    The sensor type is set to capacitive, but they are connected to pins 20 and 21 as shown in the installation manual.
    These were not changed when I upgraded from the 4500.

    User-defined waypoints

    Any plans to add user defined waypoints? It would be great if we could
    add them by lat/long or by radial/distance. I didn't spot this feature in
    the AF-5000 user guide.
