    I have looked around the forums but haven't found this question asked. I want to permanently delete some of the stock POI categories:

    Car dealership
    Casino
    Church
    Golf course
    Ice skating rink (who thought of that one?)
    Legal/other
    Legal/solicitors
    Place of worship
    Sports center
    Tennis court
    Veterinarian

    Anyone know how I can do this? Thanks.

    What is the problem with just not having those categories checked for showing on a map?

    Because..

    I'm never going to use them. They're just visual clutter when I am looking at the list of POI categories. They also take up space on the card.

    The compression algorithm used by TT for the pois that came with your map prevents any program from editing out information.

    You CAN delete a provided poi with the latest firmware but that is not what you are looking for. Sorry.:eek:
