An idiot proof Tutorial:

There are 10 images you need to create to replace the 3d ones, if you just want to upload someone else images to your phone to test it out, skip to step 5:

1) Find an image you like, it can be of pretty much anything, edit it in Photoshop, or your favourite editing program so only the part of the image you want is displayed, make the background transparent.

2) Change the size of the image to the following widths, and save as 24 bit PNG. Height doesn't really matter too much, but obviously you don't want something too big taking up the screen

32 pixels - save as car_symbol_100.png
46 pixels - save as car_symbol_25.png
58 pixels - save as car_symbol_15.png
88 pixels - save as car_symbol_5.png
116 pixels - save as car_symbol_2.png

3) Open up all the images in Photoshop you have just saved, then for each one go to 'Image - Adjustments - Black & White' use the default settings or have a play around if you like then click done. Once you have done this for each image, save with the same name but with the added the prefix _grey as below.

car_symbol_100.png - save as car_symbol_grey_100.png
car_symbol_25.png - save as car_symbol_grey_25.png
car_symbol_15.png - save as car_symbol_grey_15.png
car_symbol_5.png - save as car_symbol_grey_5.png
car_symbol_2.png - save as car_symbol_grey_2.png

You should now have 10 images with the names above, 5 in black & white, 5 in colour.

4) *Optional - You can also edit the 2d icons its the same process but its better to keep the size square. edit these files:
30 pixels x 30 pixels save as car_symbol_2d_2.png
42 pixels x 42 pixels save as car_symbol_2d_northup_back.png

5) Navigate to /private/var/mobile/Applications/xxx-xxx-xxx/whatever-your-tomtom-apps-called.app

You will find 10 (or 12 if replacing 2d image too) files with the same name, back them up if you wish, not that its that important as you can always restore the originals, you can just extract the default ones from the original ipa.

6) Test to make sure it all works ok and upload for the community to enjoy!
