    Nice, but how about the ability to add multiple POI I have several thousand and don’t want to spend a year adding them one at a time.

    “Drag and drop your custom POI list and icons from your computer”

    What file format does Co-Pilot use?

    Funny how it is never mentioned anywhere in this article exactly what a POI is.
    So just for those of you reading this who are not familiar with every acronyme ever invented, POI means Place of interest.

    I would like to point out that not everyone reading English actually has English as a mother tongue.
