    To save right click and click on save picture as.
    I did not make it in 256 color bmp but it works well on my go 720. If it does not work, then only convert to 256 colors.

    I hope this is what you wanted.

    Try finding a picture of your make of car using Google. I would Google for '2009 Blue Honda Fit - rear view'. Hopefully you'll find one. You may have to search several pages. Copy the image to your desktop (right/click save picture as, etc). Then you'll need to resize the picture and surround the image with a red (255).

    I'm sure there are other ways to do it, but I use Windows Paint (comes with all versions of Windows) and a free program called, "Easy Thumbs". First I use Paint to surround the image (which is usually a jpg) with the framing tool (or box) and allow a little bit of surrounding area around the image. I try to make the new image as square as possible so when I reduce the size to 80 x 80 pixels using 'EasyThumbs' the aspect ration will be correct (sometime 80 x 60 will work too). After framing the image, I 'right-click' on it and 'save to location' and save the new image to desktop (call it what ever you want). Then I open 'EasyThumbs' and resize it to 80 x 80 pixels and again save it (all images are jpg in EasyThumbs). THEN, I use Paint again - load the image, and zoom in to 600 times so I can see a lot of detail. The picture will be fuzzy, but that's normal when blown up to 600 times. I use the different size paint brushes to fill in the surrounding area with bright red (I think the color is 255). I start with the bigger brushes until I get close to the car then switch to smaller brushes. I recheck the image in 'normal size' to see what it looks like. If it's ok, I save the new image... but this time I use the pull-down and select .bmp and 24 bit depth. This is important or it won't work.

    Hope this helps.

    Here's a picture of a light blue Fit:

    Or... dark blue:

    Now here's the dark blue Fit with some of the background removed and using EZ Thumbs - resized to 80 x 80. EZ thumbs converts the image to .jpg. The next step will be to go back and add the red around the car using 'Paint'.

    And here's my final attempt with an 80 x 80 image for your TomTom. I couldn't see any side-view mirrors as the photo was taken pretty close to the back. Hope it works for you. Or... you can try it yourself.
