4. Good hh spots such as petrol stations and rest areas only appear at lower zoom levels. You might want to bookmark these spots in the area you are heading beforehand. This will make lookups quicker.<br>
To do so, place the crosshair on the spot > press screen > Add bookmark > give a name. The bookmark now shows at all zoom levels.
The bookmark is saved to bookmarks.kml in .local/share/marble/bookmarks and can be edited in a kml editor, for example Google Earth. (Unfortunately the desktop version of Marble crashes when exporting the bookmarks.kml file.). Make a backup before you start just in case.
