Dakota Waypoints

I've recently moved from A Garmin Legend to a Dakota 10 as I was keen to do paperless caching. In general its a great little gadget BUT I'm having difficulty navigating to Waypoints associated with a cache and can't find any relevant info on forums etc..

It goes like this:

The Dak is set to Geocaching profile and has latest OS.

I've navigated to the published coordinates of a puzzle cache (say GC123) which requires some questions to be decoded to give the next Waypoint. This is then entered in to the Dakota as (say)WP 001.

I then use the touch screen to navigate to 001 as follows:

Where to-Waypoints-001-(it then shows map with 001 pinned) but if I then press GO the map reverts to pointing at GC123 and I can't use the compass to navigate to 001.

 

What I want is to use the compass to navigate to 001. As it is I have an idea of the distance to 001 but no indication of direction.

No one else seems to have identified this as a problem so I assume its me thats dumb??

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
