It would be nice to be able to store personal POIs (bonus: in a categorized manner, i.e. “Food”, “nice streets” etc) and have them displayed as an overlay in the map with context menu integration to add the clicked to the actual route.
I am using kurviger now for quite some time for planning routes on a day-by-day basis. Now I took on the task of planning a multi-day trip into the Alps. While doing research on which streets to visit and where to stay overnight, I stumbled upon the problem, that there is no feature enabling the user to store POIs for later use. It would be a huge improvement for personal planning to have the ability to turn on an overlay with POIs that each get a marker on the map when it’s turned on, thus enabling the user to right-click on such a marker and have it added as a new interim destination to the current route.
Currently I am administering my POIs on Google Maps, which actually provides such a feature. But I do love the Kurviger routing much more and thus I would love to have such a feature integrated…
Well, at the moment I wonder how I was able to ignore that feature until now… /facepalm Yeah, you are absolutely right, this is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the eye opener!
Still, there’s a single thing I still miss: personal favorites are always shown on the map. So, for example I have a collection of nice roads as POIs and another collection of food stations. Both POIs are always displayed on the map - or is there still something I miss out on? Is it possible to only show selected favorites?
Hmmm I think that’s not possible yet, maybe it will come at a later point. Until then please also keep in mind that one software can probably never fulfill all needs. And if you want layering, clustering, sorting, renaming, re-coloring etc. of POI then Google MyMaps will likely always have the upper hand over Kurviger
Yes, there is a tooltip containing the name when hovering the mouse above a POI.
Well. since my feature request was granted way before I even posted it, I’ll change my initial request… It would be nice if the personal POIs were displayed on the map a bit more prominent / bigger. Regardless of the map type used I am unable to spot my POIs with ease, since the icons are really small.
Also, personal POIs cannot be hidden on the map - the menu to select POI types to display does not include personal POIs to be switched on or off.
