Add POI on existing route of specific category

If I have plotted a route from A-B I would like to search for e.g petrol stations only on the route. I can’t seem to do that. Should I be able to?

    Hi
    @dbj

    [h3]Fuel[/h3]With your route planned... Tap 4Dot (....) Menu --> Scroll & Select... 'Petrol Station''
    Tap on the required Petrol Station for more info
    Tap on the 'Along route' Icon (screen top right) for more search options

    At the bottom right of the screen is a dual icon 3 lines and 2 circles Tap either end of the Icon to toggle between List & Map view
    Tap on the keyboard Icon to return to the search screen

    [h3]POIs of a specific category[/h3]With your route planned... Tap 4Dot (....) Menu --> MyPlaces
    Scroll down through your POI's... Select Say 'McDonalds' McDonalds appears in blue (Screen top left)
    Tap the 'Whole map' Icon (Screen top right)
    Select the 'Along the route' Icon
    Bottom right of the screen is a keyboard Icon
    Tap on the keyboard Icon
    A Dual icon 3 lines and 2 circles appears
    Tap either end of the Icon to toggle between List & Map view
    Tap on the keyboard Icon to return to the search screen

    [h3]Also there are two search engines...[/h3]Tap the 4Dot (....Menu) --> Setting --> System... Choose a search mode
    The default Quick Search is excellent for general searches

    The Step by Step search is very good for POI searches
    You don't have to scroll down a long list of PIO categories to find the one you want
    (I have 107 POI Categories installed)

    Using the Step by Step search
    Tap the 4Dot (....Menu) --> Drive To --> Point of interest... Choose Where to search
    Near me
    In a Town or City
    Along route
    Near destination....

    Type the POI category name you wish to search
    A list of the individual POI from the Category are listed (using the parameters from 'Choose Where to search')
    Tap the Blue Keyboard Icon (Screen bottom right) to clear the keyboard and display more of the scrollable list
    Tap the dual function Icon to Toggle between the 'Map display'/'List Mode'

    But Note... In the Step by Step search Mode there is problem with the 'Address search 'option where Postcodes requires an Street name/Road name before you can search for a Postcode (The Quick Search mode is the BEST for postcode & general searches)
