I've read the manual twice, and watched programming guide videos on youtube, but while I can program hotkey 1-6 just fine, I can't find how to actually trigger them.

I found how to trigger the "Fun key+N" keys, also mentioned in the manual. The green key appears to have the name "Func", even though I can't find that actually in any manual. You long press the green key, and then can trigger 0-9, and * and #.

But what about the "Hotkeys"? How do I trigger them?

On my brand new 878, a long-press of the Menu key acts as the 'Function' button (not sure that's in the manual anywhere, either). The Green key (PF3) is assignable as all the other keys are, but it's not the 'Function' key in my radio.

From what I remember, after you program the Hot Keys, you then need to apply them to an actual key (PF1, PF2, PF3, P1, P2) to access them. Basically they are like functions that you can define (things that are not otherwise available for key assignment).

If you look at the options that are available for, let's say the PF2 key, Hot Keys 1-6 should be available as options to select. So Program Hot Key 1 to access the SMS menu, then apply that to PF2 and now PF2 will open the SMS menu for you.
