remove restaurant icons from map? 2555lmt

 

I must be missing something..
I don't care for all the restaurant icons on the map while using the gps. Is there a way to turn these off from settings?
I go down certain roads and it is filled with restaurant icons, it's just saturated..

Thanks for info.
I went into layers and found "places along road", "traffic" and "trip log" buttons... I chose the "places along road" and that looks to have turned off the icons.. I didn't have a service icon/wrench but it looks to have worked. THX

Good work

Yes, one of the first things I did when I saw all those icons was to turn them off as well.

Great

Turning off the "Places along the road" map layer not only turns off the large ugly icons that are included in the map data but also turns off all of your Custom POI icons. At least that is how my 3597 works. I'd much prefer to leave the Places map layer active and put up with the ugly icons in order to also see my custom POI icons.

Here is an example of the difference:

I have found on my 3597 if I have a custom icon for many of the locations Garmin's icon would appear, the custom icon is the one that appears. That also means you have to have a list of the locations stored as either a CSV or GPX but the display is a lot cleaner.
