Hi,

I've used the general method described on page 1 of this forum to install the European DB on an iPhone 4s running tom-tom 1.10.

I've renamed the bmp files to png in the hope that might work, and changed the map settings.cfg to warn at 500 yards for each type of camera & play a sound when near using an XL Live PND.

So far I have the camera positions showing on the european map but just placeholders rather then the actual images in the bmp files renamed to png.

However in the POI list on the iPhone tom-tom I can see these images.

Also the warning when near the cameras does not work.

The UK DB is installed & working perfectly as well.

Do you thing it's possible to get either the images of the cameras or the warnings to work on the european DB or am I wasting my time?

Many Thanks
Steve

Open the icon using paint and choose "SaveAs" selecting 24 Bit BMP then choose "SaveAs" and change the file type to png.

Do the above for each of the icons before using DiskAid to send the files to your iPhone app folder.

For the iPhone4 the icons are best reworked to slightly larger, 32x32 makes them look about the same size as the TomTom icons on the map, 44x44 are much easier to see - Mike
