Visible waypoints on the map page are displayed with symbol and name if you did not edit the relevant settings in the data base. With a click on the waypoint you get to a menu with the following options:

Info_[Name_of_WPT] Brings you fast to the relevant element in the data base in order to edit it.
Hide Removes the waypoint from the map. To make it visible again you have to display it via the data base.
Navi_Goal Starts quick a navigation to the relevant waypoint, see Navigation.
