Removing Outdated or Inaccurate Pins

Giving a pin a dislike helps us find outdated or inaccurate pins to remove. This is the case for submerged hazards, protruding hazards, map issues, and local advice pins.

Argo automatically removes temporary pins after a set period of time. Floating hazards, weather, police, and marine life are temporary pins.
