via 52
Hello!

So I have a bit of a query for all you smarter than me out there - I have a TomTom Via 52 (I think thats what its called) and I want to completely change what is on there. Now - hear me out - Its a touchscreen computer so I was wondering if its possible somehow to put some sort of software on it that would make it act as a sort of in car display (only with like a few buttons but mainly the clock really and the car logo or something). I have absolutely no idea where to start. I did some googleing and found that old old tomtoms could be hacked and a media player put on there so something like that, just something that I could put on there and leave in the dash of my car to make it look a bit more modern with a screen. Any help is appreciated as I really dont know what Im doing when it comes to things like this. Thanks very much!
 
Many years ago it was possible to alter the opening/closing screens of Tomtom devices. But that was when the user had access to the file system of the device. Not now, or for many years. Including the model you have. Sorry.

Damn. Ah well, it was worth an ask. Knew someone here would be able to tell me if I was wasting my time or not. Cheers for your help.
