I have the logo, http://www.poi-factory.com/node/4157 I just had not connected it to the page yet;).

I will be putting more chain files into POI Packages this week so that I only have to link things to one cover page.

How About

Why not put "Five" on one line and "Guys" beneath it, increasing the size of the alpha characters to fill out a 24 x24 icon. I have never seen a Five Guys restaurant, but their website doesn't have a favicon and they don't really use a "logo".

That would work, are you volunteering to make it?

FYI: The posted "Wifi 3 BMP Icon" is a Bluetooth icon - Bluetooth is a totally different protocol standard.

Just thought I'd chime in.

I have changed it to reflect the proper use for the icon.

How would you make it?

How would you make it? Couldn't you just use paint and then adjust the size to 24x24?

Thanks Bob for the icons.

Thanks Bob for the icons. I'm trying to get all my poi's with an icon.
Now looking for these-
Karn's Food- http://www.karnsfoods.com/
Giant Food Stores- http://Giantpa.com/
Ramada Inn-
Red Roof Inn-
Kohl's-
Ollie's-
Marshall-
Staples-
and that would be all. If you could make them that would be great.

By the way, how do you make them? Do you just copy the logo off their site and then shrink it?

MapSource Icons

I assigned some icons to my waypoints via MapSource but some did not transfer to my unit because the icons used in MapSource are not found in my unit. Is there a way to transfer the same icons in MapSource to my unit?

.

No. You can't transfer icons from MapSource to the GPS unit.

Why would they offer the

Why would they offer the choice in Mapsource when you cant see it on the unit?

If you change an icon for a waypoint in mapsource

It is downloaded when you download your waypoints (pois), but to my knowledge (which is limited) you cannot download just the icons (without a waypoint associated with it) to your gps....

A matter of semantics.... Yes you can, but no you can't.....????? Huh shock

I assigned an auto repair icon to a waypoint on MapSource. Then when I sent it to my unit, my waypoint shows a grey square instead of the icon selected on MapSource

Hmmmm

I just assigned towtruck icon (the nearest I could find to an auto repair icon), to one of my waypoints and it loaded it to my nuvi 760, was it a custom icon that you used, or one of the ones from mapsource?

Edit: On rechecking the icon it was an auto repair...????

I dont have the unit on me

I dont have the unit on me but if I remember correctly it looked like a car on a lift. There was another icon that didnt load. I assigned a happy face to a waypoint on MapSource and that also didnt load on my unit. I think the unit has to have the same icons as MapSource preloaded for it to work correctly. I could be wrong though

I just tried something else….

I chose an icon that is available in MapSource, but isn’t available on the nuvi 760 (a face icon) as an icon for a waypoint. I then downloaded it to my nuvi, it appears as a black square. It appears that the icons are not downloaded from MapSource, but the nuvi converts it to the similar icon that is available on the unit…. If one isn’t available it puts a black square…

So once again MM is correct… smile

I really should get a life…. rolleyes

But the car service icon is available on both...

Thanks for the reply, so its just not my unit doing that lol I have speant the last few nights messing with it and I am really enjoying this awesome tool!

Other GPS units do have the ability to accept Custom Waypoint icons from MapSource but the vast majority of the newer units don't have this ability. (But that's why it exists in MapSource since the program works with a variety of units.)

Now I have to check my StreetPilot III and see if it accepts waypoint icons from MapSource that aren't in the unit... wink

Why? because I don't have a life.

If I had a life......

Tracking icons

Hi miss POI,

Here's a grab bag of icon related ideas:

Just so we can contribute new content where needed, do you think the new database listing could mark with a symbol the POI that have icons and wav files attached? I was thinking a small picture and a sound symbol at the end of each line in the "Alphabetized List of POI Files" or in a category listing...

Also, to help us select the icons we want, how about a contact sheet like this http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/previews/index_abc.p...?

The image I just linked above contains a 1000 free 16x16 icons, some of which (shopping cart, camera, map, etc) I converted to POI icons (BMP 256, magenta transparency) I just don't know with which files they should be posted here.

So, hoping I'm not boring anyone,

Regards

Simon

If I read correctly, the creator of these icons at:
http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/
requires as part of his license that a link to his site must give him credit.
