GPSr Units / Re: Help with Garmin 62st

I thought it was possible to create a route by creating waypoints from just the coordinates?
Is that too simple for Garmin?  The manual implies it can be done but like I said after I enter the
coordinates and hit Done I'm not prompted for entering the next waypoint as the manual leads me
to expect.

Let me know when you find some usefull maps for down there.  I am going to Tierra del Fuego
in February and the only topo maps I've found are 1:1,000,000 and expensive!  :-\

This is my first gps.  The UI is abysmal but manageable after a while, but only just.  
The topo maps vary considerably in accuracy and usefulness.  Many trails are shown as roads.
The user manual is virtually worthless.   I really doubt you will get 20 hours out of a set of batteries.  I haven't kept accurate records but I'm guessing more like 15.  The screen can be very
hard to see sometimes.  I admit is kind of a fun toy but I would return it except that my wife
won't accompany me on our upcoming trek in S America without it.

Does anybody know of an understandable user manual?  The Garmin is probably the most worthless manual I've ever seen. 
I try to create a route - enter coordinates - hit Done - and I'm returned to the map of my present location which is trying to navigate from Los Angeles to southern Argentina (the coordinates I entered).
