Adding a icon to 255w


How do I add a custom icon to the list of icons already on the 255W data base from garmin? I have lighthouse icon from POI Factory's list of icons that I would like to use on a site I down loaded from google Maps into my "Favorites". How do I do that or is it impossable?


If you create a custom POI, it is possible.

Name both poi and icon.bmp the same. This is critical!

• lighthouse.gpx (.csv etc.)
• lighthouse.bmp

Add to "x:/Garmin/POI/Lighthouse/" folder on your computer, upload via the POI Loader and that's it.

Thank you Juggernat.

I've seen on previous post that on custom POI's created though Microsoft Excel and notebook it can be done. (haven't done it yet) but a lot of my sites are down loaded though 'Google Maps' and these are the site I'd like to put on the costum Icons. The list of Icons on the pre-loaded page from Garmin are limited.
