Navigating to Phone Book Contacts?

I have read the Boom! Box Owner's Manual for my 2016 Road Glide Special. I mostly use the GPS after I've been out on the road for several hours and just want to get back home. Seldom I have used it to find a location because I usually don't have the address entered before I start my trip and I'm not fond of the interface to enter the address directly onto the GPS, especially while I'm sitting on the side of the road. When I found the feature that I can route to a phone book contact, I thought this would work well for me. I perceive it as easier to enter in contacts to my phone with an address while in Outlook than on the GPS.

However, when I select Navigation, Where To, and then Phone Book I have to scroll past way too many of my contacts that I only have their phone number saved. Is there a setting that I'm missing? Am I the only one who thinks that if I'm navigating to phone book contacts that I should only see those contacts which contain addresses?

2016 RGS Black Quartz

Would be nice if that was available. I don't see MoCo being smart enough to get that feature figured out and installed by whomever their designs their software though.

I'll say this about that feature, to me it's most useful to find a business you need to get to. Let's say you need to get to a Honda dealership, you type in the phone number and the address will search and then pop up to navigate to. Im not sure it will work with home addresses obviously since everyone has cell phones .

I don't synch my phone to the GPS. I always have the GPS screen up, but I mostly use it to display the streets so I can read the name of an upcoming street before I am upon it. I also display my speed so I don't have to look down at the analog speedo, and the Temp because I go through so many temperature changes when I ride.


While in Colorado I switched the speed display to elevation.
