Overlay manager

The overlay manager manages all types of overlays such as points of interests (POIs) and bookmarks.

    • Cluster waypoints: If enabled then waypoints are clustered leading to a less crowded map.
    • Max. number waypoints: The maximum number of waypoints shown on the map for each overlay. A high value can have a significant negative impact on performance.
