downloaded Garmin MapSource mapping data that contains additional

Searching for a map item is simpliﬁed because the map database is
separated into groups, which are shown as icons on the Find Menu Page.
• When you access a Find group list, by default it will contain only
those items near your current location or the Panning Arrow (if active).
• To save effort in searching again for an item already found, you can
use the “Recent Finds” group, which contains a list of 50 last found
items of all categories.
The options menu for each map item group offers its own unique search
options such as “Find By Name,” “Find Nearest,” “Select Symbol” (for
Waypoints), “Change Reference” (by moving the map Panning Arrow to
a new location), “Nearest Containing” (a key word you enter) and “Select
Category” (for those groups such as Food and Drink, Lodging, etc.). Using
these options can effectively shorten your
