Love the icons, having the set available really helps as I’m building out maps for different topics. I would love to be able to assign a color to the ring around the picture icon though, not just have the default blue. By having a set of different colored rings, the same icon allows you to record and easily visually recall subcategories you define by those colors.
For example, as I am scouting for places to shoot landscape picture, and overtime as I actually shoot there, I'm recording waypoints. Each waypoint has the same icon and I currently have a set of sub folders named to help me record the status of those locations, e.g. good, to try, to try but I have to figure out how to actually get there, etc.
However, the folder names don’t help to just look at a map and distinguish between them. If I want to try a new place and check one off to see if it’s actually good, I have to manually go in and hide the other folders which then also means I don’t have any sort of visual reference about how close or far it might be from places I do shoot from. Having colored rings, just like we have different colors for the basic pins, would mean I could use different colors to indicate different status and then easily pick them apart, all while still using the same icon to indicate what the overall category is. Not to mention it would make dealing with the folder and subfolder management a lot easier. :-)
So I know there’s a feature request looking for more icons, which I would also like. But I'm posting this separately (and I'll go add my ++ to more icons, too) as it's a bit different than just more icons (and maybe would be easier?).
