I just entered a flight plan with 83 waypoints, including the origin and destination.  Only the first 68 waypoints are visible on the map.  However, if I do a Direct-To the 5th waypoint, five more waypoints will show on the map toward the end of the flight plan.  If I do a Direct-To the 15th waypoint, all the remaining 68 waypoints will be seen, but not the first 15.

Is 68 the maximum number of waypoints that can be shown on the screen at one time??

There is no fixed waypoint limit. There is a limit on storage size however. As an example, a hold in a flight plan is something like 5 bits whereas a waypoint might be only 2 bits. We only have x bits of space available for storing a flight plan. When you go direct to a waypoint in your flight plan it frees up some storage.
