- To begin marking a waypoint, first tap the waypoint icon on the top of the screen.
- Next, decide what sort of waypoint is best for you. If you would like to mark a waypoint that is near you, so as to remember the spot you are currently at, tap "Drop Pin Near Me". If you would like to plan a future route using waypoints, tap "Create Route". If you want to simply mark a spot somewhere on the map, tap "Drop Pin". If you would like to mark your spot by taking a picture, tap "Take Picture".
- After you have placed your waypoint, a menu will appear allowing you to adjust the settings of your waypoint. You can change the name to help you to remember why you placed the waypoint. Also, you can adjust Latitude and Longitude to precisely place your waypoint. Then tap "Save" to keep the waypoint, "Cancel" if you've made a mistake, or "Save and Guide" if you would like Gaia GPS to guide you to the waypoint you are inserting.
Now your waypoint is saved in your saved waypoints list.
