Yes, go to the map screen, tap on your target cache, that will bring up a small window - tap on that to bring up the cache page. Then you can just go back to the dashboard after reading the description or whatever.

That seems to be the easiest way that I've found.
(You will have to zoom in a bit to see and tap the target cache.)

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

Now that I have been using my 710 for a few weeks I have decided that I like to geocache using the dashboard screen with the compass at the top and 5 fields with "distance to end", elevation, etc. It is really accurate!! But, if I want to read the cache description again I have to click back 2 screens, click to open main menu, click in left corner, click on geocache, click on the closest cache, and then on the description.

Has anyone discovered an easier way to bring up the cache description screen while in the dashboard mode??
