I certainly wouldn't want to upset the hairdressers ...

In English it's "Social Service" which is about as vague.  In British 
English that would normally mean a department of the local or city 
goverment, and I'm not sure that American English even has the same concept.

Does anyone have any idea what Garmin actually meant it to be used for 
or if a symbol actually appears by default on any devices?
