I got the new Semi truck

I got the new Semi truck icon up on the library tonight, I named it Semi Truck instead of weigh station so that it is more generic and can be used for other things.

Miss Poi

working on more icon..

found even more icons that will be great here..

Miss POI, what size do you need them? I have them in 16x16 now..

Once I recheck them I will upload..

BMP question

I have set up folders for my different POI's now can i just add the POI Icon to the appropriate folder?

Garmin 660; Nintendo DS soft carry case, YM, rd1chaos, Blackberry PIN 30154995, way too many gadgets to list here.

Bob, The ones in the library

Bob,

The ones in the library are 24X24 or smaller, lets stick with the larger size and if people would like they can shrink it once they download it from the site. It is always easier to go smaller then bigger I think.

Miss Poi

Yes. Be sure that you name the file correctly for each POI file.

Where do the folders go?

Where did you make these subfolders at? We looked everywhere on our 660 and can't find any icons being used by Garmin.

.

You create the folders on your PC.

LOL :) OK now I'm really

LOL smile OK now I'm really confused smile

So I make this folder on my PC that says (for example) "McDonalds" - and inside of it will be a bmp icon of the McDonalds logo called McDonalds.bmp, right?

Then what's next? Point to them with POILoader?

Also, how does the 660 know when to use those icons, and where to put them in the GPS maps?

.

Be sure you have read the getting started and faq sections. The links are at the top of the page.

Also, at the top of the page are links to the Icon and Sounds pages. On those pages are detailed instructions on the use and installation of custom icons and sounds.

But, the basic steps are.

Create a folder on your PC for ALL your POI files and the associated files that you want.

Download the POI files, bmps, and sound files (if applicable) that you want to load on your GPSr.

Put all the files in your POI folder on your PC. You can create subfolders in the main folder if you want and these will show up as categories on your GPSr.

Name the bmps and sounds appropriately (see those pages for the details).

Run POI Loader and point it to the folder in which you have placed your POIs.

VOILA! The bmps will show up as custom icons for your POIs.

How to upload

Do we still just e-mail icons to you, or is there a way to create content? I have some new ones for AZ and yet another red light icon.

New Icons?

Is there a way to see what the newest icons are? If not, can that be added?

National Park Icons

Speaking of new icons, I would like to see some National Park Icons.

Donald,

If you look at the Icons in the library there are a few that would be perfect for national parks. I have given most of the icons generic names so that they can work for multiple things. Look at all the tree icon files, those would work well.

Miss Poi

I have added a few more

I have added a few more icons this week, here is the list of new ones.

VW Dealerships

Miss Poi

BMPs

Is there a way to associate a new Bitmap with a preinstalled poi?

Like, is there someway to point the Radio Shack pois to the bmp file I just loaded to the unit?

I have a Nuvi 350.

Thanks a lot. Great site.

.

Nope. There's no customizing you can do with the built in POIs like that.

BMP

Thank you, Motorcycle Mama. You saved me a lot of headaches trying.

Baskin Robbins

I just uploaded 3 different versions of baskin robbins BMP Icons thanks to theTraveler. I will be working on speed signs now.

It was named "Camping.bmp"... smile

Miss Poi

not really, I just like to keep busy and love to work with grahic programs.. I love a good challange.

Also When I see a pic that I think I can use I save it for future use. Alot of those bmp that you see came as a real icon file that I use when I roll out other app to our users. so I just change them and share them..

BTW Bacth programs are a great thing..

So, Can you use any of them??!! lol
