    Yes, you have create the folders.
    I use icons in .bmp with 146x146 dpi, 44x44 pixel.
    Important is the path in the .kml file
    Example:

    Open the file with an editor (I use notepad ++) and compare your file with mine (only beginning and end)
    Additionally look at # 4 and # 6

    Hi

    Can you help me with my POI?
    I download POI from poiplaza.com
    In my Primo and Nextgen i can't see icon.
    I can see poi, but only with globe icon.
    I made folder content/userdata/poi for .kml file and the icons to content/userdata/usericon for .bmp file.

    Maybe .kml file is corrupted?

    Thx in advance
