Talking TomTom MPG Hack

So take a look at this, I can change the start up screen of my TomTom & I figured I should get rid of my out-dated one (see first picture) & get a new one, I had to doctor up in paint (second pic)***You like it right?!***

New GPS=Another wallpaper "Hack"

Ok as some of you guys know, my Tomtom One stopped working a few days ago so I did some research online and figured out the best GPS for me would be the Garming 1350t so I went and spent the $300 for it and have been using it...

I like it a lot, there is a small amount of things I miss that the Tomtom One had that this one doesn't but there are many things that I wanted from the Tomtom that this one has so I'm happy...

Anyways... I HAD to get my ecomodder wallpaper back so I rearranged things and got it on this GPS too how ya like it? The first 2 are the gps starting up, the 3ed is to show what the jpeg looks like since the pics are a noisy...

Have you guys ever had problems with your GPS crapping out on you due to heat ?
After my drive, I would place the GPS in the glove box. Much to my surprise, the thing overheated.
How can this be if todays cars all come with GPS right in the dash ? The GPS is never removed, and gets direct sun.

O.K. back on topic.

My Tomtom broke while in the car when I was using it, I do not know if it was b/c of heat or not but its a possibility...

My new Garmin 1350T has a feature that makes it where if it is a certain heat it will stop recharging (which would make it heat up more) so it stays at a decent temperature (which sounds great right?!? ) well what is ironic is that all the complaints about the gps are that it does not charge in the car making it useless and people do not know that it has that feature I love the irony of that

So how is it that the in dash GPS systems do not overheat ??

When I first saw this posting, I thought that there was a 'hack' to your GPS that acted like a ScanGuage. It sure would be cool if such a thing were possible !
