    Tomtom iphone 1.5 POI problems

    Hi All,

    It seems that on version 1.5 of TomTom for the iPhone the BMP files for custom POIs are no longer used. The POI's show up with a generic icon in the list where they are enabled and as red squared on the map. Has anyone found a solution to this?

    TIA

    That's not much of a solution ;-) Anyone found out where icons need to go now and what size they need to be?

    Someone else found a partial solution: rename (NOT convert) the bmp files to .png and then copy them in. For the Iphone 4 these may need to be doubled in size (to 44x44 pixels). in the list they still do not show correctly but on the map they show up just fine.

    found this its the same as you said ewok66

    For the warnings that flash up top left make the icons 44x44 and rename them from bmp to png and they work as well, at the end of the POI name you need to add "_X2"

    The icons still don't show correctly in the POI menus but thats something I can live with for the time being and apparantly the icons appear a little small on the iPhone 4 due to the increase in screen resolution.
