Coordinate grid and surface features

Not sure if this has been mentioned before or is on the to-do-list. I would like to be able to activate a global longitude/latitude grid overlay (like in Celestia) and have the ability to see the names of surface features (e.g. like in Orbiter with F9), for craters, rilles and such.
About the coordinate grid: it would be cool to see the current (nadir) location (Lat./Lon.) of the camera above the selected moon/planet/sol in the displayed info data.

Making grid is difficult at this time, but lon/lat display is quite simple:

Cool! That's great to see Lon./Lat. already working. Thank you SE! smile

A few questions about it:

1) Maybe better to print Lon and Lat in separate lines?
2) At what distance turn off Lon/Lat read-out? Now I do it on 10 x planet's radius.
3) Together with previous: at what distance switch "Distance" to "Height" readings? In 0.94 this was at 1.1 x planet's radius. Now I change it to 1000 km, and I'm still not satisfied.

1) Perhaps have it still in one line, but with N/S and E/W near the respective coordinates?
2) 10x planet radius sounds okay to me
3) Maybe at 2x planet's radius?
