Thanks for the explanations! It would be really nice to have a directory somewhere where one could put pngs that correspond to one's Garmin custom waypoint symbols (Custom 1, Custom 2, etc.) and have those show up automatically for each waypoint with a corresponding "sym" tag in it.

OpenStreetMap project provides such a set: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Icons And they are already packaged (at least for Debian): http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=openstreetmap&searchon=names&suite=all§ion=all A sister project already use these icons: GPSDrive.
