Size of BMP files

 

First of all I want to thank everyone who is working on creating the BMP files. They are great!
I don't know if I am the only one with this problem, but some of the files are over 24 pixels wide and they show up distorted on my Nuvi360. I resized them to 24 pixels wide and they work great. I don't know if the size restrictions are different for the various GPS units out there, but this is what is happening with mine.
Apparently, the file doesn't have to be exactly 24x24, but neither the height or the width can be over 24.
I just thought I would throw this out there in case others were experiencing the same problems I did.

Three Files

I found three files where they came out distorted.

Harley-Davidson
I-Hop
Purple Grapes

I didn't download all of the files, so I can't speak for them.

Cracker Barrel

Hi Miss Poi,
The cracker barrel bmp also comes out distorted due to its size. Thanks for all the helpful info on this site you guys have done a great service to newbies like myself.

From what I understand, they don't have to exactly 24x24 but can be anything smaller than that. Also, I've found that while the Icons look good on the computer @ 24x24, it's actually really big on the unit. 16x16 looks best on the actual units' map but looks messed up on the computer.

The other issue is that the "magic color" for transparency doesn't work for all units even if it's on the bmp.

Most of you probably know this but I'm just throwing it back out.

Cracker Barrel

I resized the Cracker Barrel one for my GPS to 24x16, and it looks great on the nav screen.
