    lol now we're cross posting! The author said it's left for the Inspire, which means he doesn't realize the P2 has it too. Guessing he's just an idiot.

    But the P3 will use a different app to the P2V+ and so waypoints might not be in that?

    It's using the same app as the Inspire from what I understand, which has waypoints.

    Actually, the Inspire does not currently have waypoints/GS. It was an original selling point of the Inspire 1, so you can understand people are a bit miffed at the moment. They keep promising it is coming, so I don't see any reason why a P3 wouldn't have access to it once the app supports it...?

    The v+ was advertised to have waypoints when I bought it, but it took a long time in becoming a reality and it was not the same as the P2 GS

    Whoah whoah whoah. Now that you pointed that out, I see two other pieces of info: "Follow me" and "Point of Interest". I expected to see parties in the streets, nobody has mentioned this at all.

    Thanks for the explanation.
    That's for SDK or third party apps. I think, can anyone back me up here?

    Ah crap, you're right. I scrolled to the bottom without looking at the heading.

    That's what they said. Sounded like they were leaving that all to SDK which means they are still beta testing it all. Pretty smart move as company stand point. Let everyone else crash and test then they might use it in the real code.
