its associated soft keys.
The available Waypoints are listed in the left hand column (alphanumeric); the
right hand column lists the waypoints in the New Route, the number indicates
its order in the route. The lower part of the table shows position, bearing and
range of the highlighted waypoint.
You use the trackpad left/right to move control between the two columns (the
highlighted title indicates the selected column) and the trackpad up/down to
scroll through the lists.
4. Select a waypoint from the Waypoint List then go to the New Route col-
umn and select a position in the list.

INSERT WAYPOINT soft key to place the waypoint below the
selected position in the Route. You can have up to 50 waypoints in a route.
6. To remove a waypoint from the New Route column, highlight the way-
point and press the
REMOVE WAYPOINT soft key.
Notes: (1)A waypoint cannot be used more than once in a route; those already

ENTER) to complete the route.
Note: The completed route is stored in the display unit and will be re-dis-
played if you turn the unit off then on again. However, on an integrated system
it is possible for a current route from another unit to overwrite this route; it is
therefore recommended that you save the route, as described in Saving the
Current Route on page 5-22.
