Hi! This was a neat little feature on the old travelpod that I used a lot, but I can't seem to find it anymore. 90% of the time the map automatically finds the place you select, but sometimes it doesn't, and you need to manually set the pin. How then can I use this pin which I've manually selected on a later entry, as there is no 'copy map pin' option?

Can you send me an example of a pin you want to copy?

The process to manually select a pin is a lot faster than it used to be, so we figured that the pin-copy option isn't necessary anymore.

Yes, the process to manually select a pin and place it is very fast, although I still think the need is there for the 'copy map pin' option. I dunno, I'm a bit of a neat freak and like to have my maps looking as tidy as possible, and say I make two or three visits to a national park or some place where I have to manually place the pin, I can't put them in exactly the same spot. The result is I have three pins almost on top of each other, with red lines heading to them and crossing over.
