Hello John Its getting better and better. As you promissed the first loding of gpx files is now super fast. But its not wenn you have tp reload or when the poi feature is ticked . When poi is ticked its slower than before and there is no indication whats going on
No change was done that can influence POI search speed.
The only thing that makes it take more or less time is the length of the GPX file and the amount of POI and amount of downloaded map files that overlap the same area as the GPX file.
As i said, in the future i plan to make POI search cached, it will only take time the first time you load a file.
