Re: BVI chart/nav app

I have an Oregon 450 usage question.

Say I have a 5 point route for day 1. Lets say I want to jump into the route midway at point 3, skipping the 1st two waypoints of the route. Do I have to delete the 1st two waypoints, or when I get close to the 3rd point will the Oregon simply sense it's location and then resume to follow the remainder of the route?

I guess similarly, eg. a 7 point route. I start & complete the 1st two waypoints of the route but decide to skip a loop around an island (points 3 & 4), I want to go to point #5(and follow the route to completion) after reaching point #2. Can I start heading toward point #5 (would the Oregon see #5 when in close range to it & take you from there?) or do I have to delete points #3 & 4?

TIA
