Getting additional cue sheet entries to be treated a a navigation event

I've been using TCX files on my Garmin 800 for a year without problem.  there are some peculiar defaults that need to be overwritten, but these are documented elsewhere.  The one thing I can't do is create a custom cue sheet entry and get the 800 to recognize it.  For example, if I'm doing an unfamiliar climb I might enter a "Summit" cue sheet entry, the the time/distance to next "turn" doesn't reflect the Summit, only the next turn.  I'd like a pop-up map with a count-down timer similar to what appears prior to a turn.   Is there any workaround for this or am I doing something wrong?  Or should I be using GPX Track?
