How about a general yet personalized scheme?   I've often wanted to
"mark a spot" on the road for later reference - either person or to
share with others.   There should be a general name and icon that
would work for this.

The MYCALL name could be:  MRKNWP

The icon could be???

Then when ever I wanted to leave a mark I could switch to that PM and
beacon a couple times to mark the spot.

A simple findu search on MRK* would bring up all the marks..
