3790T could not accept big size of icons, IMO,it caused by its display resolution 800x480-pixel screen, and only support 8 bit bmp.

High pixel screen couldn't show big size icon on very small screen size such as 4.3 inch. The only way is that Garmin enlarges the unit's screen size

Try switching to 2D at 100' to 200'. Worked for me.

Or that they allow bigger icons, and allow you to see icons at higher zoom out up to 0.8 mile configurable by user for custom POIs both in 2D and 3D.

But you have to rename the visible.bmp and silence.mp3 for each set of csv or gpx to make this work.

In POI Loader manual mode, you have to add a distance alert to the CSV file. The easiest way is to add "redlight" to the file name. Instructions for POI Loader says:

If the file name contains "redlight", POI Loader assumes all records in the file have proximity alerts with a distance of 400m/0.25 miles.
