New Ultra skin customized ...

I found a very nice skin "iGO 8 Ultra Skin" on many forum ... This skin provides extra functions to iGO 8 which I thought were useful for route planning and ease of use ...

I updated this skin by including the following features that I found very useful (only for portrait mode) :
* dayheightcolormap and nightheightcolormap that I have created and presented on this blog ;-)
* always visible speedlimit
* current speed
* new road calculation method "panorama" (see below for more explainations)



I hope that you appreciate this new skin, and many thanks to the author of the orginal "Ultra Skin" !

Enjoy artwork-igo8 Ultra 1 !!!

and if you want the original iGO8 Ultra Skin and the features documentation ...

Panorama mode :
I don't know how is really calculated the road with "panorama" ... but in a region with mountain, the proposed road with this option is a good optimisation of the road with highways and mountain roads ... and not fully highway like proposed by other options with a very longer distance ...

Great job!

Can you explain better how IGO8 calculate the road with method "panorama"? Is it based on POI or map or some other way?

320x240 resolution from original ULTRA is missing, why? Please, add it to your Ultra 1, thanX

Hmm...

The skin doesn't work on my Tilt with the latest ATT WM6 ROM.

I placed the skin in a "skins" folder under the "content" folder in the SD card.

I then successfully switched the skin from within IGO.

I then received a warning that in order for the change to take effect, the application needs to restart.
I pressed "OK", but nothing happened, so I manually exited IGO and restarted.

The default sking came on, not this new and great skin.

So I switched back to the default skin, again received the restart warning, and this time, when I pressed "OK" - it did restart IGO, and it then came back on with the default skin.

Any ideas why this isn't working for me?

Thank you.

What is your resolution ? portrait or landscape mode ? because for the moment this skin is only portrait 240x320 ...
Otherwise I have no idea why it doesn't work ...

My resolution is standard QVGA.

And indeed, I want to use it in Portrait.

Just to verify, the new skin should be in the SD card, in a "skin" sub-directory under content, right? As an unzipped file, an nothing else to install?

Thank you.

I don't know what is the problem ... You could leave the skin as a zipped file in the "skin" directory under content folder ... and try ...

I think this is a great skin, but is it not possible to make a 320x240 version of it, because my Mio Moov only supports 320x240.

Thanks in advance.

By the way: I really love this site!

How can I modify my skin so it will always show the speedlimit and current speed. I've been searching the net like hell but can't find it.

If someone can point me in the right direction, I would be very thankfull.
