I was hoping I could use the custom waypoints to remind myself with things like "double check if this road should be marked private in openstreetmap." (That's the main reason I use my custom web app: it shows my strava route overlaid with openstreetmap layers for e.g. private roads, fixme tags, etc.)
I don't think the official Strava Android app shows the custom waypoints either: I choose a route before starting recording a run, and the waypoints aren't visible yet.
If there's some "developer roadmap" of when we can expect the android app and/or API to support custom waypoints, I'd love to see it!
Thanks @darthwalsh for posting this and saved me the effort of checking the API. I also noticed, these are not in the GPX export either and I was hoping to see the following in the GPX file so it does look like a completely closed system which is disappointing as I want to use paper based cue sheets. Can the export be added at the sametime as the API if it on the roadmap please?
