New to POI Factory Need Help with BMP

 

Hi all.. I have a Nuvi 1300 and I donloaded a few POI files into my Nuvi via the Poi Loader.. They show up when I go to extras, but I would like them to show up on my main map view while driving. When I touch my main map view and it changes the view they show up there as grey dots.. My Big question is how do I get the BMP into the files and is is possible to get the POI's to show up on the main map view when driving? Thanks in advance!

Click on Icons at top right,

Click on Icons at top right, select icon, right click and save bmp file to same folder as csv file.

Rest Area.csv
Rest Area.bmp

They have to have the same name - some bmp files are named differently from csv/gpx files.

Run PoiLoader. You will have to zoom in to 300 ft level to see icons.

You can look in Getting Started, faq, or search for more info.

I suspect that POI loader is the problem. Version 2.6.0 is being a royal pain on files.

harleymhs, welcome to POI Factory. Both CSV and GPX files can be used with a Nuvi.

What were the names of the .GPX files you were having trouble with? Were they downloaded from the POI Factory? Someone can then help you with your question.
