[mkgmap-dev] Any option to include POIs as ways?From Gerd Petermann GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Wed Jul 26 14:11:31 BST 2017
Hi Dominik, okay, I remember one such barrier after an s-curve on a rather narrow hw=track going downhill. Unwarned, one may arrive with +30 km/h at it. Still. I doubt that we can find a good way to display them. Please try and let us know your results.

My experience is that most barriers are at crossings, besides that you should > probably prefer to look on the road ahead, not the GPS ;-) I'll certainly rather look ahead. ;-) It is indeed not a big issue on roads but on designated cycle ways where some planners seem to love to place barriers right after turns. The problem worsens when you're riding in a bunch with other riders in front of you who do not gradually slow down before a turn but rather brake in full panic when they spot an obstacle. Or simply do not indicate potential hazards such railway crossings. I feel much safer knowing potential dangers in advance. I think that such a feature might be helpful for many other purposes as well: I would like to see the position of mountain passes or summits as 'dots' when cycling (without all the other POIs) whilst others might want to display all bus stops in their public transport map. Garmin devices seem not to offer the flexibility to choose the POIs to be shown. I had hoped for some hidden mkgmap feature or some kind of dual-use capabilities of the link-pois-to-ways function. But I can easily modify the OSM files to create a second node for each POI of (my) interest and a way connecting them, this should solve my problem as well.
