That's good to hear - My phone is a Samsung S20. App/Font-Size: 120%, Map: 100% on all. The Waypoints box width seems to be the issue: Fine on Portrait but just should "fill" the screen in Landscape. I don't think it's a size setting my end.
I guess it depends upon your method of "filing" and how you plan trips. A splodge of orange stars over the map (especially without a text label at a significant zoom) isn't the best. Turning icons/overlaps on/off during a trip isn't practical, hence the idea of colours (and, potentially, custom icons).For example: OSMAnd lets you import a GPX file and colour accordingly, with an option to toggle the group display on/off. For me, if I was looking at an area to visit, and I'd done my homework, I might want to see very quickly what places I had marked as areas to visit or stay at - with a suitable icon to denote what it was (camera, fuel-pump, tent etc).
Garmin-style icons is what I'm alluding to. The difference between basic dots/orange-star and dedicated icon types/pictures are night+day. A config option (or specified within the GPX file) allowing this would cater for those who wish for the current (orange) star Bookmark, perhaps with an option to change the colour - and also those who may have a desire to differentiate the various stops on their journey.In my screenshot, BaseCamp vs Cruiser Desktop on the same GPX Route.
Yes, I appreciate that the icon names will need to transpose between (competing) applications(!), common-sense would suggest that there should be some kind of standard naming convention for this :)Sample file contains a few places exported directly from BaseCamp.
Lekker!Icons like that, presented on the map (and/or in a "near me" list) would work much better than a generic "star" IMHO. Or, as I said before, at least the choice of having Cruiser ingest the GPX icon if available.It's also more useful in Cruiser because, with BaseCamp, you create a blank "List" for an adventure/trip - with 1 or more routes plus waypoints. So it works by Parent/Child Nodes and you copy/paste existing waypoints from "list" into another if you need them in that new route.Cruiser does it better: By having the Bookmarks always visible, but essential they are icons for each type of waypoint rather than a coloured star. In short, I could zoom anywhere on my map and start planning a route with the existing Bookmarks because they are always present - and not have to check other tabs/lists to find where I've hidden that special hotel I bookmarked 3 weeks ago in a different route!I suppose the only real concern here is they *might* be Garmin's own icons. I don't know much about the licence of them - free icons are easily available but if there is an accepted standard or favourite archive, then so much the better.
Who knows how popular my request is or how others do it, but it *seems* logical to have the option of flexibility.
The display looks good, and yes - some compromise between "detail" and "looks" regarding zoom-level makes sense.A while back, I tried using MapNavigator on my phone, and to get a displayed list of Bookmarks required using a Windoze app called "Digger" which took my BaseCamp-exported GPX of Waypoints and allowed you to inject an image into the resulting .poi file so you could display that group with the specified icon - however, very messy and *not* something a casual user would enjoy doing.Perhaps, at the bare minimum, coloured Bookmark icons (like OSMAnd). Later on, it would certainly be nice to click a new Bookmark and have a small window open with a selection of pretty icons to choose from. In the past, I've used IconArchive to find commercial-free icons for projects - I wonder if, providing the file was a suitable type and size, the dialogue box to select an icon would load whatever images the user had in their own sub-folder?
