I have been waiting for a long while now for Garmin to sort (pun) this out. The Saved Courses list is in alphabetic order - better than random I guess. However on my Edge 800, the order was 'closest first' This makes a lot of sense, especially if you are on a trip comprising a number of courses, and you have quite a lot saved.
The Edge 820 displays Saved locations in the sensible order of closest first - it would be so nice if this could be (an option) for Saved courses too.
Unless of course (pun) I have missed how to achieve this?
