    Default TomTom Icon

    Well, I noticed with the newer patch to my TomTom that it had new car icons instead of just the arrow.

    So, being curious, I looked into it, and using the toon cars from here, you can make your own supra icon!

    It's a BMP, and if you go into your TomTom manually, put it in the art\cars folder.

    Doubt this is gonna get tons of hits being in this part of the forums... but it is the right place.

    Anyways, here's a picture through the TomTom app (you can use the device through the computer), and I uploaded the actual icon so it will stay a .bmp

    Enjoy!

    Wow that's pretty cool, wonder if my D3 could do that. Does it only work from the back, or does it work from overhead too?

    Nope, can't change the symbol in the overhead view. Not that I like the overhead view AT ALL, so I never use it...

    Can you do this with the Garmin Nuvi?

    There is, unseen by most, a side of the Supra that is just as real, but not as brightly lit. A Dark Side.

    If I had one to mess with I might be able to figure it out...

    If you hunt around in the unit manually (like I already mentioned, they're like large flash drives) and find the icon for the your location, you might be able to change it.

    Meh. Did some digging. The Garmin units use a very different file format - not a conventional picture, it's actually a crapload of pics squashed together, so they can do the 360 degree rotation bit.

    I'd need to find a decent Mk3 wireframe, then render 72 images as it rotates through the full 360 degrees, then convert those stills into the right file format.

    However, they do already offer a crapload of icons: http://www8.garmin.com/vehicles/bund...lvehicles.html
