Hope this helps someone else with a similar problem.
I'm glad it worked. I wonder if we need a B&G/Navico ongoing support thread. The manuals
are only partial answers to a lot of routine questions that come up and the combined NMEA2000 and NMEA0183 networking gives me a headache.
For example, I decided that I wanted to turn off my AIS
transmissions while I was sitting on the mooring
loading waypoints and, generally, just figuring things out. I knew it could be done, because the tech showed me the screen
on Friday. Where is the screen
? Good question. Check the manual. No joy. Start exploring menus. Not much luck until, finally, I found it by going into the device menus. Sheesh!
So, my question in lieu of a virtual beer
: Can you copy routes into new routes and then rename them? I do this in iNavX
since the first dozen waypoints are the same on my way to pretty much anywhere. It's nice to have them as part of the route
if I have to travel at night or in fog
. However, I couldn't figure out a way to reuse the common waypoints across routes. Inserting the waypoints one at a time is supremely inelegant.
