    Default Custom Waypoint Symbols for Garmin

    I have searched the forum extensively but cannot find any reference to custom waypoint symbols for Garmin. Even the latest version of Mapsource (6.16.2) is very limited in choice of waypoint symbols. The most glaring omissions is a symbol for a train.

    Do any of you know a link to a database of symbols? It seems a shame to re-invent the wheel if such symbols already exist. I am hopeless at computer graphics!

    If not, this would be a great place to start such a collection.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Beware of Custom Waypoint Symbols on Garmin Oregon 650 firmware version 3.80, though. They provoke instability and reboots of the device.
