I lost the ability to show Custom POI files on my Garmin Drive Assist LMT-S after the last update. I am currently using Version 6.20 on the Garmin. I called support and they advised me the engineers had disable that feature in the last update. Is anyone else aware of this or any workarounds?
Is Garmin resorting to the same tactics as TomTom, disabling features on their devices after a period of time ( what they call end-of-life); so as to force users to get newer devices?
My warranty is not even over. Would like to know if I'm being fed a line.
I just checked. If I understand what you are saying I can still see custom POIs. Navigate "where to", scroll down and the icon for "custom POIs" is there. I hit it and there are contents. Did I misunderstand you?
I can confirm that I'm running 6.20 on my DriveSmart 51LMT-S later.
Yes, that works but I had been able to see all my custom POIs on the running display in the past.
When you touch Custom POI tab,then all,you will see all the custom POI'S based on distance from your location.
I’ve been used to seeing them show up right on the screen as I drive via a unique icon, a unique sound and a description that shows up on the top of the screen as you go by them.
Now I understand.I'll watch for that now. Actually I hope that you are right. I disliked seeing LARGE (way too large) icons cluttering up the map when I wasn't using them.
I am wondering if Garman has disabled this feature on all the Garman Drive units.
I use them when navigating unfamiliar places, as to identify specific location markers, or to locate, at a glance, specific gas stations or,food outlets or any other locations in my Custom POI file.
My icons are at a sized as to be useful but not clutter up the screen.
Sometimes newer is not always better
mine are gone- I guess I need to look at the new location
My custom POI's do show on the screen, ie RLC's and other custom icons.
hope this is incorrect, if it is true the bean counters at Garmin are going to regret it. it removes maybe the only reason to use/buy a garmin pnd over an android/ios map program
