If you search for a location by the place name the POI will have the place name, if you select the POI by clicking on the map the POI will have the road name. You should be able to change the POI name before saving.
Is it shaping points? They are created when you drag the route created by Basecamp to a different road to possible got to or around a specific location. You can hide/unhide them depending on what your trying to accomplish.
nope, I create them by searching using coordinates and name them accordingly as per the photo, i don't use many shaping points. When i import a route I would expect them to be listed as per the waypoint name, but not all the waypoints are listed. I will get a photo of the sat nav next time i'm home
