This discussion topic is used for collaboration on the upkeep and improvement of the Icon Library.
You can provide feedback and suggestions for files in the Library area by replying to this topic.
New additions to the library will be announced here.
I sent you my email addy, I have been talking to Jon about making it possible to submit bmp icons the same way you would a csv or gpx file. I am not sure when it can be added because our main focus is on database improvement right now.
I am more than willing to assist in making Icons as well. I teach PhotoShop, so these are pretty easy for me to bang out.
It's the least I can to ... try to contribute to this great 'community' in some way! I am new to this gps world and still not so proficient at producing POI files ... but, I'll get there too!!
Let me know if you need help with any, Bobkz.
I will take you up on it.. Thanks for the offer!!
(And now I know who to ask about Photoshop - I have CS3 Desiner Pro)
I just uploaded new icons from djs:
Maple leaf (good for maple syrup locals)
Here are the icons that were added this afternoon and this evening.

Hi Miss POI,
I just sent you more Icons for yourgreat Collection. This Batch are all Company Logos, Alot of them can be used for the POI files you have on line alreay, Rest people can create the ppoi files to go with them..
I have just gone through all of those and will be adding them too. I am putting a hold on Icon submissions for now until I catch up on these ones.
Since you went on vac. I had to keep ya a little busy .. Just a little..
Beside, I dont have any more for now and will take me a while to find and clean up more for you.. for a while, I will just look for ones that will go with POI file that are on line, or only requests now..
I just emailed to you a few new restaurant icon BMP files:
If anyone needs these before they get posted, email me, and I will send them along to you....
How do I download the whole list at once???
Is there a way???
Looking for a dog icon. Can you help
I can make one for you
One at a time is the way to go.. Just get the ones ya need..
if djs cant find the proper dog, I might be able to help too. Let us know and who knows what you will get.. 101 dogs to deal with ?!?!?
We all do try to help who needs it!
Beagle, but I am flexible.
I made 3 quick Beagle Icons. I will e-mail them to Miss POI so that she can post if anyone else is interested in these.
I forwarded the icons to the gentleman that requested them.
I added a few new icons 6 days ago that never got announced so I will tell you about them now.
Bobkz submitted the following Icons:
Acapulco Mexican Restaurant
Arabica Coffee House
BJ's Wholesale Club
Blockbuster Video Store
Bob Evans Restaurant
I have a lot more to add from Bobkz, he basically just went down our list of POI Files and made a bmp icon for everything. We love you Bobkz, you are amazing. Some day I will have all these up and linked to there POI files.
Your making me blush.. I just like helping in anyway that I can..
Anyone have BMPs for:
I have a bunch of those but haven't had a chance to get them up yet.
and I will make them for gdfaini
I have the following:
trying to clean it up a bit ... could only find very low res versions of this logo to work with.
gdfaini / Miss POI - what "Metro" Icon are you looking for?
Specifically, I was looking for the Washington Metro icon, but the NYC one would be cool too.
I have e-mailed Wash. DC Metro, NYC MTA and a Navy Federal icon to Miss POI.
Feel free to send me an e-mail (contact thru my profile) if you want me to e-mail these to you.
(edit) : I just added the Philly Septa, Chicago CTA, and the San Fran area BART logos to the list of icons that Miss POI now has.
Any other requests??
Those of you breathlessly waiting for the bmp to accompany the new ACBL Duplicate bridge Clubs - US file will get relief soon as I have emailed the image to the eminent Miss Poi.
Thanks for posting my speed bmps. If anyone needs higher rates, I can create those too. Please note that I based them on bdodds 35mph bmp.
Miss POI, Would it be okay to ask you to eMail these 4 bmps to me?
They are in your inbox;)
Ok I had some time to chisel away at some of my emails that contain BMP Icon submissions. Here is what got added today.
