Customize MAP Labels
Please let us customize the MAP Labels so we can add more Fields that will show up in the Label when you hover over each location. Fields that will just represent extra info for the specific location - not used for how to display the information but just to provide
extra details for the location.
+1000. Very much needed. I use lat/long pairs and do NOT want to display those but other fields.

Another example. Say that I have CustomerNo, CustomerName, Latitude and Longitude. Under Location I need CustomerNo to break it down to each customer, else duplicate CustomerName would be grouped. I can add both columns to Location? But enabling category labels on the map only shows CustomerNo. Moving CustomerName as the first column still group customers with same name. I can use DAX to concatenate CustomerNo and CustomerName into a single column for Location, but that makes the label very long and messy to read. So I want to display CustomerName only and to do that I need an option to pick a different column for category label than first field on Location.

For our example, we have teams that cover a number of countries and we use the most central country for each team but we want to show the team name and not the country.
Tooltips do allow for this functionality. Create a measure to return a data or string value:
<Measure Name> = FIRSTNONBLANK(<TableName>[<ColumnName>],TRUE)
(If in DirectQuery mode, you'll need to enable the PowerBI global option to "Allow unrestricted measures in DirectQuery mode")
Add the new measure to your tooltip.
Agreed, please add. No more votes left :(

Add it already you lazy bastards
I was hoping Tooltips would provide this functionality, but it just places a count of text items in the hover window.
How hard can this be? The visual is currently useless (to me) with no capability to include more labels to specific points on the map.
Can I add to this. I have a map that displays value of spend by postcode but when I hover over it I can only see the postcode information - I'm not able to work out which customer each 'dot' is without then noting the postcode and searching through a list.
