On my new Tom Tom 1605M I was wanting to add a custom Icon for my car like I have on older Tom Toms. Can this be done and how? I tried searching the forum but came up empty.
 
It's done this way, using your favorite tool for creating bmp graphics:

1. Create the image to a size of 80x80 pixels.
2. Give the image a solid red background (RGB 255,0,0). That will cause the background area to be 'transparent' in the icon on the screen (the map will show through).
3. Save the image as a 24 bit .bmp

Now, save that to the old unit in the folder called art \ cars and use the transfer assistant again to move the icon to your new unit.
 
Nope. No direct access to the file system on these newer units.
 
Thanks, I guess I will have to keep my old one just for this purpose then. Only reason I upgraded was to get a large screen and lifetime updates. I hated paying for new maps.
