POI icons for high and standard resolution devices

Paulo Carvalho
Greetings,

   Is it possible to design a TYP file such that we get 48x48 POI icons for high-res devices and 24x24 ones for lower resolution PNDs like Nuvi 255w?
    I know it is possible for NT maps such as City Navigator maps since I've seen the same map installed in both device classes and there seem to be some kind of automatic icon switching.
    My point is that whether it is possible to compile a single gmapsupp file against a single TYP file that works on both resolutions with mkgmap.
    So far, the obvious solution is to compile HD and SD versions of the same map, each compiled against different TYPs.
    I think this is of some importance because everything has to be done twice: compile time, tests, TYP maintenance, upload, FTP quota usage, ...  not to mention that the end user may not readily know which version one has to download.

all the best,

Paulo Carvalho

The NT TYP files you are referring to  store such icons with up to 8 smaller  'sub icons' in a separate block compacted quite differently from the run of the mill types. Unfortunately, such types can only be accessed within a NT framework - even the latest version of MPC is unable to accommodate .
