    nextgen A little off topic

    Is it really that important as to which POI icon is showing???

    It is a gas station plain and simple.

    You can see it right in front of you who cares if the icon is not correct or it is showing more that one in the same place.

    I find this a little petty to even bring up this as a problem.

    To spend that much time looking at your smartphone screen to catch a mistake when it comes to which icon is showing.

    Instead of just keeping your eyes on the road if you need fuel then stop and get some.

    @asprin624
    No, it's not a big problem, just curious why it happens and to find out how accurate these pois are.
    And of course and don't do this while I'm driving :-)

    Hi,

    @ Asprin624

    Your comments concern your own opinion.
    I think some truck drivers, who have fuel cards specific to a few brands, will be very happy to know where to find the right sign!
    But this is only my personal opinion .................

    My son in-law has a Shell card and drives all over Europe for his work.

    He has never had a problem finding the correct gas station in the 10 years he has been driving.

    The key is you look out your windscreen and see the gas station sign.

    Not on the GPS.

    I do not have the time to keep looking on the GPS app or a stand alone unit to look for a gas station.

    There are many many signs on the highway telling me there is a rest area with Fuel.

    If it is not the one I have a gas card with I have also cash and a EC card plus a credit card.

    You do not leave home or work to travel without being prepared for your trip.

    And to top it off most gas credit cards offer it can be used in other gas station.

    And I am sure this is offer in most EU countries.

    As Alain57 already said, I don't think this is the purpose of this thread friends.
    It's everybodys choice to use pois or not but if you use them it's important that they are actual.
    Always handy if you are on holiday to find out where the nearest by petrolstation ( or other poi of course ) is located.
    Also my opinion.

    " If it is not the one I have a gas card with I have also cash and a EC card plus a credit card. "

    Tell a truck driver from a small company who puts 1000 liters in his tank ..........
    Anyway, the subject is closed, at least for me !
