When I was uploading some waypoints from an old GPS that didn't store
tracks, I left the waypoints as "wpt" waypoints but stuck a dummy track
point in the file as well at the same latitude and longitude, like this:
<wpt lat="52.6290659" lon="-1.6787721">
<cmt>Anchor, Glascote Road, Tamwort</cmt>
<desc>Anchor, Glascote Road, Tamwort</desc>
<trkpt lat="52.6290659" lon="-1.6787721">
Once the GPX file has been uploaded you can unlock the uploaded
waypoints in Potlatch and edit them as required. Obviously the GPX file
can contain all your waypoints, as long as you can remember how to find
them on the map - with a "track" containing only one point you won't be
able to follow it to the next point.
