First, you must turn on screenshots on the GPSMAP 66i. One thing to consider on the 66i is that it will turn back to “Off” after you power the device off, unlike the Mini 2 which will keep the setting until you change it.

Follow the steps in the screenshots below or watch the Short YouTube video below.
