As for the naming, this could be done easily if it were a dedicated Multi-cache programming routine. Just add the "Stage #" to the cache name for each of the additional waypoints. The # could be easily automated starting with 2. Although, I recently ran into one which had a phony stage 3 which said to go back and find the correct information(which was missing of course) at stage 2. Arrrgghh!!

Well, red herrings and devious clues can't be helped by the GPSr, but they are fun after you find the cache and talk to your buddies that are still searching. 😛

This would be a handy feature for multi's.

Dose not require all the bells and whistles. Just the ability to change the coordinates and then hit Go.

I would like to see an easier way to create a waypoint for multi-caches.

Maybe a separate geocaching multi-cache function?
It could eliminate the choices we don't need, like go straight to alter coordinates then a 'go-to' to tap when done entering coordinates.
I don't care what it's named or what icon is on the map, I just want to enter the coordinatess with the least effort.
