Regarding Waypoints use for marine purposes! [Garmin GPSMAP 276C GPS - 111680]

Hello, I actually have two questions. The first is whether or not I can use already created waypoints to create new routes or do I have to create new waypoints for every route I make. For example, if I always depart from the same place and I want to create a number of routes starting from that point, do I have to always create new waypoints for my starting point for every route I make or can I use just one that I have already created before. The reason is because I have a bunch of waypoints at the same spot and it's getting crowded on the screen. The second question is if there is a key or a set of commands that I can do to get the cursor or the screen (map) at my current location. The way I do it now is by scrolling on the map with the arrow key until I find the triangular icon denoting my actual location. It would be a lot easier if I could just press a couple keys and have the map pop at the exact location where I am located instead of having to search for it. Any help? I just bought this GPS but was not able to find this information on the manual. Thank you very much for your help. Jorge

If you have scrolled away from your current location in map view, pressing "QUIT" should return you to current location icon. Are you using automobile or powerboat mode?
