    I have a Sony XNV 770-BT and have uploaded POI's via MyDrive. I am having a problem with some of the icons showing up as red squares on the map and not the icon BMP. When I upload the BMP it says that it has to be no smaller than 16x16 and no larger than 44x44.

    I have checked the BMP's that don't show up and they are within the size limitations. I also have the BMP named exactly the same as the OV2 file.

    This has been going on for some time now.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Rondo

    Thanks for the reply.

    I just checked one the icons that I know isn't showing up and it is 32 bit.

    Can you use an image program to change it to 24 bit and 22x22 pixels. See if that works.

    I am in the process of changing them now. I will upload them and check them out later today and report back.

    Thanks again for your help.

    I didn't drive by a location that has a faulty icon. I will drive by one that I have converted to 24 tomorrow morning on the way to work. I will report back tomorrow even.

    Thanks,

    Rondo

    It worked!!! The icons that I changed to 24 bit show up on he screen perfectly. I'm really happy to get this squared away.

    I have been chasing this issue for quite some time and you are the only one who came up with the answer.

    Thanks again dhn for all your help!!
