User waypoints

In an HTML gauge, from javascript, you can add a waypoint to the flight plan only by its icao ident. There is no way to add a waypoint from coordinates (user waypoint).
The functionality exists in the sim because you can set a user waypoint from the game map.
Is this something we could get soon or is there any hidden way to do that?

You can easily create your own user waypoints within our own XML file in a mod without any restrictions. You only have to use a unique name (icao code) for it. It's part of the airport definition. So take a close airport and define your user waypoints inside. You don't have to make any changes to the airport and don't delete any data. Only use the required data and repeat them in your airport.xml file. You can collect stock airport data by using ADE for MSFS2020 that you can find on the fsdeveloper.com page.

It sounds like you're describing permanent addition to sim navdata, defined at package creation? I think what's being requested here is the ability for the pilot to create custom waypoints on-the-fly, usually on the aircraft's FMS.
