How to add a POI (Point of Interest)?


1. You can place the cursor on the map at the location where you would like to add and save the POI 

(there is no "import" function for the APP at the time this article was written 2/2021, that would e.g. make it possible to import POI's as .GPX files from some other application)



2. If you have just located your own position on the map and the map is centered to your location, you can save POI to your own location and use it's for this purpose



3. When the cursor on the map is at the right place to add a POI


- In the map view, tap the lower left corner button or swipe from the left side of the screen to the center of the map
- The left side menu of the application opens

- Tap "This position"

- Tap "Add a point of interest"

- Give a name for the POI (in this menu you can also edit the icon shown on map for this POI and color for the icon)

- Tap "Save"

- Then you can see the saved POI shown on map

- You can e.g. open left side menu -> "Target compass" and see an arrow pointing to a POI selected to be shown on map



4. Once the POI is saved to your targets list and you would like to use it later on 


- In the map view- tap the lower right corner button or swipe from the right side of the screen to the center of the map
- The right side menu of the application opens

- Tap "All targets"

- Tap "My markers"

- Tap the icon for the POI (not the name of the POI)

5. If you want to remove some POI from mapview


- In the map view- tap the lower right corner button or swipe from the right side of the screen to the center of the map
- The right side menu of the application opens

- The first menu view that opens, lists the targets selected to be shown on map

- At the end of each targets name, there's an X of which you can tap to deselect it as not to be shown on mapview


6. You can also edit the coordinates for the POI


- In the map view, tap the lower right corner button or swipe from the right side of the screen to the center of the map
