I'm new in this forum and especially for a question about TourGuide's and GPI Icons.
Therefore already a big thanks for any help.
First the easy bit, the Icons
According to Garmin's website (https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=g ... LNr3BP8m36) it should be max 24 x 24 and Magnete should be used as transparent color.
A GPI with such an Icon can be created using the Garmin PoiLoader successfully, but on the XT the Icon is very small (in comparison to other internal Icons) and icon is shown somehow invers.
When blowing up the Icon using Mac (Big Sur) Preview from 24x24 to 48x48, the Garmin PoiLoader crashes.
Any Ideas or tips here to create bigger and transparent Icons for the XT ?
Now the difficult one.
My GPX contains around 4'000 waypoints.
For 99% I have a image and for 100% a small mp3 Audio file.
Target is to create a TourGuide file according to https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=v ... H6Tsia7hm5
My folder structure looks like:
Code: Select all
TourGuide-XXX/ |--> TourGuide-XXX.gpx |--> TourGuide-XXX.bmp |--> TourGuide1/ |--> TourGuide1.jpg |--> TourGuide1.mp3 |--> TourGuide2/ |--> TourGuide2.jpg |--> TourGuide2.mp3 |--> TourGuiden.../ |--> TourGuide....jpg |--> TourGuide....mp3
Code: Select all
<link href="TourGuide-1/TourGuide-1.jpg"/> <link href="TourGuide-1/TourGuide-1.mp3"/>
After load in Zumo XT, I notice that while driving and passing such a POI, on the right side a window pop up showing me the name and the image of this waypoint, but does not play the mp3. The right sided pop up remains till I close it. Btw. showing this pop up is great, like it.
When creating the GPI file with and without the mp3 Files, I see a huge different in GPI file size, so I can assume that the mp3 files are integrated.
Does anyone gets TourGuides on XT up & running ?
Any help welcome.
