Hiding unnecessary icons

The blind factory preloaded icons on my Garmin DriveSmart 60LMTHD are irritating me. Those gas and restaurant icons without brand icon. Is there a way to hide them? I do not need to see that a restaurant is coming if I do not know what brand. I do not need to know that a gas station is coming if I have full tank. The icons cover streets what I do not like.

Garmin Nuvi 3597 Custom Dashboard & Auto Zoom Disable

I recently set up a Garmin Nuvi 3597 for my mother in law and set up on for my sister in law yesterday. Anyway, that made me wonder what my fellow POI members are doing in this regard. If you have a Garmin Nuvi 3597:

-Do You Use The Custom Dashboard?

-If So, What Do You Select In Each Field?

-Do You Like And Use Auto Zoom Or Have You Disabled It?

For now, my selections are:

Changes to settings when upgrading to 2017.30

Ok all you Garmin experts. I have done a lot of map updates, and I have never had the update change my system settings. When I upgraded to this map right before a trip to North Georgia and Tennessee, I wished that I had not have done the upgrade. It changed all my settings, voice and preferences.

What would a good replacement for my missing 2595 LMT BE.?

I'm STILL KICKING MYSELF BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS. It was fun but not a necessity. I miss it already. Stick with what little I knoe or try a new adventure?

What's the best way to handle a 'correction'...?

eg... I have noticed a POI for the Dunkin Donuts in Crofton, MD is about 1/2 mile off... I'm ASSuming I can go to the proper spot, save the proper GPS coordinates, then correct the Excel spreadsheet at home and save... but that's selfish... should I detail and send that correction to the most recent author...?

Garmin 2597 starting intermittent

Since yesterday my 2597 only starts intermittently. I was using it most of the day, however after I picked my wife up from work, it wouldn't turn on. A few hours later after being stopped for awhile, it turned on again; later not. Wouldn't start first time this morning, but did later, then not again.

Galileo and Garmin

Is there any reason Garmin, and others, cannot start using the Galileo satellites? They have 18 up and plan to go to 30.

Changing Icons on the "Up Ahead" feature

Has anyone changed the ICONS on the Up Ahead feature?
Say, if you want to choose a specific gas station like "shell" or a specific restaurant like "McDonalds"

In the up ahead feature:

* To search for a specific business or category, select a service, select Custom Search, and enter the name of the business or category.
Select Done.


Nuvi 2598... having issues with audio alerts, but I've done this before...

ok, I'm not a rookie at this, but hopefully someone might have a suggestion...

I've had my alerts working before... I have the latest POI Loader... sox.exe (older version from 1/29/2008 {14-0-1}) is in the C:/Program Files (x86)/Garmin/POI Loader directory... all .wav files are meticulously checked and triple checked to match the file names of the .csv files...
