You can even see the time when the petrol station is open. (This is very nice). And it’s possible to select the POI as start or end of the trip.
I don’t get the meaning behind the manual re-ranging location (for POI’s). I assume that POI’s are not moving, so why not click on the POI and select route to or route from? Is there a technical obstacle? I mean this function would it make easier to start or end and at certain POI’s.
Yup, all those blue items that you see on the map (all those that can be turned on / off in the “marker” menu) are imported from other services or websites For a website such things are often quite easy, because you can just make a call to some kind of interface and it gives you the result. In apps you often have to integrate a whole library and get into all kinds of interfacing troubles when somebody doesn’t give you the data you expect It can be hard to explain the difference in a non-technical way, so please ask if anything is still unclear!
Would it be possible (in the future) to get this for the android app too?
Would be nice if the user could select only the POI’s he would like to see (for example: petrol station, bank, restaurant, hotel)
