Believe it or not I DID eventually figure it out shortly after posting the OM. What they don't tell you in the book, is that holding the "joystick" to the right for 5 seconds does two different things depending upon whether or not one of the items in the favorites list is white on black (HIGHLIGHTED) or they all are black on white (no item HIGHLIGHTED).
Other than that, the book is "somewhat" useful to get it all figured out. When you want to change a favorite item WITHIN the same category just push right for an instant. Doing this you can cycle thru all the possible selections WITHIN a category. To change categories altogether hold the five seconds. This is while ANY line on the display is highlighted. The new category will replace the one on the highlighted line in the display.
BUT...... if you hold right for 5 seconds while no line is highlighted, then you will go into the setup/maint/diag menu as shown in the manual.
Finally, if you want to go into setup/maint/diag mode but a line IS highlighted, just wait a few seconds and the highlight inverse will go away, so you can then hold right and get there.
Pushing left will exit to a higher menu and possibly offer you an chance to reset any "reset-able" item (like average mileage, for example).
With this info and a few minutes of tinkering, I believe most can get it configured. I happen to be retired from 38 years in the computer business and have a pretty analytic mind and this process is analogous to computer hacking (TRUE definition of hacking; hacking is NOT NECESSARILY evil as most would believe).
SO..... in keeping with my old profession, anyone whom this helps can feel free to send me the $50 (consulting fee)
