I have my button set the same way but I have never noticed this because I have never shut it off or used suspend while on a route to a cache.

Well this is convenient, I just set a go-to to a cache to test mine and the batteries died before I could shut it off myself.

So with new batteries installed, the cache selected is still there in the GoTo - I can see Distance to End etc, but if I press the large side button to see the details of that cache, it doesn't come up. What apppears is the list of ""All-Nearest...." caches.

The exact same as Peter.

I agree it is an annoying glitch, intentional or not.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

I have the large side button set for Geocaches Details. This first of all allows me to find the next nearest cache. After selecting the next nearest cache (or the one that I want) that side button then acts as a very handy way of accessing the details of the cache selected - Name; terrain/difficulty; size and then access to description; logs and hint.

However if I "Power OFF" or even "Suspend" the unit with that cache still selected and then start it up again, an odd thing occurs.

The cache selected is still there in the GoTo - I can see Distance to End etc, but if I press the large side button to see the details of that cache, it doesn't come up. What apppears is the list of ""All-Nearest...." caches.

Now why should that happen? Isthat intentional?

It is an annoying glitch from my point of view as I then have to re-select that cache and go to it again to get access to the details by using the handy side button.

I mentioned this to the Magellan rep. at a recent Mega Event and he religiously took down the details of this occurance, but haven't heard a word since.
