I have a Camper 770 LMT-D (6.95 inch screen). I've been looking at the various sizes of POI icons that appear on my screen. There are currently three:

24x24 Pixels, these are the older custom POIs that I used in my TomTom
44x44 Pixels, these are the newer custom POIs for my PGPSW speed cameras
62x61 Pixels, these are the built-in POIs

I set my Garmin to "Screenshot" (Settings | Display | Screenshot - ticked), pressed the camera icon in the top right hand corner, and then connected the Garmin to the computer and looked at the .png files in the "Screenshot" folder.

When I looked at the .png files and zoomed in enough for the pixel gridlines to show, I found that the built-in POI icons are 62 x 61 (i.e. 62 pixels wide and 61 pixels high).

POI icons that have a different height than their width sounds a bit strange, but I've measured several times and always come up with 62x61. So I have a few questions:

1. Is 62x61 correct, or have I got it wrong?
2. Do other sized Garmin (i.e. not 6.95 inch screens) also have 62x61 icons?
3. I shall be experimenting with creating my custom POIs as 62x61, has anybody else already done that and if so did the POIs look OK?

Regards,
