I would like to add a list of features (points) to OSMand that I need to survey on the ground. Steps I have managed so far:

  1. I have got an extract (by clicking the GPX file link at http://robert.mathmos.net/osm/postboxes/2/map.html?lat=52.39322&lon=-1.62701&zoom=13&layers=TB0T )
  2. Have copied this to /osmand/tracks on the phone
  3. Have got the GPS "track" to show.

My issue is that all features appear the same in OSMand and clicking on each one only brings up the waypoint name (some useless ID).

What I would ideally like is to be able to view each waypoint in a different colour depending on its status (see link above). Is this possible? If not then is there some other way to achieve a similar effect.

Thanks

I used text wrangler to replace the </name> <cmt> with a space and then the </cmt> with </name> from your boxes.gpx

From this...
<wpt lat="52.411469959414" lon="-1.67507208439022"> <name>PB-014</name> <cmt>Missing OSM Box</cmt> <sym>Post Office</sym> </wpt>

to give this at each waypoint ...
<wpt lat="52.411469959414" lon="-1.67507208439022"> <name>PB-014 Missing OSM Box </name> <sym>Post Office</sym> </wpt>

and you can copy it from https://www.dropbox.com/s/0y3higaej9eztlr/boxes2.gpx?dl=0

This may work for you.

Editing the text file seems like the best approach for now. I don't want to add a load of Notes as this could get very cluttered very quickly.

Use the notes feature. As far as I can recall, OSMand pulls in open notes

It does after activating the corresponding notes plugin.
