Non-directional Coursepoints

I very much like the way that the TCX download can include turn Coursepoints; I have a Garmin Edge 500 it has no map but can display a breadcrumb route and pop-up Coursepoints.

Is there any way to add the non-directional Coursepoints to a route please?  Like Food, Water, Danger, Summit (you get the idea).

Full schema is here:, but I'm guessing that you are familiar.

Gap in the Celtic Trail

I've been looking at the Celtic Trail route (NCN4), when I add a small via (to take in a town centre) I notice that the distance jumps from 245mi to 254mi.  I think that I've figured out that this is because the map does a recalculation and then cannot join up the forced vias around Pembrey Airport, causing the route to double back a couple of times and adding the distance.

When I export the route to Garmin Connect, it also cannot make this loop around the airfield.
