Hmmm...

I'm assuming you've been looking at the instructions here:
http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/tomtom-custom-cursors.php

Now, I must admit that I thought ALL models on v7 and above software could now use custom vehicle cursors, but it's a long time ago so I may be wrong.

Can you try something for me?
Don't bother with TTHeaven for a minute... can you just look at the contents of the ONE with Windows Explorer? (it should appear to the PC as a new "disk drive" when you plug it in) See if you already have an "art" folder on the device with another folder inside that called "cars".
If you do, try putting one of the ready made icons from that webpage in there and see if it works.

If not, try adding those two folders (one inside the other) and one of the ready-made cursors and see if THAT works.

If not, I'm talking rubbish and you can start again with some better help! (I'm away for a few days )


EDIT: I just had a look a the TomTom Heaven website... what a mess! It's got so many weird backgrounds and pop-ups I can't see half of it with my browser, especially once you've done the translation into English....

But if it's any use to you, I found an old copy of "TT Explorer" that I had downloaded to my PC back in 2007!
I've uploaded it HERE if it helps.

EDIT 2...
I've had a wade through the TT Heaven website (I seem to have got t working a bit better by using Internet Explorer rather than Firefox...

A Yahoo translation of their original tutorial for adding the car cursors is HERE

I still couldn't find an actual working download link for the "Xplorer" program though. Hope mine works for you!
