Which Step 5? There is two of them. :-)

5. A list of optional images opens up, 243 pages of them!! geeeeez, but there is a search feature, lol.

5. At the bottom left hand corner of the page there is a link to "How do I create my own content". It will give you some instructions on how to make your own, and some specifics.

A member ask me about how I made the Tom Tom icon of my car, he has Photoshop Elements, which is very similar to regular Photoshop, it uses the same tools. SO, for those of you who would like to do this, but not very proficient with Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Here are some easy to follow instructions to make your own Tom Tom Icon of your car, or any other car for that matter.

I never thought that this feature would be selective as to the model. I did a little homework on the tom tom site and came up with a list of their current models that have this ability, but no one could or would answer the question as to how far back this feature goes. Currently the models that you can do this with are as follows: GO 2505TM, GO 2405TM,GO 740 LIVE, GO 730, GO 630, XXL 550 Series, XXL 540 WTE Series, XXL 540 Series, XXL 535*T, XL 350 Series, XL 340 S LIVE Series, XL 340 Series, XL 335 Series, XL 330 S , and the XL 325 Series, these are the ones that TOM TOM tells me have the ability to put YOUR car on your Tom Tom.

I still am waiting to hear back from Tom Tom customer support to get a complete listing......but the ones listed above are for sure on their website, but some of the older models are not listed. I have only had mine for about a year, so thats I can confirm for now.

Thanks again for the most recent update although it was bad news.Oh well I guess I will just have to surrender my current model to my wife and purchase a new one for the camaro.Probably won't really tell her the real reason why!
"just look at it this way you will have your own personal gps and we will no longer have to switch it back & forth between vehicle's" Sound like a winner to me. Ha Ha!

And do your self a favor, and get one of the models that have "LIFETIME" updates...not all of them do...and you don't find out till afterwards you have to start paying for updates or are limited on the number of updates you get. Just saying....I love mine....I made mutiple cars for mine....so which ever car we are in.....ITS on the Tom. lol

Since none of the pics of my car are to my liking for a GPS image (too many reflections in the black), I just built my car on Chevrolet's site, did a print screen, and cropped it down to just the shot of the car, did a little editing, added the red background, and now I have "my" car on the gps when i'm driving around in my beater eclipse for the winter...


Edit: I may get back to editing the file to make the bowtie CGM like my stripes at some point.
