Is any of what I am describing possible?
Maybe this is not what you are asking about, but on the map that shows up to the right of the destination entry boxes on the connectedrive website, you can mark the destinations manually (or enter them by address on the left) and then drag the route the same way you can on the regular googlemaps page to select different routing between the points. If you zoom in to the street level you can pinpoint the exact point you want to mark for the waypoint (I highly recommend zooming in, as doing it from the macro perspective may send you to some odd places).

As far as marking something as a waypoint vs. destination, I don't know if that is possible. I can only make this work by downloading to a USB stick and importing it to the car.

Hope this helps.
