    TomTom One 3rd Edition - Can't change Car Symbol

    I'm not familiar with what you describe but since the name of the thread is "TomTom One 3rd Edition...", I assumed that's what you have. If that's the case, new TomTom firmware added a car symbol menu.

    TomTom One 3rd Edition - Can't change Car Symbol

    Then I would suggest using a high quality imaging editing program like PhotoShop and making absolutely sure your custom file is identical in every way... same file type, same number of pixels, etc. Not sure if the car symbols are GIF, PNG, BMP, or whatever, but just changing the file name...

    TomTom One 3rd Edition - Can't change Car Symbol

    You don't need TomTom Heaven anymore. The latest firmware for the TT ONE 3rd Ed gives you a car symbol menu and allows more symbols simply by placing them in the proper directory. There you go, that's a pretty big difference and the unit probably doesn't have the memory or processing power...

    Missing Expressway IS a bigger problem

    That's good to know. Thanks. What's this guy talking about, I wonder?

    Missing Expressway IS a bigger problem

    What possible excuse could they have for not implementing something that's been in the pipes (validated by Navteq & Teleatlas) for about a year other than "they're backed up" with other updates? I bought my TomTom just two weeks after the road opened so of course it's not on mine. But the...

    Missing Expressway IS a bigger problem

    I'm fairly certain Teleatlas & Navteq have it correct. (Edit: verified... both have I-355 complete) From what the other person is saying, it's just still missing from the TomTom's latest map.... therefore yet another TomTom issue. :mad:

    Missing Expressway IS a bigger problem

    Google managed to get 355 updated within 2 or 3 months of it opening. This I didn't understand either since IL proactively handed over the detailed plans and surveys to the major mappers months before it opened. Even paper maps were printed and on the shelves when it opened. I agree...

    TomTom Home, Apple Macintosh and mapshare?

    That should not make any difference at all. TT Home for Mac is considered a "Universal Application"... ... it works equally poor on my new Intel and older PPC Macs alike. I have the same problems and get the same errors with both.

    TomTom Home, Apple Macintosh and mapshare?

    This won't make you feel any better and I don't excuse TomTom but at least you get a proper error message explaining why it won't work. Mine used to work but now tries to install a special file while giving an "unspecified installation error". Seriously, no Mac support at all would be...

    TomTom Home, Apple Macintosh and mapshare?

    I kept my old 1.6 version installed but unfortunately it's not working very well anymore... stalls while trying to update something. I tricked it into running Virtual TomTom by choosing "Operate TomTom" before plugging it in. It works, however, every 10 seconds or so, I get some kind of an...

    TomTom Home, Apple Macintosh and mapshare?

    I can't believe this is still balled up on the Mac. Virtual TomTom was actually finally working on TT Home version 1.6.020 on my MacBook. Then version 2 broke it. :mad: I installed TT Home version 2 for Mac a few months ago and when I try to use the Virtual TomTom feature, I get a...

    TomTom Bicycle Battery Pack

    Thank-you for the suggestions. I don't bike enough in uncharted areas to justify buying a second dedicated GPS though. I usually stick to the mapped roads. However, just the idea of plugging your TomTom into any 12 Volt source with the standard USB plug and car adapter should give people...

    Map 23 days out of date/can't apply map share

    Read my post above. From what I'm seeing, the latest version of TT Home is working on both Mac & PC equally bad. I'm considering going back to the 1.6 version on the Mac.

    7.15 Map update. Want to know if a street exists, check here.

    My mistake.... it just wasn't showing in your original screen-shot. Thanks for clearing up the confusion.

    Map 23 days out of date/can't apply map share

    After updating both my Mac and PC to the latest version of TT Home, PC version says I'm 4 weeks out of date and Mac version says I'm 5 weeks out of date. Each displays a totally different number of available updates. Both refused to download any updates... both said NO DOWNLOADS AVAILABLE...
