Do you want your vehicle on your TomTom?

Post by ian on Tue Jul 30, 2013 11:24 am

Whilst sitting through a thunderstorm yesterday I was trawling the internet when I came across a site that tells you
how to install a photo of your own vehicle onto the tomrom screen instead of the little blue arrow. This gives the appearance 
of you travelling along.

Silly but I liked it ...so much so that I spent several hours putting it on.

It actually is easier to do once you have the image sorted out.

This is what it looks like on the tomtom:

To achieve this you first need a photo of your MH

You then have to adapt it:

Then install it on the TomTom.



There is a Link

So if you have nothing to do on a rainy day......

If anyone wants to save the trouble of having their own motorhome photo and adapting it you can pm me and I'll send you mine.

Cheers Ian

Our TomTom already has a number of built-in vehicle 'rears' including some motorhome types. When I can be bothered, I either select the nearest to our Pollensa or else the silver estate that's nearest to our Vectra.  
And when I want to kid myself I can select one of the flashy sports cars . . .  f1 

And it just takes a few seconds, not many hours!   up!
