Waypoint Free


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.

User reviews of Waypoint Free
Stay away from this app, I have been using computers of all types since 1984 and am an advanced user with a technology degree. Even I can't figure out how to use this thing. When plotting waypoints, expect them to actually not be plotted where you are pointing at either, don't be shocked if they are plotted the next town over. The UI is unnecessarily complicated, and you can't even look at a map until you are ready to plot your first waypoint, and when you put in the coordinates and put in save sometimes it will tell you it can't save until you put in the coordinates again, and when you put in the coordinates and put in save sometimes it will tell you it can't save until you put in the coordinates again, and when you put in the coordinates and put in save sometimes it will tell you it can't save until you put in the coordinates again, and when you put in the coordinates and put in save sometimes it will tell you it can't save until you put in the coordinates again, and when you put in the coordinates and put in save sometimes it will tell you it can't save until you put in the coordinates again, and when you... get the picture? One stare. This app is a joke.

Horrible I went hunting and set a waypoint for my vehicle I was half a mile away and I turned it on to see which direction I needed to go and it said I was 30 miles away and needed to turn around. Deleting this app

Great 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 the first time I used it, it was complaining the coordinates were required when I marked a spot, even though the coordinate values were already populated by the phones GPS. Issue went away with 2nd waypoint though, np. You could also use this for finding your car, if you're like me....
