I am a newbie to this site and have just recently registered and updated my Garmin Nuvi 360. However, when the camera symbol appear it seems to be followed by a grey dot and do not know what this means or how to remove it.
That is interesting.
After dumping Cyclops and loading GPS Data Team POI's everything is normal...voice warning, onscreen camera warning in a box...but no camera icons.
And no dot either.
The dots were definitely there previously and also the appropriately coloured .bmp camera icons also appeared on screen.
Loading sox.exe I get a dos terminal type application that will not open, and error message when loading re the .bmp conversion.
I have the Garmin 1370t and I have the same problem with camera speed icons. It's sad that only one is working, I wanted to have different icons to identify speed cameras and lights cameras. But at least it's working now !
May be a silly question, but are you loading the camera icon (bitmap file) with the GPX file when you use POI Loader? It is not included in the GPX file, you have to add a file of the same name to work. e,g, camera.gpx and camera.bmp match.
I just purchased a 1450t with speed poi's. This was a replacement for Nuvi 250. I did not want to replace newer poi on new unit so just loaded other poi's from 250. To do this I connected the nuvi 250 to computer and copied the poi file to a folder. On the computer I have .gpx and .csv files with same named .bmp files stored in folder names eg caravan parks, camps aus. I then started POI loader and just loaded one folder into nuvi 250. Once completed I copied the .poi file to computer and renamed it as folder name. This was repeated for all the folders I wanted as poi's in 1450. I then copied the original poi file back to the 250 poi directory. Attached the 1450 to USB and copied the newly created poi files from computer
This is a newbie question I'm sure but how do you convert the icon to 8bit in MS Paint.
The choices I have with "save as" are
Monochrome Bitmap (*.bmp;*dib)
16 Color Bitmap (*.bmp;*dib) (that throws a warning that some color will be lost and it does affect some icons more than others.
256 Color Bitmap (*.bmp;*dib)
24-bit Bitmap (*.bmp;*dib)
Then JPEG,GIF,TIFF and PNG
Is 16 Color the same as 8 Bit
To answer my own question... "Saving the image as a "256 colour bitmap" in MS paint should give you an 8-bit image."
And I can now confirm this to be true and works on my 3790T.
I opened the Icon image in paint and saved with the file format 256 color bitmap. Uploaded my POI's with the POI Loader and it now shows icons where it didn't before
