    Hi, Having an old Garmin device from around 2007(?).
    On one of the built in layouts it shows distance and directions to the the nearest POIs. (approx 5-6? nearest).
    This is visualized as green arrows which changes when moving/driving.
    Anyone who knows any GPS software that handles this? (IOS / Android). Or if any newer 'traditional' GPS devices has this.

    Most GPSs have this function to some degree, for example the Garmin GPSMap 64 has Find >> Waypoint that will list all Waypoints in distance order (closest at the top of the screen), for each Waypoint it displays the Waypoint name, the current distance to this Waypoint and the direction the Waypoint is in, the direction is in the form of 8 points of the compass, e.g. N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW, this is probably good enough at long distances, you can also select a single waypoint for display in the Compass screen to get a full screen compass pointer with distance displayed
