    This is on W10 pc via Firefox.
    Optimism suggests that this is probably a minor hiccup, so what I hope would my last few questions would be, does the newly created "usericon" file live inside the POI folder - "....content/userdata/poi/usericon" alongside the POIs, or outside as in "...content/userdata/usericon".
    Would the folder 'igoicon' referred to in the sections of code - "...<metadata><igoicon><filename>" need a name change to "usericon", or just remain as it is.
    You should be able to right-click the link and choose to download the target (probably called "save link as.."). Simply clicking the link won't work. For the third you will have some more messing around to do, because I had to put spaces into the link to stop the dreadful forum software messing it up.

    What I said to put into the kml file is correct. If you change it, it won't work.

    Thanks for that - I've downloaded and copied the bmps ok and made what I think are the correct changes to the code, where necessary. Tap, and toilets now don't appear in the POI list - (no problem cos I have all the originals saved.) Wild Camp POIs are in the list and appear on the maps, but the google globe persists. I can only assume I'm missing something crucial or haven't made the right changes to the code.

    The address on the Satnav for the POIs is "...CONTENT/userdata/poi" and "...CONTENT/userdata/usericon" for the bmps.

    The current code for wild camp has the changed code you provided pasted over the original. Here's the code for Tap, where I have made changes -

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <kml xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:gx="http://www.google.com/kml/ext/2.2" xmlns:kml="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
    <Document>
    <name>Wild Camp</name><metadata><igoicon><filename>Wild_Camp.bmp</filename></igoicon></metadata>
    <Folder>
    <name>Tap</name><metadata><igoicon><filename>Tap.bmp</filename></igoicon></metadata><Placemark>

    <Point>
    <coordinates>-5.683225,57.71114,0</coordinates>
    </Point>
    </Placemark>


    and the code for Toilets -

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <kml xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:gx="http://www.google.com/kml/ext/2.2" xmlns:kml="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">

    <name>WC0001</name>
    <description>WC0001</description>
    <Point><coordinates>-1.238892,52.739238,0</coordinates>


    In red is what follows the alterations. My only query - based on guesswork from a bed of ignorance, - given the address of the folder containing the bmps is "usericon", why doesn't this address appear anywhere in the code?

    Thanks again for you persistence and patience with this. And again please feel free to abandon what you may see to be a lost cause

    I don't know how iGo knows where to look for icons. But it does, at least on mine!

    You can also remove ALL the lines that say

    <styleUrl>#m_ylw-pushpin</styleUrl>

    but it only makes the file smaller to remove it: that code doesn't do anything, good or bad.

    Have you restarted iGo since changing the files and installing the .bmp files? Simply suspening and restarting the device won't do.

    Yes to the latter. I'm going to gaze at the code for a while to see if anything jumps - so to speak. ---- Sorted - they work. The icons are quite large - the satnav is a 5" screen, but they are there. The Satnav has igo8 on it, so the folder path for the bmps needs to be ...folder>content\userdata\usericon\whatever.bmp</filename. Perseverance furthers. A million thanks for your help - I couldn't have got there without it

    Ah yes, I did make the icons bigger. I mainly use them on a device with a 9" screen. Er, no. A 10.1" screen, it seems.

    What software do you use to create the icons? I've several graphics progs but none will touch them.

    They were normal icons, made with transparency, so probably .png format. I then used something to convert them to the special RLE encoded .bmp format that iGo uses. I can't remember what i used: only my laptop will remember, but I'll try to look next time I use the laptop.

    Thanks - we're at sea en route to Brittany at the minute, but when I get back I'll have a crack at creating some. I've found a few sites that do file conversions if I can't track down the software.

    Nozatec = iGo Primo

    Just in case this has confused anyone, Nozatec is a very cheap (and excellent value) brand of 5" or 7" tablet which is supplied with iGo navigation software installed. Mostly they are Windows CE devices with resistive touch screens, but recent models are available running Android and with capacitive screens. More or less the same thing is sold under Xgody branding.

    Out of the box, they have out of date maps and the update site you're told to use is also out of date, and also lacks "Lorry Restrictions" data that is essential for routing by size and weight of vehicle. Luckily, complete and current map sets are available for free.
