B&G Zeus 2 and MARPA

Posting here as well.. Originally in the navigation forum....

Has anyone found a better way to acquire MARPA targets on a B&G Zeus 2 unit?

The way it seems you do it on my setup is to touch the radar return, touch the menu bar in the upper right corner of the screen, then, since the "radar options" is not in the first page of items, you need to scroll up the list to get to "radar options", then hit "finish acquire"...

By which time the boat in question has probably collided with you in the fog.

Not to mention the fact that if its cold and wet the touch screen doesn't always recognize your finger tips or does the wrong thing as you drag your hand across the screen.

It was a lot easier on my old Raymarine E120 with soft keys and cursor control.

Is there any way to set up "fast paths" in the Zeus interface? I find the documentation pretty bad. Both for troubleshooting and for things like this.
I've heard that the ZEUS 3 has some feature like this, but the manuals don't even tell you how to create a route, let alone set up fast paths. The Youtube videos are only marketing. Not useful at all.
