Car symbols

Your TomTom navigation device uses a blue arrow as the default image to show your current position in the Driving View. There are a number of alternative car symbols preinstalled on your device for you to use but you can also create your own custom car symbol. To do this, you will need to use a graphics program such as MS Paint or Photoshop.

Note: Check the table to see if your device supports this type of content.

Creating a car symbol

1.Create the image to a size of 80x80 pixels.
2.Give the image a red background (RGB 255,000,000).
3.Save the image as a 24 bit .bmp in the art\cars folder of your device.

TIP: Car symbols can appear on dark or light areas of the map, so your car symbol might not stand out on all areas unless you add a light line around a dark icon or a dark line around a light icon. The red background becomes transparent and is not seen on your TomTom navigation device.
