Try re-setting the device by pressing a paper-clip in the requisite hole. Then re-start it. You should then see the new symbol. Have a look here: click here It may well help.

woodchip,i have mobile cams setup in mine and work fine but it is an one xl maybe a different setup to yours ??.

Just to try out your problem, I downloaded a new car symbol and that has worked fine, I also updated maps and other elements they suggested. All have gone in OK. I thought there was a problem, but when I switched off and then on again it worked fine. If you are still having problems, I would e mail TomTom at click here . They will come back to you hopefully with the right answer. They came back to me PDQ when I had the earlier problem.

TonyV.How did you make the new symbol your default symbol??.

  TonyV 00:18 05 Jan 2009

Went through the Change Preferences / Change Car Symbol and clicked on the new symbol. If you go back in to it after making the change, you will see the Blue default one as the first option, but the new one selected earlier is the one that is actually displayed on the map. So change yours to what you want, and it should stay as you want it.

Have fun!

That's good.

That must be why mine did not change as I prefer 2D its a faster response needs less CPU work.

Will Stick with Arrow
