Unfortunately there is currently only one type of  oint location and the 
same type is used bot for intersections and POIs.

It would be nice to have typed points such as intersection, POI, a marker 
that represents the shape of road and so on.

Different approach  would be separate databases for intersections, POIs 
and other types on location data and the some way to quickkly turn each 
database on or off.

> The GRoute made it possible to store POI which it picked from Google Maps.
> Was wondering if we could have more functionality in handling POI's. The key 0 which toggles between exploration, navigation mode could have 1 more level for POI's.
> On selecting the select key it could be made to announce the nearest POI in all the 4 direction. This would help the user to know his point on earth with better granularity.
> Other keys may be assigned tasks for changing categories, adding POI working out turn-turn direction using tools like GRoute. Dialing number of selected POI etc.
