Anyone know how to add GPS waypoints data to iPhone maps?

I'm going trekking soon in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, UK and have a guide book that includes GPS waypoints data (pic attached below).

I can't figure out how to enter the waypoints into my iPhone. Does anyone know if the iPhone 3GS map can understand this type of waypoint data? Any help much appreciated, thanks in advance
James

You really want MotionX-GPS, it's a great app for what you are trying to do.

For what you get the price is very reasonable as well.

I've got the MotionX-GPS app but can't seem to add the waypoint data format above into it. Am I missing something here?!
