PolarView Waypoint Icons

The next version should finally get a new waypoint icon set. Here is a sample. What do you think – how readable are they?

Update: I threw a coin a few times and came up with 3 more icons to make it even. The last icon is my attempt at a diving flag in monochrome.

      Thanks Richard. Any other symbols you’d like to see? This set could use 3 more (purely for visual reasons, to fill up the “icon picker” widget) 🙂

    Those icons will work well! I like them.

    What about a “Here, there be dragons” symbol? 🙂

    How about one to mark locations for fuel?

      Good idea – but that means I have to make 5 more now , to keep icon picker looking good 🙂 I’ll try to work it in.

        I’d be glad to help… I have some minor design skills 🙂

        You have a template to work with? If so, just Email it over and I’ll donate a few 😉

    how about some different colored ones. Here in the gulf regions we may have 500 different fishing spots to mark and it would be nice to be able to categorized them by color depending on fish species caught at a paticular location…

      Waypoint icons are single color so that they can be easily distinguished from any other items on the chart. That said, I see your point. There may be a way to accomodate colors as well.
