Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I happen to have the coordinates for a house in a new residential area. The street is on the map, but no houses are drawn, and I'm unable to pinpoint the house on the map.

There must be some .GPX file I can make from <wpt lat="59.6582207" lon="9.6543459"> <name>Tislegårdveien 24</name> </wpt> and upload somewhere?

(Going back there with a smartphone is now a 1000 km option.)

... you can also use Osmand on your smartphone, enter those coordinates in its search feature, enable the OSM editing plug-in before, and add a new "POI" on that position with appropriate tagging about the housenumber.
