Touch the screen as to where your desired favorite is at ( Make sure arrow points to "Favourite" )
Select SET LOCATION
Select BACK and then MAIN SCREEN symbol to go to Main Screen
Select WHERE TO
Select DOWN ARROW

Yup, this way is working, but only have to drag along the map to search for the "Favorite" waypoint, is it any other short cut? But after all, it is working!

Yup, without any problem on Mapsource, only when the time on the run, then no choice, like what you said, have to feel the pain lah..

For 600 series,

1. Select your waypoint from favourite.
2. Click Go.
3. Tap on the screen once, to view map on Track Up view.
4. Scroll along the screen and toggle along the purple routing line to your destination (Your waypoint)
5. Select "Set Loc." over the waypoint.
6. Go under "My current location" to view the coordinates.

Here is the fast and short wy I use.
Everyone contribute a bit, eventually we can enjoy and benefit more in our navigation. :thumbsup:

Nüvi 880 not only tells you where to turn but listens to your spoken commands. With nüvi’s innovative speech recognition, you safely control nüvi’s interface with your voice — allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel. Simply press the button on the remote to activate speech recognition and begin speaking menu options. nüvi even recognizes shortcut phrases for popular functions. Tell nüvi "Find Address" and speak an address to start navigating.
