Dashboard and Geocaching

Hi all, I just received my 710 yesterday and I'm still learning. I Switched from an Oregon to a 710.

I have not Been able to find any function which would allow the 710 to just jump from one nearest cache to the next.

The reason I would like this function is that I ride a motorcycle all around the country caching.

I use the dashboard with just the speed and current time showing. The Magellan 710 has that dashboard and it has the little geo guy in the picture above it with the compass. But it doesn't do anything unless you tell it which cache to go to.

How about adding an automatic feature to that dashboard page which would jump from one nearest cache to the next as one cache is passed by. This actually means I don't stop at every cache I come to so with the current configuration I would have to tell the gps to go on to another cache. It should automatically jump to the next cache after one is passed by.

The dashboard display could show the name of the cache, distance and compass direction. If that cache is passed, another should come up once in range.

Then, if the cache is in range and the user stops to get the cache, tap the cache name to bring up the cache details rather than going through the menus to get there.

Enough for now. Thanks.
