Hmm, weird. Doing what you suggested and mapping 'enter links mode' does work for me. It takes me straight to the chapter title that is in the hyperlink. BUT, I have no idea how to stay on that page. As soon as I press the 'next' button it takes me straight back to the links. Holding down the up button to see if that gets me out of 'enter links mode' takes me back to the links page, too.
I wonder if there is anyway around that. I guess I could take note of which page it sends me to and then manually go to that page. It would be nice if there was an easier once touch solution.
I'm on the previous firmware, by the way. It's working perfectly for me.
