#822 new enhancement/feature request

Add own POIs

Reported by: mase Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: minor Milestone: version 0.6.0
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: Keywords: poi, map, search


Is there a plan to support own POI csvs that can be searched to navigate to? Also adding own categories and POI specific symbols when displaying POIs as a map? For example I added a csv as a map with hotspots. On the map they should be displayed with an own symbol and they should appear in the POI menu, so that I can search and navigate to them.

  • Priority changed from major to minor

This would be a useful feature.

As an aside, hotspots are already supported with the type poi_wifi which uses the icon wifi.xpm. These POIs will appear in the simple POI list: both in the main list and in the "Unknown" list (the last POI category icon)...

  • Keywords poi map search added
  • Milestone set to version 0.6.0

I'm not sure what this issue is about in detail. For what I understand:

  • External POIs should become more easier to integrate
  • This POIs should be customized in their visual appearance
  • They should be browsed in categories (I guess via the usual search dialog?)

IMHO this means, that we need to integrate more common formats as GPX/KML/ ... to simplify integration of shared POI files. This formats have internal styling enabled. Extending the search dialog will be a good idea and needs to be integrated hand in hand with the upcomming restyling of the dialog.
