Default Waypoints 16TZ 3

Have 2 Furuno TZ3 mfds 2020 models in my boat. Great machines, but Im wondering if someone can help me with an issue. I have about 3000 waypoints in my computer for NE Fla. Currently, I only have about 270 of them loaded into the Furuno. The problem is if I load all of them, the screen would be blacked out with points unless I zoom way out.
Is it possible to load these into a file or alternate function in the machine without the waypoints showing up on the chart .
Thanks, Tony B

when the chart is displayed swipe up from the bottom and you can turn points on or off.

I dont have as many points but close. Around 2000. And it has been no issue at all. Furuno has a way to set the point density. So it doesnt black out your screen. Multiple points will show as a single point until you zoom in. It works great. And its adjustable. Here is how to change the setting.

Perfect! That’s what I was looking for.
