-The Landmarks feature allows ​you to save, retrieve ​and display ​on the map various items like locations and paths.+Placemarks are various marks you can save on the maps, including pointsareas and paths. You can create ​and display ​an unlimited number of those marks. They are not linked to any map; when you change ​the current ​map, all your displayed marks remain unchanged.
  
-The application ​allows you to save and restore landmarks ​from and to various ​support, including off-line files (GPX, KML, CSV, LOC) on the memory card and on-line storage (AlpineQuest Community Landmarks).+The application ​is also able to import ​and export placemarks ​from and to various ​well-known formats, like GPS, KML/KMZ, CSV/TSVShapeFile, etc.
