Can someone tell me what the icons on my NAV mean ? I see these
concentric circles on the map at various places. Sometimes I will
drive a route and see them on my NAV and always wonder what the
signify.

Also, I have a MkIV DVD Nav with the V26 software and the latest 2005
MAP DVD. From what I gather, I should be able to configure the maps
to show things like Gas stations, Hotels ... I don't see anything on the
menu that allows me to set which icons get displayed.

If you select a destination for hotels, but then never select a specific hotel or cancel the selection, the map will display hotels. If you select a gas station, when you go back to the map view it will show gas stations.... that's been my experience.

It WOULD be nice to be able to select multiple POIs for display (Points of Interest)... I thought I'd read something about this with the latest version (which I have) but I haven't played with it....

Not sure what you mean with concentric circles.

If you have voice recognition, the easiest way is to display gas stations on the map is to use the "gas stations at current location" command. This will show you a result set of local gas stations. When you then go back to the map, it will show you an picture for each gas station. This works for hotels/restaurants also.
