 +===== How do you add/merge bmp poi files? =====
 +By [[https://​zenec.naviextras.com/​shop/​mvnforum/​printthread?​thread=1746|danero2005]] ​
 + 
 +**why must you create a spr file?​** ​
 +It indicate to igo how the image should look like.
 +
 +**how do you create a spr file?​** ​
 +Very simple
 +
 +take an existent spr file from branding and see if it is according to your images like this
 +
 +if image is 22x22 (for me not recomended)
 +
 +BmpFlags = 0
 +DefFlags = ALPHA_PIXEL | ALPHA_LAYER
 +DefPhase = 1
 +Stripes = 22
 +DefAlpha = 22
 +
 +if image is 32x32 (recomended as it looks more clear)
 +
 +BmpFlags = 0
 +DefFlags = ALPHA_PIXEL | ALPHA_LAYER
 +DefPhase = 1
 +Stripes = 32
 +DefAlpha = 32
 +
 +and just duplicate it for every image you have.
 +
 +**I understand that the bpm file must be 24x24...but I find that just putting a file like this in the userdata\poi folder won't do the trick...what else needs to be done?​** ​
 +As I said ,files - in this case .bmp files ,should not exceed 32x32 pixels, i have seen 20x22,​24x24,​30x22,​32x32,​ and every file worked fine.
 +About the question where to put them :
 +Open igo folder and you will find branding.zip,​ in the zip you will find different types of reso and two other folders "​common"​ and "​icons"​.
 +Well in the common folder you need to place the .bmp and .spr files both in main and in night folder, and in the icons you must have the "​map"​ of the poi icons.There will be a file poi.icons which opens in notepad and there you will put the link to the newly added icons.
 +
 +It sould look almost like this --- example:
 +
 +[Community.Police_Station]
 +$poi_mapdistant.bmp
 +$police.spr
 +police.spr
 +
 +**is there a link that describes how to map poi icons with kml files?​** ​
 +That is too easy
 +
 +Put the .kml files of your wish in the IGO8\Content\Userdata\Poi folder, then push the edit button and enter in the poi settings, up it is the distance you like the poi to be seen and in the bottom is the icon tab to choose for the kml file
