Selecting A Waypoint

Task not Active

With either the Final Glide or Moving Map screen active, tap the Calculator button or the Cse: field. This will activate the Waypoint List. The current active waypoint (if any) will be visible and selected. In the Waypoint List screen you can use its sort, scroll, search, etc. capabilities to locate a new waypoint. Finally tap the GO button and SP will return to either the Final Glide or Moving Map screen (depending where you came from) with the newly selected waypoint as the destination.

When you are the lucky owner of a Palm with a HiRes display, a command button Select Way will be visible below the Moving Map screen. Tapping this button has the same effect as the Calculator button.

If a Task is active when you perform this procedure, a warning dialog will popup:
