Icons not saving?


Does anybody experience the phenomenon where you set an icon to one of your favorites, shutdown then restart and the icon is just the black dot? It's like it wasn't saved at all.

Not sure what to do about it. Any ideas?

This has been a known

This has been a known problem for a very long time so it's very unlikely Garmin will fix this. I actually got used to even prefer the SMALL black dot. The other icons block too much of the map.

workaround or just coincidence...

Just playing around... I opened the gpx file with Microsoft Wordpad (since it handles special characters better than notepad) and when i resaved it from Wordpad, the icons seem to have come back when the unit rebooted. so I'm guessing it's a problem with the programming not saving/reading return carriages properly.

Does this method work for anybody else or was it just by chance that it worked for me?
