Loading .bmp map symbol icons to my Nuvi 1350

 

Help! I'm new here - Not sure what I am doing wrong ...

From this site, I have downloaded .bmp icons (map symbols) of some of my favorite places (Starbucks, Borders Books, etc). I have placed them onto a folder on my desktop called Garmin_bmps - now what?

I am confused at using the POI loader, csv files, etc. When I downloaded the vehicles it was EASY! I just put them into the Garmin GPS in the 'Vehicle' folder while it was plugged into my Mac.

How do I add more map symbols?

Thanks smile

I have a Garmin 265.....I created a sub-directory just for downloading CSV and BMP as well as .WAVC or MP3's into the Garmin. Just name the .BMP, MP3,WAV and CSV file the same as the POI file, The POI loader does the rest....

See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25721 for custom pois. If you decide to use voice alerts you will need to use wav files.
