If the user waypoint list is full when the name is
applied to a waypoint, a USER WPT LIST FULL
message will be displayed. Access the User Waypoint
List page and delete any unused or no longer needed
waypoints to allow continued naming of waypoints. If
the user waypoint name already exists in the user
waypoint list, a DUPLICATE USER WPT message will
be displayed. Use a different name or delete the
repeated name from the user waypoint list. The FMS
only allows one name to be used for each waypoint in
the use waypoint list. User waypoint identifiers can be
duplicates of identifiers in the ICAO database. When
using the named waypoint with an ICAO duplicate, the
Select Waypoint page will be accessed to allow
selection of the desired waypoint. The user named
waypoint is identified on the Select Waypoint page
with ** as the country code.
