When I route to new destination, screen sticks on prior destination for some time. Eventually it will re-calculate. Seems as those of options "Least use of freeways, etc." don't work properly. Will it help to upgrade new maps?

Re: Does not clear prior destination
This seems to be just a software problem, re-installing the software should fix it. Before that though, try resetting user data. At user menu, press "-" zoom out and repeat button at same time. select reset user data, it will reboot automatically, then check to see if it is any better. If not, hopefully the software came with your unit and you can re-install it. Good luck and let me know if you need help with the installation.

It means that no roads/routes exist to drive to the destination you inputted, sorry just the messenger. Is your map software up to date, if not update it, that may be the issue.. I update mine every 4 or so months.
Adding a Waypoint is not to difficult. You would first of all choose Where To? on the main menu, and then input your main destination. Once the GPS unit has finished calculating your route and ask you to follow the given route, you would then go back to the Main Menu screen and choose Where To? again. You would then input the Waypoint using Favorites, or whichever method you prefer to use. Once the GPS has accepted the destination, and it displays the screen with the large GO button, you would press GO. The next screen should ask you if you want to add this location a a New Destination, or to Add as a Via Point. You would then choose Via Point.
There are settings in the GPS that allow you to pick what type of routes you want to have the unit pick for you. They can be based on time, distance, or least fuel used. You can also do the following: if you know at least part of the route to your destination, and the GPS doesn't pick the particular way you prefer you can just start driving off route. The GPS will realize that you are off route and it will recalculate itself. You can also add "Way Points" to your route that would force the GPS to calculate the route to the way you want it to go.
