Waypoint is a waypoint manager that allows you to save and manage waypoints. Waypoints can be plotted on a map to access information about the waypoint or viewed in Google Maps to access directions, streetviews, or topographical map data if available.

Waypoint allows you to easily organize your location data by creating categories which specify the type of location data being stored. Three types of location data are supported, Waypoints, Routes, and Tracks. The type of location data choosen for each category will determine how the data is mapped and exported using the export to GPX feature.

Categories can be used to store your favorite fishing, boating, hunting, parking, or any other kind of location data you can think of.

Categories and Waypoints are all fully manageable: Create, Rename, Move waypoints between categories, and Delete.

Waypoint can also notify you when you are within a certain distance of your waypoint by enabling the Proximity Alert feature. With the proximity alert enabled you will receive a system notification indicating your are within the set proximity of your waypoint. This feature can be set in the Edit Notifications menu item.

    Take a few minutes to figure it out - and even the free app is great. The map is lurking in the radar section IIRFC, once you can plot your waypoint on a map you're golden. My requirement was to mark a spot so I could find it back again including a spot on the lake. Google Maps always wants to associate a street address with a location, so it's not good. This app WILL do this. I did note a bug t
