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.

Cheers,
Ah! Thanks!
