Custom POI not showing on maps above zoom level 200ft.

 

Is there anyway to get all of my custom POIs to show on the map? All I can see is the one I've selected to either Go To, or to Map. The other ones only show up when I am zoomed in to 200 ft. or tighter.
This is totally useless to me. The reason I am making these custom POIs is because I am navigating Jeep trails, and auto route does not always work well on these "roads". So I set up waypoints along the trail, and upload them to the Nuvi as POIs. That way I can look at the map (in theory anyway), and see that I am heading in the right direction toward the next waypoint. Obviously, being zoomed in to 200 ft. does not work. I need to see a large section of the map, and see where the waypoints are. The reason I am using custom POIs instead of favorites is because I can organize them into categories.
I am using a Nuvi 350. If anyone has a fix for this, let me know. Will it help if I don't use a custom icon? I could probably live with that. I have a feeling from reading other forum posts that's there's no good solution, but I thought I'd try.
Why doesn't Garmin just design their software so you can organize your favorites into folders or categories? It seems like such an obvious thing to do!!
Sorry. I'm getting a little frustrated. I spent a lot of time learning how to make and organize these custom POIs, and now it appears they might be useless to me.

Only at 200ft

That's when they show. This is in the software from the manufacture.

OK

OK. Thanks for the reply.

Try reading some of the hints about "TourGuide" in the name of POI files at

300'

FWIW, on the 8x5 they show at 300'.

800'

And I lose my trails when zoomed to more that 800'.

It's all about trade offs.

Thanks

Thanks for all of the replies guys. I'll probably just use favorites for these particular locations, and deal with the lack of organization.

Not enough resolution to display POI's and maps simultaneously?

Other manufactures let you see POI's at all screen levels, then let you decide what you want to filter out to reduce the clutter. Thinking most Garmins just don't have the resolution on their LCD's for starters.
