WVGA version (480×800 a 800×480)

Installation is the same as usual, copy the downloaded ZIP file to a folder on the SD card
IGO8CONTENT SKIN, but only minor modifications described here.
Since writing the entire skin from scratch is really unnecessary, and so I used a little ruse.
If you look in to the ZIP file skin, not the folder 800_480 is there. There are only 240_400 and 400_240,
but then there is also an ingredient VGA, where are all the necessary images for 800×480 and 480×800.
And if you run the skin on the HD device, automatically loads the VGA graphics directories.
Automatically it will not, we will have to slightly modify SYS.TXT.
It’s necessary to respect some rules.


I attach SYS.TXT.
I leave that equipment is normally runing as the portrait and after IGO start will be rotated to landscape by the sys.txt. I have try a several times and I had to prepare a SYS.TXT with preset parameters. Do not change!
Parameters are of particular importance:
Any orientation, optional in the IGO – applies only to the HD version of the skin
[interface] vga=1[rawdisplay] highres=1
driver=“GDI“If you type eg highres = 0, it will try to IGO run graphics directly from folders 800×480. Skin is made so that section is in the 240×400 graphics components and the rest is needed in the VGA, which has already started in full VGA for HD. SYS.TXT – universal download below.QVGA and VGA version (240×320, 320×240 + VGA 480×640 and 640×480)

In the directory „MAP_NQ“ I kept the same map, but from the NQ
Function Map Changer them switch and I need not manually move or otherwise change.
It is possible to switch between the four manufacturers, or MAP between the four sets of different countries
In SYS.TXT add…

Bold line is of course possible (necessary) adjusted by the name of your SD card or the name of the folder iGO8 on your SD card.


Create folders in IGO8

iGO8MapChanger = for this files (MapChanger.exe, MapChanger.nfrun)

and next folders for maps files

Each folders (map, map_nt, map_ot, map_us) MUST contain at least one map (one. FBL file)

Need help with iGO8 on HTC Touch HD?

Here are additional information not only on the skin, but setting iGO8 in HTC devices with a resolution of 800×480 (480×800)


Set function of fuel consumption

First, the key must be set in ShortMenu (the number of buttons that shows click on the arrow bottom right). Long click on the arrow will cause us more quickly offer settings where selects to be where at what the key functions. Where we have a power button, select it. Then just scroll the map by clicking on the icon appears ShortMenu consumption.
! New! 
Option to set the icon for computing power directly to the navigation screen.

New skin appearance Dimka HD

Somewhat radically, I changed the look of HD version Dimka skin – Tomsoft. Changes are only ro VERZIO 400×240. 🙂
What worries me is the look and color bars + color fonts and the data on the roll ….
This is only the appearance and location of each component on the screen. Through the course of time, which were different buttons, arrows, etc. .. and already there is a total Narvan. jse therefore proceeded to radical changes.
So far, only 400×240 resolution (HD). All other distinction about the height will not be adjusted in a similar vein to the simple reason – there is space on the width.
I do not know if the changes that I have now for the last two days will do to something or whether to blow me:) – but also to take



Here in the picture are Happy to see significant changes to the navigation screen.
1. Change the location of all data on the route and roll.
2. Repeal of the buttons: Quickly, GPS, which are, of course, replaced by others, so they are available again to other component.
(Tl. quickly on a short click on the battery indicator + GPS, long handles are used for GPS)
3. Repeal of the activation of the recording path. The function is not abolished, but the OFF / ON is located in the fast menu, the status of the recording itself is secured in the upper right corner – there is a black or red dot.
4. Adaptation and transfer of any data, so which appear at the bottom of the bar with the street, such as arrows on the lanes, scale, radar, speedometer, the arrow for Shortmenu …
The main change is the arrangement seen in the picture data fields.
In setting the skin remained all the same, but part of setting data fields I msuel override, because there was always a „data box upper and lower, which is no longer applicable.
On dispeji can display up to 6 +2 data, it is the same on each and what you can where, perhaps only the exception of data that I put into the right corner. The picture there is just an indicator of the route, but the team can be anything what would fit there, in fact everything except the data on the roll:
The distance to objects in km / m
Time to destination
Finish at (time)
these three figures from left to right are somehow fated for the three basic data. I presume that no one can top the right time of arrival and distance to targets on the left down … it would probably be
However, even these data can also be changed.
The first three figures for the lucky switch n azobrazení same data for the transit point (function is the same). Click on the location for the other two bottom right data switches next two figures that are set. Therefore, 6 +2.
At the same time, I also improved a bit and other bits.
I wished I had someone to look, comment, or you can compile – and adjust other things. All the HD resolution in width, yet.
This is mainly on the color of the data.
I sjem added a dark bar, which I put these data, but the color will eventually appear, including color bar alone, I do not know …
I am the dark, not very transparent and the distinctness and clarity, color information …
So what do you say?
