    Few questions, what tom tom did you use? How are you intending to turn off, and thirdley what is the signal like where it is?
    By the way I think it looks great!

    thanks for the coments. I have used a tomtom one 3rd edition.

    when you take the tomtom apart i have soldered two thin wires(kymar) to the on/off switch and then put a push button switch on the top blank next to the radio.

    i have yet to put it in the car as want to get the paint right first. if the signal is bad i will solve this with a antena extension. £10 off ebay and thread it through the apillar.

    once i have got the paint sorted will get some pics up once fitted to my car.

    for a first go i am very happy with it.