Iwwill7999 submitted the following:
Iwwill7999 & Bobkz Submitted:
djs submitted the following:
Tim Horntons 2
Atlanta Bread Company
gdfaini submitted the following:
Speed Limit signs 15 mph, 20 mph, 25 mph, 30 mph, 40 mph, 45 mph, 50 mph and 55 mph.
Stink ten + one (yes I know I am anal retentive and this was my creative way of keeping it in order)
If you have submitted a BMP Icon in the last few weeks and it has not been added yet I apologize for the delay. Things are pretty busy here at the POI Factory and as the traffic to the site grows, and the amount of work to be done grows, the number of staff does not. There are still only 2 of us doing all the behind the scenes work.
Thanks for your patience.
How about some motorcycle icons and a BMW icon, perhaps the BMW roundel.
e-mailed Miss POI a BMW Icon for you. You can e-mail me if you would like me to fwd. you prior to posting.
What Motorcyle icons would you like ... let me know and I'll see what I can do!
I just forwarded the icon that DJS sent me, thanks DJS for taking care of that. I hope to get more time later to put up more icons.
I created a Metro icon yesterday, and will submit it soon. Actually, I created multiple icons - one for each line. I also created separate icons for stations that serve multiple lines (the blue & orange and green & yellow stations in downtown DC, the blue & yellow stations in Arlington/Alexandria, Metro Center, Gallery Pl-Chinatown, Fort Totten, and L'Enfant Plaza).
Here are todays updates in the BMP Icon department:
djs gave us the following:
99 Cents Only
Texas Land & Cattle
MikeyG75 gave us:
Brentrn gave us:
Restaurant (knife and fork)
MaryvilleTim gave us:
I will be adding more in the coming days;)
I make a favorite for each of the AWAY soccer fields that we have to go to. I'd love a special icon for them...if anyone has time to do it.
we have a soccer ball in the libary here http://www.poi-factory.com/node/5113
I made some soccer goals for you, 6 to choose from. You'll have to see which you prefer. I don't want to send all six to Miss POI if they don't work for ya.
If you prefer a soccer "field" as you requested, green with white center circle/goal box etc I could try that. Not sure how that would turn out in a 24x24 size though.
If you think one or more might be worthy to add to the Icon Library, let me know so I can send to Miss POI.
Just identify by number from left to right, #1,#4,#5 etc.
Edit...there is now one soccer "field" there as well.
Spider_elliot gave us:
Washington State Ferry Terminals
Washington Mutual Bank
Giscard gave us:
fde1 gave us:
Djs and Giscard gave us:
Bobkz gave us:
Pep Boys Autoparts
I still have some more to get out of my inbox tomorrow;) It has been a productive day at the factory:)
I haven't heard from jmeents so, if you'd like to add any of the soccer goals or the soccer field bmp's, to the library have at it. Help yourself to any of the other icons as well.
todays additions to the icon library are:
Bob's Big Boy (2)
Revolutionary War Sites
someone uploaded Shell Station and I am waiting to find their user name.
I should have more coming out tomorrow. Bobkz, I am finally going to get through your huge stack!!! I will also get a new soccer net up too.
Thanks for making this site for everyone to stare, share, and to benefit.
How do I upload the Icon BMP I made to go with my POI file I uploaded.
I sent you the info;)
I just used the new icon for the National Parks and the also the one for the Cracker Barrel.Followed the instructions on the faq and feed back on this forum and had no problems.Had no idea that this could even be done until I found this sight.I have just started out and have discovered a lot of new ideas to make the my gps unit more in line with my preference.Thanks for the information.
do I upload my icons? I made one for the POI I just posted and can't figure how to upload it.
I sent you the submission info;)
I notice that the built in Garmin POI icons don't all display as a square graphic. For example, the Red Lobster icon shows just as a lobster shape, not as a lobster on a square background.
Does anyone know if you can do this with uploaded bmps? I tried using the background eraser in Paint Shop, but the background of the icon still showed as white on the garmin.
