Many of Garmin's automotive devices allow you to organize your saved favorites into categories. Categories may not display until the device has at least 12 saved favorites. Categories will appear in alphabetical order. A full list of devices that support this feature can be found at the bottom of this article.

For more details on saving locations as favorites, please review the owner's manual for your device.

Please note that categories cannot be deleted as a group, and category names cannot be changed once created. To delete a category, remove all locations from that particular category. To change a category name, the category must be deleted and re-created with the desired name.

For most automotive devices:

To create a new category:

  1. Touch Where To?
  2. Touch Favorites
  3. Touch a favorite
  4. Touch the bubble that appears on the map screen
    • Some devices skip this step
    • Some devices require that you touch the menu button (three horizontal lines) after this step
  5. Touch Edit
  6. Touch Categories or Change Categories
  7. Touch New or the + button
    • If there are no categories on the device, this step will be skipped.
  8. Enter the new category's name
  9. Touch Done

If the favorite selected in step 3 is to be added to the new category, then place a check mark next to the newly created category if one is not already present.

To change which categories a favorite belongs to:

  1. Follow steps 1-6 above
  2. Make the desired category selections
    • To add a location to a category, touch the category to add a check mark
    • To remove a location from a category, touch the check mark to remove it
  3. Touch Back or the back arrow

Repeat the above steps as needed.

  9. Touch Done

The saved place will now be added to all the entered/selected categories.
