has anyone else thought it would be nice to create you own gps waypoints, or can this even be done?

Yes use the flight planner.

In The Learning Center, it shows how to make your own waypoints for the GPS but it's complicated and can't be done in flight.

Acutally, if you know the airport 4 character code (ex. KLAX), you can push the "DIRECT TO" button on the GPS (its the button that has a "D" with an arrow through it), input your airport code using the GPS arrow keys or dial and then hit the "ENTER" button on the GPS and you will now have a waypoint. The only downside is that so far I've found that you cannot set up multiple waypoints on the fly using this method, but I really haven't tried either... Don't forget to hit the curser button (CRSR) on the GPS prior to inputting your airport info or else it will kick you out into the main GPS window.

thats not what i meant, i know about the flight planner and have looked inside the learning center, by creating your own gps waypoint i was refering to adding in coordinates, like to an offshore oil platform, and having this come up as a waypoint on the gps

Go to Learning Center, Navigation, using Flt. planner, edit Flt. plan. Scroll down to [Creating custom waypoints in flight plan files]. It describes how to edit a flight plan file with a personnel waypoint defined by Lat/Long.
