How do you change the background color of an alert?


Is there a way to change the background color of an alert or warning in a POI file?


If you're asking about custom BMP icons downloaded from POI Factory, see if this topic helps:


Tampa, FL - Garmin nüvi 660 (Software Ver 4.90), 2015.30 CN NA NT maps | Magellan Meridian Gold


But if you are asking about the alert bar/box, there's no way to change it.

Thank you for this

Thank you for this information, but I am asking about the background color behind the text of an alert. For instance can you put a blue background behind the alert when you approach a red light intersection.


Nope. Unfortunately, it's not customizable.
