PDOP

PDOP is discussed on this page and although there are links to other articles that give all kinds of information about what it is and what it means, there is no information given in lay terms that explains to a user where to find this number. I use a Garmin 60CSx which is arguably one of the more common GPS units in use for this purpose. Can't we tell a new user (such as myself) how to determine their PDOP value at any given moment?

Record the Track (point #7)

Perhaps I was overzealous in changing the information in point #7 on this page. However, it indicated that OSM couldn't handle POIs, areas, etc. Although, I am new to OSM, I have already worked with such things in OSM which indicates to me that this must no longer be the case. If I'm wrong, correct me. I certainly don't want to step on anyone's toes.
