Show Icons

 

New to POI downloads....have a Garmin Nuvi 750. Downloaded & installed the POI that I wanted via the new POI Loader courtesy of Garmin USA. That was fine & kind of straight forward..(thanks to the POI loader and not me). However the icons, i.e. bitmap pixs are of course not installed. How does one do that????
My conception is that when I open a map on the Nuvi the icons will be there if that particular area has a "POI" that I downloaded and installed. This is how a Map Guide(a regular old fashion paper map....yup some of us still use 'um) from Harley works. Open their guide to a certain map and the locations of different "dealers" are marked with the "Bar & Shield"????? ...Thanks mtanen

You have to load the bmp

You have to load the bmp file along with the custom poi.Put in the same folder as your custom poi and name it the same as the custom poi except for the extension.Note you will need to zoom in to 300 ft to see the icon.If you select go to it will show once you get close to destination.

>My Pois=Main folder
>>Wal-mart.csv
>>Wal-mart.bmp
