Waypoints From Garmin _VERIFIED_
Waypoints can be manually entered by taking coordinates from a map or other reference. Also, waypoints may be entered by marking a point at the current position of the device, or on the map of the device.
Waypoints From Garmin
waypoints are easier to add in garmin explore app or website (still need the app on your phone). Sync the 6x into a 6x collection. Then you can see the course on explore.garmin.com and you can add waypoints as needed. Course creation on explore is a bit of a mess, but waypoints work the way you'd expect.
my Basecamp 4.6.2 does not allow to transfer waypoints and routes (also no download from device). I do not want to upgrade to Bacecamp 4.7 as some features required for use of openstreemap will then be disabled. Is there any other tool?
I create waypoints with Garmin Explore and transfer them to my F6xPS - or I use sendpoints app for that ( for a single waypoint). I create courses/routes with maps 3D pro and transfer them to Explore and with Explore to my device. Unfortunately Explore itself can only create direct routes.

You can load your GPX file of waypoints with r.485 app on Android or iOS (see above, companion app)You can modify waypoints with the same app, or in parameters with Garmin Connect (iOS or Android), or with Garmin Express (on desktop). In this case, you must respect the format : \"Name;latitude;longitude\" Example : Key Biscayne;25.698;-80.146You can delete waypoint, or add current position as a waypoint on the watch. THE MENUThe menu gives access to:- Waypoints (follow, delete, add). The addition allows to add the current location, (the name can be modified in the parameters on your phone with Garmin Connect Mobile)- Set wind direction (if the value = -1, the wind screen is invisible)- Start or Stop Alarm Anchor : The distance can be modified in the settings on the watch. - Resetting the navigation infos (screen 3)- Exit the app- Settings, with :* color background Black\/white, * automatic start recording ON\/OFF when move, * automatic stop recording ON\/OFF when stop moving, * set distance for anchor alarm, * set distance for alert when reaching the waypoint, * display VMG or ETE in waypoint screenAUTOSTART AND AUTOSTOP FUNCTIONSThe autostart and autostop record parameters are useful to start or stop recording track automatically. If autostart is ON, the record start when, during 60 secondes, you have traveled an equivalent distance more than 0.5 nd. If autostop is ON, the record stop when, during 60 secondes, you have traveled an equivalent distance less than 0.5 nd. This is useful when you reach the harbour and don't want to record the track to go home in your car...Please give me 5 stars, or tell me what to improve, I could try toYour return is appreciatedThank you"; var appDescriptionMoreLabel = "More"; Sailing or yachting, cruise navigation with waypoints, MOB function, anchor alarm, maps, and your glycemia (if you have Xdrip or NightScout).You can upload your waypoints in a GPX file with R485 on your phone =com.connectiq.r485.mapsr485companionAll is free, but to remove screen where I ask a donation, you can send me a PayPal amount of 5 euros (or more :-) cliking on the link here : Please leave a comment in PayPal, with "SAILING" and I will send you a code (to enter in settings at bottom)

Mate, I have a regata tomorrow. Used your app last week and worked well. Problem is that even if I delete last week waypoints, they keep on appearing in my list. How to delete older waypoints for good?
In this video I'll show you how to use waypoints, tracks, and routes on your Garmin handheld GPS and (watch) wearable units. We'll plan and create them using Garmin Basecamp, and then work with them in the field on a Garmin GPS unit. I'll also share practical tips on when to use each entity on your outdoor adventure.
Waypoints are locations you create and store on the device. Waypoints can mark where you are, where you are going, or where you have been. When a waypoint is created or edited it will also appear on your MapShare page. Waypoints can be created using your inreach.garmin.com account or directly on your device.
(Full disclosure: Getting the map to display like this takes a little extra effort because you need to upload a track with waypoints. I will describe this process in a follow-up post, for now just assume you are creating those waypoints and want to export and share them with others.)
Once you have BaseCamp installed and your device connected, you see a list of the devices data in the lower left window. As you can see, the waypoints and the tracks are dissociated, which explains a bit why the waypoints do not show up in your exported activity data.
The next step is to select the waypoints and the track (most likely just one track) that you want to export. The window lets you control filtering/sorting a bit, which should make it a little easier to find all the items you need to select. Once you have selected all of them, you can choose "Show on Map" from the context menu and should get a good idea if you have indeed selected everything you wanted to select. 041b061a72
