POI/Waypoints clustering in speedometer version 1.6

Version 1.6 (now in beta) will add waypoints/POI import and export in Garmin/csv POI format. You can surely start importing POI files from sites like POI-factory. Some of the files might contain thousands of points and speedo is going to cope with that by grouping waypoints into clusters on a map. Here is a zoomed in view for total of 2000+ speed cam pois in Czech republic (100k POIs is a reasonable limit):

And here is a more zoomed out view:

And of course, however POIs are zoomed on the map, you'll still be alerted on approaching them if decide to use the new "waypoint proximity alert" feature. We'll explore that new option in our next post.
