Garmin Colorado 300 - distance between two waypoints?

Basically, my question is simple but I cannot figure out how to do this. We have a Garmin Colorado 300 GPS with latest software. Now there are dozens of waypoints and cache locations stored in the memory. The question is: how do I make the GPS show a distance between two points???

 

This could be very useful, for example when planning a trip to a new place. How far is the cache X from my hotel? What is the distance between those two caches that are hidden in places A and B in another city? I've tried the Waypoint Manager and Route Planner but they make me even more confused. :anibad: The GPS seems to involve the "home" location in every search or calculation and I am not interested in how far any of the points are from home - I want their distance from each other. Help, anyone? :P

On some screens you will see a bulls-eye looking button at the bottom...you can use that to set a location you wish to search near, including coordinates, caches, or just a spot you pick from a map. I do believe it tells you the distance from the point you chose, not the distance from your current location. No need to go into demo mode or alter your location.

A button at the bottom of the screen? On a Colorado? Perhaps you're referring to an Oregon or some other GPS?

 

:P
