How do I remove POI's from my GPS?

IMO, the simplest method would be to Correct the POI on your PC and re-upload. It will overwrite the default POI file on your SD card.
There are other possibilities, but it is unlikely they are in play in your situation.

Thought experiment: I buy a new CX and put a blank microSD in it and turn it on. What is in \Garmin\Poi at this point, and how does the GPSr react to builtin POI?
I think the gpi file is not actually a textfile, although it does have text in it. It's probably overkill to use a hex editor on it but at least we'd kmow how the file is structured.

The previous Beta (V188.8.131.52) allowed you to remove your Custom POIs. The current version (v184.108.40.206) does not. AFAIK you can delete the poi.gpi file without any trouble. You can also rename it and load a new set of pois (see Munin's Silly POI tricks thread).
