icon will always remain the same width and height, if you want an icon scaled to the map, use:(sizeInMeters * 0.15) * 10^(abs log (ctrlMapScale _ctrl)) for width and height (guessimated).

If you want only text with no icon, you can use "#(argb,8,8,3)color(0,0,0,0)" as texture.

Be careful when using this command. Unlike map markers, the draw commands can decrease your framerate.

This command doesn't seem to play nice with onEachFrame. It seems to draw on the main screen while maintaing position relative to the map position
Example: onEachFrame { findDisplay 12 displayCtrl 51 drawIcon ['iconStaticMG',[1,0,0,1],getPos player,24,24,getDir player,'Player Vehicle',1,0.03,'TahomaB','right']; };

If you unPBO the following addon:
@ui_f_data.pbo
You can find the possible icons inside this folder:
ui_f_data\map\vehicleicons
For example:
If you want to use "iconman_ca.paa" you will write "iconman" on the texture string.
