Waypoint = a point in the field (e.g. where a good bird occurred, or at a fork in the road) measured with my GPS device, in X-Y coordinates. If you use these waypoints on your GPS device, you can exactly find these points of interest.
And how to upload that list of waypoints from the pc into your GPS device? Use a cable (see or e-mail  plus software like GPS Utility (; freeware can upload max. 50 waypoints in one go). 
Or manually enter the waypoints you need.
My GPS device is a Garmin GPS 12.
Disclaimer: I cannot guarantee the correctness of these waypoints.
