    hello all, I upgraded my TomTom XL, which I was able to download different vehicle icons. I upgraded to a TomTom VIA 1515TM. This GPS already has some different vehicle icons on it. I wanted a certain vehicle that I downloaded on my other GPS. I can not figure out how to download vehicle icons on this GPS. Please help, am I able to download vehicle icons on this GPS?

    Think so. Connect the device to the computer with MyDriveConnect running. Depending upon the version of MyDriveConnect you have, click on the US flag on the top right of the screen or a cog wheel there. One of the links you'll see is 'Manage Community content'. Click it to get access to a screen where you can add car images among other things.

    I clicked on the “cog wheel” & did not see any options saying “Manage Community Content”

    Sorry, right click on the small tomtom icon in the notification area next to the clock on the computer. You should see it as an option there (device has to be connected to the computer with MyDriveConnet running).
