What are your buttons 1-8 set for?

Saw someone over at the F30/F32 post about this and just out of curiosity was wondering what others have their set for. Here are mine

1. Messages
2. Map day mode on/off
3. Set map to 1 mile above
4. Set map to 800 ft above
5. screen off
6. home navigation
7. parents home navigation
8. uncle's home navigation

Some people never learn. It should be 1) Wife, 2)Best Friend 3) Girlfriend, 4) Attorney...etc. Mix it up, mix it up. It's so easy to make a mistake.

and it is nearer to me than the 8 shortcut buttons for which i have to lean forward.
so here goes..

Hi i know this might sounds stupid, but i just got my F10 not too long ago and i thought the 1-8 buttons can only be set to radio stations. How do you guys set like wife's number and Home location to it? thanks in advance!

It's been a while since I set mine, but if I remember, just navigate to the screen you want to save, choose a button to use, then press and hold the button until it saves your screen position. BTW, if you just lightly touch a button (don't press it), the screen will show you what the button is assigned to. It's all in the manual.
