I have asked before , hope something has changed

When I want to anchor on waypoint 157 , I have to scroll down to that number.. In waypoint management , you can set it to
display by nearest, This only works in waypoint management, not on the anchor function screen. It would be a great help if that feature worked on the anchor function.

When the screen gets hot , it gets real touchy . trying to scroll down get you a lot of false engagements.
I will really not like this in the future when I get over 200 waypoints , ( getting close to that number not )

If you have your autopilot features displayed on the screen, zoom out so you can see the waypoint you want to navigate and anchor at and move the cursor to it and hit enter. It should bring up a display to do autopilot features. Touch the icon of the waypoint and then tell the autopilot what you want to do, “anchor at waypoint”.

you can have it in map view, and then touch the waypoint. once it's highlighted, go to the right menu and "goto waypoint"


One 10-pounder is better than ten 1-pounders; but 100 1-pounders is ok too!

Dumb me. , I figured out you can use the down arrow to scroll to the desired way point.
Easier than the finicky touch screen. ,
I tried the auto pilot. , it went to the spot, but just kept on going. Didn’t anchor.

Thanks everyone

To resolve this problem, there's a setting in the HDS that tells the unit what to do when it gets to the desired waypoint: anchor, or not anchor. I set mine to "anchor"
