Users of Mapstr: If you have 'Alert me when I pass nearby' set to enabled, does the user get notified only one time, or does the notification occur each occurrence of when the user is within the geographic vicinity of the marked point of interest?

Since 11 days have passed on my comment, as of this writing, I contacted the folks working on 'Mapstr' directly. I was sent the following: "The nearby alert will alert you each time'.

Hi Kurt! Sorry, I didn't see your first comment (I'll have to investigate why). Yes, it should notify you every time you pass by a place - until you turn the feature off for that pin.

One other tidbit to share from my interaction with the Mapstr folks, I asked them about user-created Google Maps with user-defined points of interest. I was told that I am able to import the KML file generated from these maps for use in Mapstr. Great!
