displaying rest area POIs on NUVI 255W


Is there a setting where I can show the restarea icon all the time for my Garmin NUVI 255W? I installed the combined rest areas file, but the rest areas do not appear on the screen.

Please help!

Thank You


Nuvi 660 -- and not upgrading it or maps until Garmin fixes long-standing bugs/problems, and get maps to where they are much more current, AND corrected on a more timely basis when advised of mistakes.

Also see: for instructions on loading a custom icon with the POI file.

I have my nuvi 750 set up for the rest areas and the rest area icon shows up without zooming in...
