    Hallelujah !

        Finally, I can put a name with the face.  This will save a lot of frustration from not being able to distinguish what the 'tiny' symbols represent.

    p.s.    May I suggest that the 'REQUEST' submissions be reviewed and contact with the individual be made regarding those that have been resolved.   I may have stumbled on to this sooner if... 

    Thank you, kindly!!!

    Kind of a strange question, but do you know what other applications actually use that sym tag (in other words, their exported GPX files will come in with similar looking icons)?

    These were based on mapsource icons. Half mile's PCT waypoints had them.

    There ought to be others that use that tag.

    This article was extremely helpful.  It paves the way for me to import data to BCNav in a GPX file exported from my desktop software.  Easy (or automated) edits of the GPX file will ensure that I see the icons I want to see in BCNav.

     

    ON A CLOSELY RELATED SUBJECT, the "bcnav" application folder on my android has an empty "icons" subfolder.  It would seem that this might be for custom icons, but no mention of custom icons is made in this article.  So what indeed would this "icons" subfolder be used for?

    Nathan, is there an updated icon list you can upload here? Many of the icons on my phone don't match what is posted here, and the overall list of icons is not identical. Thanks!
