MAVProxy includes a few commands for managing waypoints. These can be entered via the command line or via the menu bar of the GUI console.
View the currently loaded waypoints on the autopilot.
Load a new set of waypoints from file.
wp load filename.txt
Save the set of current waypoints to file.
wp save filename.txt
Delete all waypoints from the autopilot. It is not recommended to do this during an AUTO mission.
wp load, except only a single specified waypoint is
wp update filename.txt 6
Move a specific waypoint to a new location. When entered, a new location can be selected on the map window. If a DTED map is available, the AGL height of the waypoint will be maintained. This requires the map module to be loaded.
wp move 6
Closes the loop on a mission, allowing the autopilot to repeat a mission.
Remove a specific waypoint from the mission.
wp remove 6
The specified waypoint as the current waypoint. The mission will be run from this waypoint onwards. If the autopilot is running in AUTO mode, it will go to this waypoint immediately.
wp set 6
Reverts the last waypoint change or edit. Only the last change made via the wp command can be undone.
