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.

Then, 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).
