I want to have a custom icon for my Jellystone Park Camp Resorts POI files that are posted here. I can save .bmp files, but they don't show up on my Garmin Street Pilot 2730. I was wondering if anybody could create a .bmp file and we can add it to the list here. Possibly something like the one below.
Okay, I stand corrected. I was able to get the one for Jellystone Park Camp Resorts to save, but when I save one that I created for Culvers it does not display, so obviously I am not doing something consistently. I will keep at this for a while to see if I can figure out what I am doing wrong. When I look at bit depth I ahve different numbers between the two. Could that be it?
If I understand the problem correctly here are two things that I can think of:
1) bmp size: try 24 bit, 22x22 pixels (24x24 should also work).
2) Make sure the .bmp is named EXACTLY the same as the POI or it won't show up because it has nothing to associate to.
I created a 24x24 bmp, but I don't know how to upload it.
I do see that my Jellystone shows Bit Depth 24, but the Culvers shows Bit Depth 8. How do I change this?
Jim access the CULVER bmp wherever you created it and just re-save it in 24 bit format instead of 8 bit. That should do the trick!
sam, I'll defer to a GARMIN user on that!

I am adding your icon that Sammig sent me right now:)
