scolley - there's no question in your post. As a statement, it's informative, but ultimately merely evokes suspense - did you solve your backlight problem, or merely resort to using xmen style glasses to create your own?
Please don't multiple post. I'm deleting the other 83% of your "efflu-posts".
I'm afraid I have no specific knowledge on the TomTom issue. My backlight works fine with it. How did you install it? Have you tried the latest update on TomTom's website? The map problem is not an issue with the original app. The crack has problems, but read the instructions that come with it and you should be able to get it to work.
