ICONS do not show up in the station list.  ANd glancing at the station list
is the quickest means of getting situational awareness while driving.  The

Conversly, poking around and selecting EACH station out of a 100 deep list
while driving just to see what it is, is something I hope that mobile
operators do not do.
