Is there a way to disable Foursquare on the XT?

Post by spike747 »

I'm surprised a Google search found nothing on this subject. Its so annoying this foursquare garbage. I'm not logged into it on the Garmin drive, so it must be in the maps. I really don't want it there. I was hoping I'd find it in the map layers, but I didn't see it. I'm hoping I can disable it.

Thanks.

Have you looked in the device directories to see if you can see it listed - If you decide to delete it, back the unit up first to avoid 'bricking' it.
Alternatively give Garmin support a call.

Personally I do not use Foursquare & it does not bother me it being there.

Not in maps (or anywhere I could find on the GPS) - I could not find a way to stop it either.

LIke someone said above, it should be in your Settings. From home page (before Viewing map) Click Settings, Map & Vehicle, scroll down to mymaps, and deselect it. At least on mine.
