streetpilot c340 map symbol weirdness

As I mentioned in a recent post, my Garmin StreetPilot c340 is still working just fine. However there's one thing with it that bugs me. It has nothing to do with the operation of the unit but rather the way it displays map symbols.

This is what the map symbols look like on the c340:

c340-1

And this is what one of the map symbols look like close-up:

c340-2

For some strange reason the map symbol icons are distorted.

This is what the map symbols look like on the c580:

c340-3

And this is what one of the map symbols look like close-up:

c340-4

As you can see there's a huge difference. The c340's icons have a skewed/pixelated look while the c580's (that has identical icons) look the way they're supposed to.

Now what's interesting is that the c340's icons didn't always look this way. Somewhere along the line it just decided to skew/pixelate them for no apparent reason.

Things I've done in an attempt to correct this:

None of the above worked.

There's no issue with the way the c340 operates, but I wish I knew what was causing the icon distortion problem. I don't know if the data is corrupted or if there's something I need to reset that I didn't(?)
