Well, the easy way would be to create your Custom Icon and place it in the same folder as your POI file (GPX, CSV). You must name the Custom Icon the same name as your POI file. For example; BMW Dealers.GPX = BMW Dealers.BMP.

When you use the POILoader to create the GPI file and load it to the GPS, POILoader will look for a any BMP files of the same name as the POI data and assign the icon to ALL of the POI's within that file (BMW Dealers.GPX).

Your Custom Icon must meet Garmin's Custom Symbol requirements.
