Change Label of Entity on Map Card


Is it in any way possible to change the label of an entity that is displayed in the standard map card?

I have a sensor entity with coordinates as attributes that is displayed on the map. On the map you can see a circle with the first letters of each word of the entity.
I would like to either display the value (or an attribute) of the sensor in the label or an icon.

In the Google Maps camera feed it is possible to work with templates but unfortunately it is not dynamic enough (e.g. click on the entity for further information).

Does anyone have a solution for that?


+1 for me to change these display letters in map card
