poi icons help

Hi guys quite new at using forums but have so far found all the information posted very intersting.

Is it possile to have more than 1 poi icon showing? I am using OS V27.1 with 2006-2 + Speed Camera. I can get the speed camera icon showing but when i select another the speed camera icon disappears. I would like another poi icon showing at the same time. Thanks

AFAIK, the only way to do this would be to merge the POI files - thats OK if you have tomtom files but not sure how you would go about doing it for the BMW in-built ones unless you replaced them with one of the freely available POI's at pocketGPSworld etc.

What's needed is a 'decompiler' for the BMW format POI's that turns them into ASC or OV2 format

As far as I know, it's only possible to get one category selected at the same time.

One trick that maybe doesn't completely solve your issue is to create multiple categories, some with individual themes, and then categories with merged themes.
For example, a single category for "Radars: 50", another for "Radars: 100", etc. Then a category with "Radars" with all radars together.

What doesn't solve your issue is that then you'll see all radars, but won't know the speed of each icon.
