Default Garmin display priority for waypoints?

Does Garmin have default way of prioritizing display symbols and labels? It feels like the default blue flag and waypoints with long names are displayed on top of customized icons with shorter labels. Waypoints I create on-the-go with short names and fish symbols always seem to be hidden under other labels until I hit maximum zoom.

I'm using an EchoMap 74DV so real estate is limited and my waypoint database is large, so I'm trying to see if there is a way to make some waypoints always show up "on top" by changing my naming conventions and/or symbols...

any hints/suggestions?
