another great addition to the FAQ area.

I have linked this thread to the Tom Tom FAQ area, great job equality. I changed the title of the thread also;)

Cool

Just be aware that the actual image placed on the device is a 24 bit bmp NOT jpg as shown above. For some reason it changed to jpg when I uploaded to my image host.

Image Format

The Image Format is as follows:
Bitmap format (*.bmp)
24-bit color
80 x 80 pixels
Transparency color (shroud) is true RED
(R: 255, G: 0, B:0)

Hope that helps you creative types....

So far only TomTom 7 (default support) and some limited PNA (TomTom one xl etc, had custom loader support).

FYI, with the newer Navcores, there is no need to use the web site quoted above. MS Paint, Corel Photo-Paint or Adobe Photoshop is all you need.

I really like the Garmin

I really like the Garmin 360, nice form factor.Not sure if it’s much better as a GPS than the 200 series, didn’t do a side by side, but has SIRFIII and other features that the 2XX don’t have.

...changing vehicle on TomTom 130S

Anyone have a problem changing the default vehicle. On mt Tom Tom ONE 130S, no matter which vehicle I choose it only uses the default vehicle.

Any ideas?

Some 'vehicles' I made for my TT VIA 1535

I wouldn't mind sharing a few 'vehicles' I made for my TT VIA 1535. Big Foot, Patrick Star, Spongebob, and a flying witch. If anyone would want to see them, how would I share? And I'm having a blast making them. If anyone has something they want, I'd be willing to try. smile

Sorry for being a newbie here, just can't figure out how to share a file...

You can upload the image files to a site like ImageShack and then post their links here.
