I do not want to have my home location displayed. I thought of relocating Home Location to the nearest intersection a few blocks away. The last thing I want is someone to break into my car, find out where I live and break into it knowing that I and my car was at a different location and having nobody home.

I have gone through the menu several times with no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Idea of relocating to a nearby intersection is spot on. Often recommended here. Not sure what the malfunction might be in the execution, though.

Settings / 3? right arrows / Home location

From there, you can reset using address (intersection, in your case), or your current coordinates (if you happen to be at the intersection), or coordinates, or a point identified on the map, etc.

Thank you for your response. I have relocated it a few blocks away at the nearest major intersection, I was wondering if was possible to remove the Icon entirely. Anyhow, what's the story with the WD-40 patch avatar? Just curious.

Only way to get rid of it completely is a factory reset, which will delete all of your settings, etc. Annoying.
Better to do as you have so that it's easy to get a reasonable ETA and routing for a trip home without having to enter your own address repeatedly.

WD-40 story is way convoluted, having to do with someone trying to use it in place of mace, off on another board altogether. That said, it's not a very good lubricant for most things.
