I have put some custom POI's of camp sites in CSV format in my 1490T
They work fine however the Icons do not Display.They are 22 x 22 BMP

I have compared them with some other icons that do work the only difference i can see is the ones that work are a much smaller size 384 bytes
resolution 65 dpi bit depth 4

The ones that dont work are 1.94 Kb resolution 96 dpi Bit depth 32

Can anybody help me to solve the problem

I'm not sure what tool you are using. I use POI loader. For POI loader, it takes .gpx and .bmp. When I tried .csv and .bmp it did not work at all.

Thanks very much for reply
I have found out 1 problem was the bmp and the csv files have to be exactly the same name. I also converted the Bmp file to Gif opened it in windows Paint and saved it as a 16 bit bmp this gets the size right down.
It is still not quite right one file shows icon ok and the other 3 just show a little grey circle with magenta corners. Anyhow I will try what you suggested.
Once again, thanks a lot
P.S. I am using POI loader
