Absolutely. Works like a charm in the four-button cradle. Just returned home yesterday after a 6,000-mile road trip and found the four buttons very useful. One caveat, I had my cradle hard-wired...

You could always use the search function in Basecamp to find the restaurant by name, or you could also do a search on the address. In both cases you can then create a waypoint.
