Version 1.8 is out in the wild! Here is what's new at a glance: 
● New to the common map settings is a "Pointer" section that allows you to pick from 5 pointer types for the main map (car, airplane, boat, triangle, default).
● Map settings screen now has a section offering to show/hide a course line, configure its length and number of marks.
● Map settings screen adds an option to disable or enable waypoints grouping on a map.
● (Pro Pack) Track can now be pinned to the Google map as well.
● (Pro Pack) Use existing Rmaps, sqlitedb, mbtiles maps in the app. Prepare or use your existing maps from MOBAC and TileMill.
● UTM. Support for both "hemisphere" and "latitude band" formats.
● In the map "browse/edit" mode (when you disable map centering):
You can now search on the map by waypoint.
