You can create a new waypoint by pressing the ‘+’ button on the bottom of the waypoints screen. Next you can enter a coordinate or an address. You can also do this via Menu > Search > Coordinate.
In this section it will be explained how you can create a waypoint directly from the map.
Creating waypoints on the map¶
By pressing long on the map a red circle will appear (the route planner needs to be closed). An example is shown in the figure below:
As long as you hold your finger on the map you can drag the circle to the desired location. If you release your finger the following screen will appear:
In this screen you can give the waypoint a title and a description.
If you are connected to the internet and you have enabled ‘Adresses - Find automatically’ in the settings, an automatic suggestion for the waypoint title will appear. This title has a light grey color and will be used if no title has been entered. In the example of Fig. 2 the suggestion is ‘Dartmoor National Park’.
If we now enter ‘Geocache’ as a title and press ‘Save’ the waypoint will be saved on your device. The waypoint will be loaded on the map with the title as is illustrated in the figure below:
A waypoint that is created from the map will be stored on your device. Hence, this waypoint will appear in the waypoints screen.
