I've been trying everything to make that shortcut as well, and I am falling way short as well.

I do have many pages of direct shortcuts to most of the different settings pages (each icon has a small wrench transposed over it in the lower right corner), and I can't even figure out how I got those on the screen!

Nearest I could get was to create a shortcut which switches to the Automotive Profile, and activates the Where To application. In the Where To app I had changed the order of the icons so that Fuel Services was second in the list order, so I didn't need to scroll.

The Shortcut was made into a Favorite, accessible through the Status Screen/Favorite Dashboard I get with a single Power Button push.

Not perfect, but it works.
The way it was done before v4.60 was to do the following:

Setup, Main Menu, (pick where you want it), ADD ITEM, Where To?, pick the POI category. But, they have changed the category list to the highest level so you can't get to the Fuel Services or Hospital or Food/Drink, etc. This is very disappointing. Time to write an email to the Montana Team and let them know that they didn't FIX anything by changing the level at which we could access Where To? categories for the Main Menu pages.

Added to the missing features list at the Montana Wiki.

perhaps someone with older firmware can make a bunch of these up and post the XML text - once we know the codes, we could still build them from scratch :)

EDIT:

The missing feature has been removed and rewritten into Feature Request #70.

My apologies for mis-understanding the real issue the first time.

The way it works is that you send me a PM with your request, and include your email address for the invite to be sent to.

That makes more sense, Dan. Once upon a time, this was possible, but no longer! Bummer. Engineering less flexibility into a product is never a good thing!

For the REAL GEEKS in this crowd...

Here's a start to the Montana Menu Page decode.

The following screenshot is what the subsequent code is referenced to:



The layout is 3x3 columns. The App position starts in the UpperLeft and flows down then move right and flows down, etc.



The interesting thing (to me anyway) is that the Drawer (if you still have one) is considered the "Main Menu"



Well, that should get you all started. Got to run...

Cheers,

Very interesting. But I'd be cautious in case something you change causes the Montana to brick itself... Hopefully changes like this would be cleared in a Master Reset, but I don't want to be the one to find that out.

Gotta run, as the saying goes.

Well DAMN , I knew it was real easy when I did it 6 months ago, and the little magnifying glass differentiates these from shortcuts. I still have the fuel services icon and it works fine,but I haven't done a master reset recently.

I assume it will dissapear as soon as I do.

MONTANA BETA, ARE YOU READING ME? CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

UPDATE: There isn't an issue. Seems that if you place the App Icon on a Menu Page or in your Favorites Dashboard, you won't see that App offered if you try an place it in the same area (page/dashboard).

Better to send an Feature Request to the Montana Team

Master Reset will not change your Profiles nor should future updates change these "App calls". All of the Montana Apps are defined in the "lookup tables" internal to the Montana code (that's how "lookup tables" work). Just because the Dev Team has changed the list of Apps they show us in this Where To? list does not change the previously defined Apps #'s. Hence, Fuel Services should always be #66 in the "lookup table". IF, they were to completely remove the App (feature) from the Montana then the App# would no longer work (or would call some other App) but that is really a poor way to do business with PND's so I don't think we'll see any of that (I hope not anyway).

Anyway, messing around with what # is called in a Profile really can't do much harm to the Montana. Just make sure you Backup all of your personal data (Profiles, Shortcuts, etc).

Cheers,

You mean the Profile. The code is shown in post #6217.

Yes, I will shortly post the Profile.

Does your Fuel Services Icon still have the magnifying glass, shortcut arrow, or neither?
