Garmin Streetpilot i5 question

Guys, I have a Streetpilot i5. I want to be able to ride to some point, tell it to remember that point, name it, then be able to navigate back to it. No reference to a street name, an intersection, or anything like that. Can I do that with the i5? I can't figure out how to do it.

OK, well, no answers from the institutional gurus, but for the benefit of anyone who wanted to do the same thing and couldn't figure it out (like me), Garmin answered my email and told me the trick: hold down the center scroll wheel for five seconds. Haven't tried it yet, but supposedly you get some sort of pop up menu or dialog box which allows you to save a location without referring to street names. Just "save where I am".
