Sometimes I get mixed between the current armed robbery and the ammunation shop icon. This should get changed it will help newbies to define the current armed robbery on there minimap. It's a benefit for both sides, so I'm positive.
I am ready for any type of help you want, feel free to PM me :)

It is annoying that there is the same icon for two different things, yes the places are different as there is a GPS locating the AR but not all criminals or police have enough experience after there are newbies that must be thought of, there are also some criminals even if they have enough experience get mixed, Positive.

You can already use /arl > press 'n' and follow it but that doesnt change the fact that we need a new icon for AR (Different one) so it become easier for everyone. I highly support this suggestion.

New players often ask what's the armed robbery icon, but when someone answer gun icon, most of them get mistaken and go to an ammu shop instead of the armed robbery. Ammu Shop and Armed Robbery Shop have the same icon (gun) but there's only a little difference which is the color of the gun's grip. I believe it is still confusing for new players, so probably a change to the icon will help them find which is ammu shop and which is an armed robbery. Im POSITIVE :tick:

Goodluck with the other votes  ;)

Supporting this.When you are trying to find the AR icon on the map,your eyes are going on the ammunations directly and its being hard to find the AR among the ammunations.Any different icon might be more usefull.Thats not about /arl or gps,every place has its own icon,AR's should be like that too.Positive

Greetings, I like this idea a lot since the current AR icon doesn't match with the AR itself. So change it to a different icon or the one Omar suggested above is totally understandable and it makes more sense. Anyways, I'm voting Positive. Other than that good luck with other votes. Farewell!

I like this suggestion because that's why it's called "Armed Robbery" not ammunation, When you say Armed robbery it means you'll robbing the place and the "gun" icon for me is not suitable for armed robbery. The icon fits the Armed robbery well so im Positive in this suggestion. This is just my opinion.

I purpose this to be the most suited blip, and probably is not being used in CIT radar.

I don't see how the triad blip makes more sense than the current armed robbery blip. In the past blips could be replaced with a custom image over an original blip, not sure if this is the case with the new radar stuff but if it is, I suggest finding a new icon and replacing it with this triad blip.

green dollar blip is used for CE's, and having the red dollar blip would be more suited to match the two most active criminal activities. Seems all good to me. @Omar what do you think?

I will go Positive.
The newbies are mixing between the ammunation and armed robbery, so this addition will be helpful for them, and sometimes the new cops/criminals aren't attending the ARs, because of the icon, and some changes on the map icons will be cool.
