As the title states this is a post explaining how to make an image of your own vehicle to use in place of the default arrow on your device's map display depending if your device model supports this. All that is needed is is a rear ended picture of your car ( picture quality is not really an essential ) and the use of an image editor ( you can use a free online image editor but I used Microsoft Paint which does the job just as well ).
First, crop the image of your vehicle so as to remove as much background as possible.
Next playing about with the stretch/skew options shrink your image so that it's attributes does not exceed heigth/width of 80 pixels
Once you have done that using the zoom option ( the image will now look blurry and pixellated but don't worry about that ) you need to fill in the background with a particular shade of red paint. Just click the custom colours, chose red and add 255 into the red properties box and then use it.
Finally, return the image to it's normal size then save it as a 24 bit .bmp image using the "save as" option in the "file" option in Microsoft Paint or whatever image editor that you are using. Then add the image to the "cars" folder which is found in the "art" folder on your device.
