Default Just got the TomTom Mod!

Picked up a TomTom One (130 i think ill have to look on box in the truck) Saturday! man i love this thing! I think TomTom makes the best GPS... Advance Auto had them for $99!!! The cool part is how i modded the unit! i changed the little arrow that represents you to the backend of my truck!!!

For those with TomToms to do this:

-Take Pic of ur trucks back end
-Upload
-arase background completely and replace with RED (255,000,000) it has to be red or pic wont show up right! the red becomes transparent when on unit!
-Resize to 80 pxl x 80pxl.
-Save as truck.bmp (BITMAP(24-Bit; it has to be 24-bit or wont work!!!)

-Hook up TomTom to computer
-Go to My computer, click on TomTom.
-Locate "art" folder. then find "cars" folder.
-Copy that 24-bit 80 x 80 pic here.
-disconnect and restart TomTom
-go to preferences and change the car icon to ur truck!!

Here is the pic that i used just blown up



And here are the pics of the unit!!
