There could be the map customization, either [F] Full customization or [P] Partial customization is selected.
[F] customization, the roads and lanes tend to be neat and lean.
[P] customization, the roads and lanes tend to be broader.
Everyone contribute a bit, eventually we can enjoy and benefit more in our navigation. :thumbsup:

During navigation, only user waypoints will appear on map.

Nüvi from our 2X5, 7X5 or 500 series families could support animated icons.
Unfortunately, even the 800 series do not have this feature.
