Seeing points of interest on a route is helpful – I'd like the ability to add these to a route so that specific spots can be highlighted and shared with the route (eg, a cafe stop or view point).

It would be extra useful if these POIs could be exported as waypoints or course points to connected devices. Some devices have a special support for tracking distances remaining to each upcoming waypoint, for example see "Up Ahead" feature in the recent Garmin devices. I know that Suunto and Coros devices have similar features too.

I think being able to manually add your own POIs to your route is a near must have feature. Currently, I have to use a 3rd party mapping app to do it.

Another use for this POI feature would be to use it to mark danger areas. For example, along your favorite bike route is a dangerous corner, water crossing, or animal. As you approach this POI your watch, head unit or phone then signals you to the danger.  Seems like a must have safety feature.
