    If you're using POILoader:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    Custom Icons

    Custom icons can be used with POIs on a device. The icons display on the map to mark a POIs location. The POI Loader integrates the .bmp image file into the .gpi while loading. Custom image files must be in the same directory as the .csv or .gpx files for POI Loader to process them correctly. The image must also be in the proper format, size, and color palette:

    Format .bmp file type
    8 or 16 bit RGB color palette
    24x24 pixels in size
    Transparency color is magenta RGB: R=255, G=0, B=255
    The name must be identical to the .csv or .gpx file

    It also depend on the GPS unit you have, newer unit can display 48x48 icon. But I don't know if POILoader would allow you create it. I know Garmin Content Creator does via .xml

    Note: The size is up to 24x24; I often use 22x22 which is the size used for TomTom so I get consistent icons for both products

    Garmin very loves 22x22 plus transparent 1px of border
    Love your wife? Buy yourself a GPS for answering to her favorite question: "Dear, where are you?".
