Assistance Window / Map View in Navigation Help

Ok What in the world are these little gear / star looking things in my assistance window? They just started popping up and I could not find anything in the manual for what they are / mean. They aren't any sort of business either as they show up in residential area's? While driving down the freeway there's a ton, is my nav broken or something ? I couldn't find anywhere in the idrive to change the settings, decided to post here for someone that might know how to either fix this or what these are.

You've got some Points of Interest (POI's) turned on in the Navigation. Never played with it but go into the Nav menu and turn off POI's...

Ya, the POI's don't make any sense whatsoever considering I don't think anyone's home would be a great POI if that's what it is lol

I'll go fart around with the nav menu and see if I can find that option

Good point! Where exactly is "South County"? I just went out to my car and the closest symbol to the gear your showing was "Dining/Banquet halls". Again doubtful that you have that many dining halls in a residential neighborhood...

south county is in orange county, california think Irvine, CA

After going out and messing with my NAV I found nothing about POI in my Nav menu's possibly since it's an 08 or I'm just looking in the wrong section, iDrive is pretty annoying and laggy.

I came back to the computer to search turning off POI and it appears that the icons will show whatever you last did a search for within your navigation, last search was business as I was doing a craigslist deal and was looking for a suitable location to meet. All the icons must be business address's that have home address's listed, not knowing how to bring up map view in the iDrive is frustrating to try and use the crosshairs to find out what they are but I'll do a search for ATM's or something so the gear goes away since there's like 80 on the screen at one time.

Thanks for the help, going from Porsche's NAV to BMW's has been a feat to say the least but hey I've only had the car for a week.

Thanks for the help

I think it is trying to warn you of Ninjas in your area. Beware!
