Does anyone know if there is a way to display all custom POI's on the map? I miss my Quest. It would do this.
This information is from Garmin support page.
Will my automotive device display POI icons on the map?
Most automotive devices will only display icons on the map for your saved Favorites or custom Points of Interest (POI) files that you may have installed. To view the custom POI icons, you will need to zoom in the map to 200 feet or closer. The preloaded points of interest (restaurants, hotels, attractions, etc.) will not display icons on the map if they are not also saved favorites.
The device will show the POI icons on the map when it has started moving or is in an active route.
POI icons will NOT display on the map if your map view is set to either North Up or Track Up.
The nuvi 55, 56, 57, 58, 65, 66, 67, 68, 2405, 2407, 2408, 2505, 2507, 2508, 2509, 2609, 2707, 2708, 2709, 3400, 3500, 3507, 3508, zumo 350, zumo 390, zumo 590, dezl 570, 760, 770, and Camper/RV 760. series devices will only display POI icons when you have the Places Along the Road map layer selected and are in an active route. For more information on map layers, view the article What are map layers and how do I use them on my automotive device?

This isn't necessarily true anymore. My 3597 displays icons for custom POI at every zoom level whether I am on a route or not. I think a lot of the newer devices will also display the icons at any zoom as well.
Needing to zoom was true with the old 3 digit models and may have been true for most of the 1xxx models but I think that limitation has gone away pretty much. Garmin probably hasn't updated that FAQ for many years.
The Garmin support pretty well says that on the newer models . With Places Along the Road map layer selected and are in an active route. My 2597 shows all kind of icons with the along the route feature. That should also apply to the OP if the settings are correct. See http://goo.gl/0y4lx8
