to my PC, in Mapsource and then save them in to a file . they only show on the unit as one track but when you download them they show up as individual tracks.
Cheers Des.

Just a quick follow up on DesF reply, Mapsource files also show time of day and speed as well.

As DesF has said but after you have the recorded track on the PC showing in Mapsource CN you could make a route over the track, save it then upload the route to the GPS unit ,
Also the list of separate tracks can be all joined together to make 1 long track,

Thanks for the tip, but i'm not running my GPS thru a lappy.
One of the previuos replys gave me a link detailing how to access a hidden menu which I will try tomorrrow.
The problem is I'm doing a lot back tracking and crisscrossing myself in sort of a grid pattern and really need to be able to follow the path shown to me, my 760 shows everywhere I'v been, some of the time on roads that aren't on a map.
I'm hoping that the hidden menu mentioned earlier will do just that.

The simple ideas are always the best!!
I tried the idea on the above link that was posted , but doesn't work on my nuvi.
Just switched it off and use it next when I need it and the trail will be still there, thanks mate.
