I hate to bring this one around again but....

I just received 7 new Live 1535 units that I have to put a custom POI into. I have created the poi using 'MakeOV2' and using My TomTom installed the POI. The resulting symbol on the map is a red square. The .bmp is 22x22, a dpi of 72 and a color of 256. Both the .ov2 and .bmp name are the same.

I have not seen any recent postings on this issue on the newer units that are updated through My TomTom. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

1535 LIVE; Via 1605; Go 50; Go 520
And the .bmp file is named EXACTLY the same as the associated .ov2 file?

Yes it is. To be sure I recreated the poi file and used the .bmp that was created by 'makeov2'.

Change the colour depth to 24 bit and make sure you haven't got a double bmp extension applied to the file name i.e POI FILE.bmp.bmp as this is easy to do - Mike
