new & interesting places for your GPS

A question about map symbols

 

I was wondering if it is possible to add map symbols to my nuvi 200w. I have a bunch of custom symbols that I could use, but I can't seem to find anywhere that they are loaded to.

??? Any ideas ???

Thanks.

Custom POI

You can only have symbols for any custom poi that you add to your gpsr. These need to be bmp, about 22x22. Name them the same as your csv or gpx file (with the different file extension). You can't change the icons for the map database.

There are bmp files under icons at the top of the page.

I don't think you can.

I don't think you can. I have even selected a symbol new in MapSouce and copied the favorite back to the nüvi. That didn't change the symbol.

Are you asking about adding custom symbols for your Favorites? Unfortunately, you can't do that with these models.

There's a way to use xImage to make custom icons for MapSource, but they won't transfer to these units.

yes I am talking about for

yes I am talking about for the favorites, how there are a bunch of symbols you can use for your different places. I have some that are more appropriate for what I need, however I can't find anywhere on the unit where these images are stored.

If you're referring to POI's in your Favorites, you can change the icon. You can do this by selecting the POI, edit->Change Symbol.

Yep, you can't add icons for your Favorites. You are stuck choosing from the options that are preloaded in there.
