Wrong placement for "MRT Serangoon", which gives wrong routing.

Can we move it to "N1 20.987 E103 52.412"?

Thanks

I am relatively new here. So, this is a question to moderator Chuah:

I find it often useless to know the location of MRT station because it is underground or over the ground level (meaning, not reachable by car). So, often it gives the entirely wrong routing, which is painful. I think we can make extra POI for pick up point

What is importnat is "exits of MRTs" where we drop and pick up others.

Is there a technical reason why we are not marking MRT exits (instead of station locations)? If it is technically possible, I don't mind compiling a co-ordinate list myself.

Thanks

Hello Chuah, I am not sure whether this is the format that helps you. Anyway, see if this works.

This contains the waypoints for MRT pickup locations in NE line. I haven't assigned any categories because I wasn't sure how to do it.

I have wasted lot of time circling around MRT stations trying to find the right place to pickup people. I hope this will help everyone.

Let me know whether I should do the same for other lines too.

Is there a limit on maximum number of charactors in the POI name? I felt that names I used here are too long.

I realized that Nuvi 715 can't show long names. Here is the update with shorter names.

MFM 100705

Location of Admiralty West Prison is wrong.

I have marked the correct location, and the road leading to the Admiralty West Prison carpark.
