    Default TomTom Vectra Customisation!

    Decided to try out making my own "car icon" for my Tom Tom XL2 IQ Europe today (only £110 in Halfords at the moment and thoroughly recommend!!)

    All you have to do is use MS paint to get a canvas of 80x80 pixels, shrink the picture of the car cropped down to this then paint around the edges in red, which then shows transparent (has to be red 255, 000, 000) which you can do on paint.

    Finished product Well chuffed, looks ace. Will host the icon once i plug my tom tom back in to the PC as i saved it directly to. If anyone wants to use it then feel free to. Will be doing a custom VX start up and shut down screen too and will post when finished!






    Im also going to do an amended version with my number plate written on if i can, as opposed to shrunk down but not sure how good the quality will show it!

    Will upload the BMP later if I remember and will do a welcome and shut down screen too. Bit of a gimmick but makes it more personalised!
