    Hi Mark, thank for your input. Could you please elaborate on your request? Also, please let me know if Distance to next turn is useful in this matter. It would help us in providing the use case, and expectations to the Product team. Thanks!

    I organise a number of club rides and I have data fields set so that when I am following a route it will tell me the distance & time to the end of that route, all of those route are circular and at some point we stop for coffee and cake, and it would be useful to know how far it is before I reach the  café stop not just the end of the ride, this is mainly for helping some of the young riders to fuel along the route. In this instance distance to turn is not necessary, although I do find it extremely useful as it allows myself and other group leaders to be able to let riders know of the up coming turns and use this all the time.

    Hi Mark, Thanks a lot for explaining that. We have something in the development, that may work well for your use case. In the coming updates, POIs can be seen on the navigation banner with the beeps. So if you have set up a POI for the Coffee shop, it get's added to the Navigation cues. Hope this would help!

    Great to see this in the planning - it's something I've suggested at least twice via the ATG group so great to see it's in the planning.

    This is a great addition in this update, although I have the same use case as Mark (leading group rides), and if we could also have 'Distance to next POI' as a data field option, it would mean we don't need to scroll through the cue sheet looking for the POI in amongst the turns - unless it already is and I've missed it somehow?

    Being able to scroll the Cue sheet effectively in winter gloves is also basically impossible, and knowing how far to the coffee stop (POI) often keeps the legs turning.

    I have found that Hammerhead's implementation of the POIs is really good so the new Cue Sheet with POIs is a very welcome improvement. And I generally find POIs much more useful to me than the turn-by-turn info.

    So +1 on the "Distance to next POI" data field, but also - it would be very beneficial to have a list of POIs, similar to the new cue sheet improvement, but be able to set it for POIs only.  That would be cool.
