Need help removing a MAP feature in ACAD dwg

Greetings.  I work with a colleague who is running AutoCAD MAP.  When he makes a block or saves a drawing, at the origin is a 3D, downward pointing arrow which in 2D plan view obscures anything around the origin.  I open his blocks or drawings in ACAD2012 or 2013 with the same issue.  In plan view, the 3d arrow appears as a circle with radial lines running out from the center.  If I save the drawing in my ACAD that feature is still there.

 

I've attached a png screenshot of what I'm talking about.

 

Is there any way to get rid of that feature, which is apparently coming from his MAP version of ACAD?  I've looked for settings on his machine and on mine.  I have played with the Workspace setting.  I've looked in Options for anything.  Maybe there is a system variable.  Does anyone know how to control the visibility of this 3D arrow in ACAD?

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Erik
