I did some tinkering in OsmAnd~ trying to see bike parking in my map layers and then in the process of trying to turn them off I just added gas stations and regular parking lots and now my maps are so littered with POI that they're unreadable. I go into "map layers" and uncheck the "POI..." box but that doesn't make them disappear.

I just upgraded to OsmAnd~ Version 1.8.2 hoping it would solve my problem but nothing changed. I don't see a way to reset my display preferences to the defaults. What am I doing wrong? I don't need to know where to park or buy gas!

In the main context menu from map display -> Map display, uncheking the "POI..." button works for me ... all orange POI markers disappear.

So I cannot reproduce your error.

I have the same problem; it's not the orange circles that result from a search, it's things like shopping centre or coffee shop or church icons, not circled. They show up when the scale is below 1 km showing on the ruler. I have turned off everything under "configure map" and they're still there.

I suspect it's some sort of search artifact, but I can't find where or how one clears the search. This with version 1.9.2g

Hello Graydon, please do a posting on!forum/osmand and include a screenshot if possible.

I have noted the same problem. I have disabled all checks in "map display -> Map display" and when zooming at a certain poins POIs are all shown regardless

osmand forum is probably best place to ask, though there are likely to be many users here able to assist.

In addition to unchecking the PO box, uncheck the "Point Labels" box. Heck, uncheck all the things.

This OsmAnd forum post references this question, and appears to have a solution.
