SO how in goodness name do I input GPS coordinates ? The manula keeps talking about scrolling over to an area and clicking GO TO , but can't find anywhere to input coordinates..

I'm not familiar with the 740S, so I down loaded the manual and I can appreciate your situation. It looks like you can possibly use the procedure outlined on page 30. Take a look at the procedure for moving a saved waypoint. The last step in this procedure indicates there is an option to select and move a waypoint by entering coordinates. You may have to create an arbitrary waypoint, select it, and then edit to move it where you want it. Bluewaterpirate I'm sure knows the best way. I hope this post gets it bumped up for you and Tom will let you in on the secret.

Just bought the same GPS. From the navigation chart page look top right for menu tab. When you go to menu tab it will bring up a screen that says add way points touch it and a screen will come up with a number for that way point. Edit and give it a name and then enter your GPS coordinates and your done.

With my Garmin598 and my Raymarine, I just create a waypoint at my location and then edit it.
