i would like to have a selection of icons when i mark places, instead of just the standard one-type-fits-all. I have so many places marked up that itwouldbe useful to see at a glance on the screen if a fuel station taking my fuel card is nearby, or different types of customer, etc. Does anyone else think this would be useful? Colour coding or different symbols?

    The MyPlaces Blue stars on the Map are generic and scaleable with zoom

    [h3]3rd party POIs...[/h3]POIs are installed using the MyDrive Web Route planner...

    [h3]How to import POIs, GPX files and Favourites in MyDrive[/h3]See Tomtom Video...

    [h3]Displaying Personal POIs on the Driving/Planning View Maps[/h3]Be aware... You can't install the POI associated .BMP files
    You can only use the Tomtom supplied generic Icons
    But you can use one icon for for more than one POI category i.e... place all your fuel categories under one Icon, then if you tap on a nearby 'say' Fuel Icon a Quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot Icon for more options & more Information

    [h3]Setup... After installing your Personal or 3rd party POIs....[/h3]Tap 4Dot (....Menu) --> Settings --> Appearance --> Show POI lists on the Map
    It says a restart is required, but I've never found it to be necessary
    After choosing the Generic Icon.. Tap the coloured (^) Icon screen top right... Pinch zoom the Map, the Generic POI Icons all appear live and working
    Note... The Generic POI Icons disappear when the Map is highly zoomed out, and reappear as you zoom in again

    See Update 17.1...
