This article will show you how to create a new waypoint or edit an existing one. Waypoints can mark your current location, or can be added anywhere on the map. They are helpful for planning and navigating.
You can also add a waypoint to search coordinates. Learn how here.
Note: You can create a waypoint while recording a Track and it will be linked to that Track. If the recording is paused, it will not link to the Track.
