    Howdy all. I have noticed in the last few days, these little red dots appearing all over the streets on my NAV map screen. They SEEM to be representative of street parking signs...as everytime we pass one it shows a little red blip right there. However, this may be coincidence.

    I have shut off all of the POI icons, and yet they still do not disappear. They are not malfunctions by any means...you can tell they have some sort of purpose and meaning, I just don't know what it is, or how to turn them off.

    Any suggestions? Thank you all in advance so much.

    Are they red circles with Xs in them? That seems to mean that you can't turn into that road or driveway. Kind of like where there are no-left-turn signs or one way issues.

    Normally, the little red dots on streets indicate where the Nav Lady gives you further instructions.

    I will try to post a photo. And thanks all who tried to help. It is not the circles with the "x" in them, or nav guidance points. They are just peppered all over major streets. It seems to indicate where there is street parking...but not sure. If anyone knows just from this...great! If not, I will try to get the photo up. Thanks!

    Good, it'll be interesting to see what scale you're at. Does it still occur if the scale is changed?

    yes...but even in "footprint" mode, they still appear like very small dots...but like I said, they are deliberate dots...not just screen "farts," so to speak.

    Do you have Record Route turned on? When you turn it on, the NAV system marks your path with little red dots, kind of like dropping bread crumbs.

    Yes, those are the record dots. I had that happen to me too...and wondered what they were...I did not realize that once you engage the record it does not turn off even if the vehicle is off.
