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 if any;
  • Image dimension: 32px × 32px recommended.

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

By grouping some custom icons in a sub-folder, they will appears in a custom icon category.

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 see your waypoint with the custom icon (size of 64px × 64px used in this example).

The icon centers correspond exactly to the waypoint locations.
