I'm with you Mitch. I looked all over as well and have resorted to just adding it as a new waypoint. Would love if they would integrate the ability to add new waypoints under the current Cache. Perhaps in a future release.

I don't do too many multi-caches so I am assuming I am missing something. I found the first stage and wanted to add a waypoint for the next stage. From multi-cache's menu there was indeed 'add waypoint' option, but it didn't prompt me to choose the type and instead just used current coordinates. I attempted to add it and was not able to. If you can't add waypoints as child waypoints of the multi-cache you lose a lot of things if you are forced to create a new non-child waypoint instead since 1) your trip odometer resets 2) you can't refer to the multi-cache's description/hints without looking it up again.

Please tell me I am missing something silly since this seems pretty darn basic feature for a 'geocaching' GPS.

If it is a current limitation the solution is trivial...simply don't assume that it is 'current location' waypoint, but instead prompt wit the screen where you get to choose like you can when you are adding a normal waypoint from the main menu.
