In this paper, the problem of describing the structure of transformations leaving norms of generalized weighted quasi-arithmetic means of invertible positive operators invariant is discussed. In a former result of the authors, this problem was solved for weighted quasi-arithmetic means, and here the corresponding result is generalized by establishing its solution under certain mild conditions. It is proved that in a quite general setting, generalized weighted quasi-arithmetic means on self-adjoint operators are not monotone in their variables which is an interesting property. Moreover, the relation of these means with the Kubo-Ando means is investigated and it is shown that the common members of the classes of these types of means are weighted arithmetic means.
