    Thread for Vehicle icons?

    Does anyone have extra vehicle icons?

    I see they are approx. 80x70 with 24 bit color and in .bmp format.

    It appears, transparency does NOT work properly on TT devices and therefore, the best icons to be used are full scaled block images using as many pixels in the block as possible. Otherwise you get white area flooding your custom image.
    I will work more to see how the default ARROW image is used and why that image does NOT flood the viewing plane with whitewash.

    I see they reside in the: /art directory on the device itself.

    Anything else I need to know?

    Think I'll test a few and post them up if the staff here doesn't mind...
    Hope to see a few other people do the same!

    For transparency, use RGB = 255,0,0 .

    And do you think they work on a TomTom? If so, could you be a bit more specific than just garmin.com?

    Thanks to everyone for the replies.
    I thought Beartraxx33's icons were nicely done just not exactly what I was looking for.

    I wouldn't mind something more trivial and novelty-esque. My first attempt isn't terrible so I'll post it up here. It's the android mascot in 2.5D which when used with 3CPO voice has a nice unique twist to the everyday TT device

    .

    The last mystery (due to my fail with PS CS5) is how to keep each icon from having an outline in the transparent color. If I can learn that final trick it might be super easy to create icons based on requests.
    I've discovered that the "red outline" is caused by the thin layer of pixels used to "magic wand" the original image from its source file as a copy onto the RGB 255,0,0 block of transparency.

    Perhaps someone with leetzor PS skills can tell me how to fix this? I noticed all other icons have a black outline around them...

    Here you go:

    android.bmp





    Make your icon 64x64 pixels. Select the object with whatever tool you like and paste it on a red background. But make sure NO anti-aliasing is applied. If you need to resize the image, use the 'Nearest Neighbor' option.

    @Megalos

    I have very primitive PS skills so I'll read up a bit and try your suggestions.
    Once I can create my own icons without the red outline using your suggestions, I'll post some of my other creative ideas here.

    Thanks for the contribution and help.

    I was browsing the icons on tomtom home and there are a lot of them. I was surprised.
