Sorry illustratedman, but I disagree. The waypoint should save as an exact position and I can't see what the 2610 settings have to do with it. I've set hundreds of waypoints nowhere near roads.
bolla, the waypoint position is set when you hold down the page button, not when you press OK. So if you have moved in the meantime, the waypoint will be back where you first pressed the page button.
The next time you try this, have a look at the GPS status screen (menu, info, GPS) and check how many satellites the unit can see, and the accuracy.
"For sheer delight there is nothing like altitude; it gives one the thrill of adventure
and enlarges the world in which you live,"
