I have installed the big camera icons (the special version for TomTom 8), but, although they show on the screen, they aren't very big.

The files I have downloaded (I think) are:
icons_uk_speed_44.zip
icons_uk_speed_44_bignum.zip
Liz_speedzoned.zip
pgpsw-speed-cams-5B4TA.zip

The result is the following files on the TomTom (a long list; are there too many?):

Admin Edit: Long File List deleted

How do I get the icons to look bigger, please?

PS Should I be reading the sticky topic above?

Does it contain the answer somewhere in its 6 pages?

They're as big as you'll get, TomTom won't allow them to be larger with the arrival of v8 software.

The image below shows how the icon size in v8 shrunk. Sadly that is a software issue and not something we can control.

v8 is on the left, earlier versions on the right.

As you have downloaded the "bignum" version of the X2 files, the actual size of the numbers are the same as the old version - it just does away with the red circle and uses background colour instead.

I have tried some other tricks but they were no better.

We can only work with what TomTom give us. Crying or Very sad
