Default Garmin 430 rquestion- does the approach always have to be activated via "activate approach"?

So you are f lying along, direct KABC. You have loaded an approach and
selected an IAF. How do you expect the box to know when to switch from
having the TO Waypoint being the airport to having it be the IAF?

Activating a loaded approach is really a trivial action. PROC, ENTER. Not
exactly programming.

The point is this- loading the approach makes the IAF the active
waypoint, which I may or may not want.
