Customizing 'where to' list on Oregon 450
 
I've looked around everywhere but can't find any information about how to customize the list under the "where to" menu.

Under "setup" I can customize the main menu icons but I can't do the same to the "where to" list.

Right now when I click on "where to" the list is as follows:
Quote:

Recent finds
Photos
Tracks
Routes
Coordinates
Then I have to scroll down to get more options. While riding I'd like to minimize the amount of click to find what I usually use. So I'd like to customize those first five options to:
Quote:

Recent finds
All POIs
Routes
Fuel Services
Lodging
which are much more useful to me while I'm on the bike.

Anybody know how I can do this?

No idea if you can or not, but there's something to be said for posting in the big existing threads on the Oregon line instead of creating a new thread with your question. If you ask in the main threads, those who are subscribed get an email with your question, meaning you're much more likely to get a response.

Just saying...

Just checked on my wife's 550 and it doesn't look like it's possible from any of the menus including Setup.

It's probably no consolation, but you can change the Where To list order on the Montana.

And also on the 62/78 line.

Maybe a software update on your Oregon will allow it? Not sure which version my wife's 550 is at, but she doesn't tend to upgrade unless I talk her into it, and I haven't done that in a while now.

What version are you on? Might be worth running WebUpdater to see if there's an update available.

I ran the web updater and it tells me I have the most up to date version. I checked and I've got version 6.2

Yeah, looks like the Oregon doesn't have that capability. I updated my wife's 550 yesterday and noticed the same. Odd that the 62/78 and Montana have it but not the Oregon line. Maybe you should complain to Garmin.

well, if this unit(which costs half) had everything the Montana has not many would be buying the Montana. :lol3

Overall I'm very pleased with this unit. I primarily use my GPS off road so out on the trail this isn't an issue. It's a lot better on the bars than my Zumo was, I'll tell ya that. As much as I loved that GPS it was just too bulky for riding the trails. The Oregon is just right.

Thanks for your help.

Yeah, it seems like it's not possible yet...

The Montana's bigger screen, Landscape/Portrait modes and better power options makes it a clear winner though the Oregon has a beautiful and sharp display. But it's so small that IMHO it's better as a handheld unit.

My wife has one of each, the Montana 650 and Oregon 550, and likes each one as much as the other, but for different reasons. I have the 62S and the Montana 650, but I'd trade the 62 for an Oregon any day.
