Boah. That's pretty strange. Sorry for the noise. ;-)

You did bring up an interesting thing though -- I just DID try to lock the screen and that option is no longer there. UGH, I'll restore default and see if it was something that happened when I had it plugged in and updated.

A workaround:

Choose Settings > System > Mode >
> Select between “Activity” (standard setting) and “Classic” (our preferred mode). In the classic mode you can not choose between the different activities directly after the start up procedure. The interface is similar to the Oregon 6x0 when choosing the activity mode and you do not get the annoying pop-up for starting the track log!

Thanks, I'll try it. So strange that it just randomly started doing that. I've had this since December and it's not done it previously.

I just bought a 700 as a replacement for my aging 62S and I'm getting the popup "Start" thing too. I've switched it to Classic mode and yes, that's fixed it, but it still seems odd to have to do that.
