You have to manually enter the position.

It's possible to store a few positions but no way to copy the GPS 
position in to these settings.

For your static position i.e home, work you can use the GPS position
For the "waypoint/mark" you can use the GPS position
The object function should have the same but also possible to manually 
enter the position.

So Kenwood need to get the same function for the new and great object 
method in to the next firmware.
