Did as you said worked great. Then remembered I had downloaded manual as .pdf. The old saying. RTFB. everything was there. Thanks.Nope, its pretty easy. You can add it simply by going through Main Menu>Change Preferences>Manage POI>Add POI>Select the custom Shell POI>and then enter the location via address/long&lat/point on a map etc.
I'm having trouble with the POIs. I've downloaded a few and followed the instructions here. They are in the North_America folder (there's North America and North_America but it looks like the maps are in the one with the _...)
I can't find them in the list of POIs on the TomTom now. Am I missing something? Are they already in other categories? How can I change what category they are in so I can find them?
ETA: I discovered that when I did the Map Update I never removed the old maps. I was installing the POI's into the old map, not the new one. When I deleted the old map and placed the POI's in the correct map directory everything worked. You can use this as a reminder to the new folks unpacking and updating their maps.
what im looking to get is the HSBC bank icon in small enough bmp to i can use it. anyone know how I can make it small enough for it to work or is there a way to convert these to a smaller size. please help
Since you have the image, open it in Irfanview, then Image > Resize, type 40 in the Width field, click OK. If that is not the size you want just go Image > Resize again and change it until you end up with a size you want. (If it became too small and you want it bigger it is best to Open File and redo it with your original else it may get too grainy.) Now, click File > Save as, select a Folder (I use the Desktop until I am done), give it a name. click the down arrow at Save as type:, click BMP, click Save.thanks it is a great program got the logo small enough but can't figure how to save it that small and turn it into a bmp file cause i can't find a hsbc logo to make that small that is already a bmp
