User waypoints

Is there a way to build a user way-point off a VOR?  Example build a user way-point at the BNA/060/15.  (NASHVILLE VOR, 060 DEGREE RADIAL, FOR 15 MILES) and then be able to name that point.

Mike, any updates on having winds aloft or fuel prices adied to the program?

Re: User waypoints

Skypuppy, enter the waypoint as XXXYYYZZZ, where XXX is the VOR identifier, YYY is the radial off the VOR padded with zeros to as needed to make it 3 digits, and ZZZ is the distance in nautical miles padded with zeros in front to make it 3 digits.  Using your example, BNA/60 degree radial/15 nm is BNA060015.  Enter it in the plan page either as part of the original routing, or by tapping the preceding waypoint and selecting "Insert Waypoint(s) After" from the menu box.
