I'm guessing Where To? menu corresponds to Find - Points of Interest
menu in Etrex Legend. And church can be selected here via Manmade
Place submenu as 0x6404. Regarding 2c0b - the attractions (2cXX) seems
to end at 2c0a (past this point everything's listed as
Attraction-Other), so it seems that this section had been extended by
Garmin in some point in future.

Oh and yes, eTrex Legend is very very old model. Monochrome and 8 mb
of memory for your maps :-)
