Default You have a great unit

Give Rob a call at AFS and explain what you are trying to do --- he will talk you through it, as he has me, several times!

Their number at AFS --- 1-503-263-0037

Have a great Christmas holiday!

Ron

Pretty simple, push FLTPLN button and use the joystick to select waypoint.

If you are talking about flying to a waypoint fix or airport you can do that through internal flight plan (pg 99). If you are talking about creating a waypoint as in a random gps coordinate I donít think thatís available yet but could be wrong. Once you activate the int FltPlan your gps if interfaced will follow.
