Custom waypoint icons

AlpineQuest has the ability to use custom icons for waypoints.

Icons must be placed in the “icons/” sub-folder of AlpineQuest's main folder (so usually “/sdcard/alpinequest/icons/”), and must meet the following requirements:

  • Maximum file size: 100KB;
  • Image format: PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP. Alpha channel supported;
  • Image dimension: 32px × 32px recommended.

The file name (without the extention) is used as the icon name. If you use an existing icon name, it will be replaced by your custom icon. Names are case insensitive.

Then, custom icons can be selected from AlpineQuest like any other icons:

  • Create a new waypoint;
  • Click on the “Icon” button ;
  • You should see a new “Custom” category ;
  • Select your icon ;
  • Save the waypoint ;

You should now see your waypoint with the custom icon (64px × 64px used in this example).
