    Just noticed that as I was trying to figure out the dble. tap thing whenever I tapped the user key once it marked a waypoint as it should and I would cancel it. When I checked the waypoint mgr. I had numerous waypoints that never canceled when I pushed the cancel box. Is this normal?

    When I push the button twice(dble tap) it always goes back to the page I was on. For example, I have the power button set to go to the map page w/a dble tap. If I'm on the compass page and push the power button twice it goes status then back to compass page.

    You may need to tap the screen and then double tap. If the screen has gone to sleep the first of your double taps simply wakes the screen, and the next is therefore interpreted as a single tap.

    Are you saying to dble tap the screen or push the button twice. I assumed single or dble tap ment to push the power or user botton once/twice.

    Tap the screen to ensure it's awake, then double tap the power button. Least that's what I have to do on my Montana.

    It always goes back to the screen I was on, not the one I have it set for.

    I'm starting to wonder if my device is defective. The double tap feature just dose not work. If I have either the power or user button set to map or whatever and I am on lets say the compass page. if hit the button twice it blinks and stays right on the compass page.

    I read somewhere "page loop" disables the double tap. How do I check this to see if its on or off?

    Sorry, don't know anything about 'page loop' as I don't have your model. However it's mentioned on the wiki page here, and does say if it's set it disables double tap so ensure it isn't

    Called Tech Support this morning and we went through a number of steps including a master reset. Nothing worked so they are sending me a new one. The support person I talked to was very nice.
