Editing routes in Legend HCx

It fascinates me to wonder how much more I do not know about my Legend whenever I hit upon something new, as I still do (I have had my Legend for nearly two years).

I was idly playing with a route in the map window recently. I discovered that a route leg changed from its default purple to a purple pecked line on white/outlined purple when the cursor arrow hovered over it. Not only that, but on that occasion (I have been unable to repeat it so far since*) 'ADD' appeared next to the arrow, and I found I was able to move the route leg from the point at which the arrow was situated (I believe).

I should dearly like to know to what use other enthusiasts put this facility, and are there other editing actions that can be carried out on the map display?

I purchased a very useful publication at the same time as my Legend, 'Getting to Grips with GPS', which I found excellent as a beginner. How it cries out for a comprehensive manual to be written, though.

when i bought my wife an ipod and saw nothing manual-wise in the box i went to the book store and found this book that i think is awesome, it's called 'ipod-the missing manual' and subtitled 'the book that should have been in the box'. now of course there are tons of different gpsr's and only a few ipods, but i wish there was one of these books for my gpsr.

This uses the map display to add a via point to the route. As you use the cursor to alter the route, press Menu once again to add to the route.
