I sometimes wonder if even a Mensa could really understand the byzantine nature of Garmin's new devices. I sure as hell can't.
I couldn't agree more!

In BC, If you right click on a via point in a route's property window, a drop down list will appear that will allow you to change its property to ‘Alert On Arrival’ or ‘Don’t Alert on Arrival (Shaping Point)’. Not all gps support non announcement of shaping points. It would appear that the Montana doesn't. and thus treats them as way-points, The 62s doesn't as well, but I think some Nuvi's do. That's why you see the Blue Flags when the route loads.

I feel like I've beat this horse enough for one day.
