Just starting using GPSBABEL yesterday.
I can't find a way to get the a custom symbol in Delorme Street Atlas
2007 to show up when converting a txt file to an1 using your program.
Importing the txt file directly into Street Atlas picks up the symbol as
it is named explicitly in the txt file. When running the text file
through GPSBABEL, I get a Red Flag when I import the resulting an1 file.
I made sure to use the suboption deficon and the name which shows up in
Delorme for our custom symbol, but the resulting an1 still uses red
flags. I was successful using a different symbol (Green Dot). I found
it odd that "Green Dot" worked, but using "Biker" another one of the
original symbols also did not work. What am I missing?
Please note, we created a custom set of symbols for Delorme and added to
appropriate symbol folder. The file name is Distribution Symbols.dim.

GPSBabel doesn't know about your custom symbols. "Only" the 450-ish symbols
that we know about (as in the source tree in an1sym.h) are supported.
If you've modified the dlm file and want to teach GPSBabel about it, see
'make-an1ysym.pl' in the source distribution. If the thought of perl
scripts and rebuilding from source gives you shudders, walk away.
