    Afraid not. Only the default tomtom provided icons are available.

    Hi
    @klaasjissink

    [h3]Displaying Personal POIs on the Driving View/Map[/h3]Be aware... You can't install the POI associated .BMP files
    You can only use the Tomtom supplied generic Icons
    But you can use one icon for for more than one POI category i.e... place all your fuel categories under one Icon, then if you tap on a nearby 'say' Fuel Icon a Quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot Icon for more options & more Information for that specific POI

    [h3]Setup... After installing your Personal or 3rd party POIs....[/h3]Tap 4Dot (....Menu) --> Settings --> Appearance --> Show POI lists on the Map
    It says a restart is required, but I've never found it to be necessary
    After choosing the Generic Icon.. Tap the coloured (^) Icon screen top right... Pinch zoom the Map, the Generic POI Icons all appear live and working
    Note... The Generic POI Icons disappear when the Map is highly zoomed out, and reappear as you zoom in again

    See Update 17.1...https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/go-wi-fi-6200-5200-620-520-52-professional-via-53-482/new-software-17-1-available-now-1021781/index1.html#post1161180

    Then instead you'll probably miss your destination ;)

    Hi The tomtom via 135 beats the socks off all the latest tomtom's but alas support is no longer available, but you can asign your own icons to poi's, it's easy to use, tap on navigate to, it shows you a favorits screen tap on that it shows you all your saved destinations (which you can add to very easily) tap on any one, in the settings you can show poi's along the route and it does with your own asigned icon, if by any chance you happen to find a very bad road (for caravans etc) ie Winnats pass in the peak district you can put a permanent block on it (your map only) so no matter what destination you choose if it so happens that it would normally route you through Winnats pass, with it blocked it will not route you through it be it to go or return form your destination. If tomtom redesigned the via 135 and kept all of the software but added a few things to it to update it and gave it a 6in screen I for one would buy it
