Search Near a Location
You can tap the Near button to determine the location area, where you want to search for a specific place, such
as a gas station, hotel, or restaurant.
The available options are listed below.
Current Location
Lets you search near your current location. This is the default value.
Destination
Lets you search near a specified destination. For example, you know your

You can use Destinator to locate the tourist attractions most appealing to
yourself, family, or friends. Note that this button is enabled only when a
destination is entered.
Other Address

but on the way you want to stop at another location. You can use this feature to
search near that location for restaurants, lodging, historical sites, or anything
you want.
Search Radius
Enter the location distance to search for a designated place. For example, if you
enter 5 km, Destinator only searches within a five kilometer radius.
When you select a large search radius, you risk the chance of finding too many
locations, which makes it harder to find the place that you are searching for. It
is best to start with a small search radius size, and then make it larger if
necessary.
Note: if you don’t specify a search radius, Destinator searches the whole
map.

Symbol on Map
Lets you customize your POI list by showing or hiding the POI category
symbols that you don’t want. When you hide a category a red mark appears.
