Melissa....you need a pc.
Open the kml file in googleEarth
This adds the textcp for the colour of the pushpin
Save it.
Open it in say notepad.
Do a search and replace changing red to anpther maps.me color (eg purple)
Save it without changing the file name.
Open in maps.me
You need to do this with each dataset
Fiddly but doable !

It maybe you needcto open in maps.me to add the pushpoint colour.
Then save/export/share and open witt a text editor tp do the search and replace.

Sorry is this has been discussed already, but wondered if it's possible to change the size of the POI Bookmarks in OM?

Thanks

I’ve never used (or heard of) maps.me or organic maps.

I’ll check them out but could someone please give brief info about what benefits they offer over the map on the WC app etc.

Thanks.

From what I've read and seen with using the WC POI app, it does not work well offline so you need an offline maps app. I now have all of the UK in offline maps in my phone, plus the locations of the POIs for overnight stops. My only problem is that I need my glasses on to see the POI locations so would like to make them bigger. I think it's possible to change the colour of the POIs so maybe the size too, but thought I'd ask first in case there's a clever way to do it.
