I followed all the steps, and I see the car come up on the map, but when I'm in 2D mode and zoom out and navigate through the map, I notice the car is always there (not at the GPS location) and just following me everywhere I scroll too on the map. any fixes for that?

Great mod by the way!

Nice one. Only very sorry this works for your skin only.
How do I modify the superb DiMka skin and IGO8 to show my little FIAT500 instead of an arrow?

Has anybody got any ideas?

Hi!

I've got the same problem like anonymous from May 30, 2008 5:05 PM.

The car is visible in the routing mode as well as in the map mode.

How can I deactivate the car model in the map mode?
