Redlight POI Icons

 

Does anyone know where I could get an icon for the redlight poi?

I have searched some places with no results. I tried creating on myself, but that does not look like a traffic light.

Go to google, click on images and put in a search for Red Light, you will come up with quite a few different icons

red light icon

Funny you should ask.

I was working on making a redlight bmp. However I ran into a problem.

I can't get my c550 to recognize custom bmp's. This seems to be a problem since the last update. Even custom bmp's on an sd card won't display. I've posted elsewhere.

Anyway, I haven't been able to check the redlight icon/bmp's to see how they look.

For the Nuvi all you need to do is name the poi file (.csv) the same as the .bmp and the poi loader associates them together.

Does it not do that on the c550?

It does, but something in the last firmware update won't allow it.

If you'd like, I have two traffic light bmp's
but I haven't had the opportunity to check them or fine tune on the gps. So, I really can't say what they'd look like. (Might be complete trash)

You are welcome to try and let me know what you think.
click my name and then use the contact tab to email me, be sure to include your email so I can send to you.

Hi. Could someone put those

Hi.
Could someone put those icons online at this site, that would be wonderful.
THANKS to POI factory and everyone for creating this database. It's been right on so far.

thanks

redlight icon web site

Ok, I've put together a couple of traffic light bmp's

As I've said in prior posts, I haven't been able to verify the appearance on my c550 due to a bug in the latest firmware update.

So, take a look and try them out and please give me some feedback so I can adjust if needed.

Sometimes they look totally different in a graphics program / browser than they do on the gps.

you can contact me with feedback via the contact tab on this site, until I can finish the site. Use "redlight icon" or something similar in the subject line or else it may get tossed out.

Edit:
Ok there is an email link now and a link back to the poi factory.
Try the icons at

Need the feedback

Also, if anyone has ideas or suggestions for other "icons", I'd be willing to attempt to make them, then post to the site.

In the mean time I'm needing feedback or I may have to abandon the idea.
