Feature Suggestion - expand POI features

  • In MRA, I love possibility to upload own file (gpx) of POI.
    But you are not using full functionality of common agreed functions of POI. Please can you develop to use full set of possibilities of POI.

    • Unfortunately, there is only one fix Icon for all POI, given by MRA.
    • Unfortunately, there is only a Name possible for a POI - nothing more, no description, no address, no URL

    In common rules for POI, there are a lot more of data fields allowed:

    • Position
    • Name
    • Description
    • Address
    • Phone
    • URL
    • Icon
    • ...

    I would like to keep my Information about POI like Hotels and others in MRA as well as in Navi device. But solution by Waypoint is not sufficient because restriction of amount of WP in Navi device. Amount of POI is not restricted because of different data Format.

  • Yes, that is what I missing with the own POI database.

    POIs are on the roadmap, point 1.9.
    Adding the POI manager. Allows members to create, share and edit Point Of Interest maps. Also allows multi-route exporting.

    We have asked with the RouteXperts community whether it is possible to deal with this earlier

  • @Hans-van-de-Ven-MRA-Master Hai, it is indeed on the roadmap but it also seems that developments are on-going which are not on the roadmap (and that is putting the roadmap as a whole in question.

    Anyway, considering that officially the roadmap is on step 1.3 and POI are step 1.9 with an average 3 months per step, this is still a long way of. We need to be patient (I know, I am not good at that either 🙂 ) , a development team is generally always to small, and it always works on urgent issues popping up and ruining the planning 🙂

    Hi Drabslab, What developments are going on that are not in the roadmap?
