View Full Version : Android iGO My Way Reborn Skin v1.5.3 Final! EUR+ TTS Multi-Res

11-18-2011, 08:51 AM
This skin (aka My Amigo Skin) was originally made for Amigo on WM and was ported over to the Android platform. Credit goes to freddysam and mmarz for starting this skin. It is designed to look like the original iGO skin by default. Turn on the desired advanced features through the settings menu. Here is where the skin was started: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1058584

Huge POI Icon Library

The skin itself contains multiple sets of POI icons. You can change the icons individually by going to "More..." -> "Manage Places", or you can change the icons in bulk by using one of these branding.gro files:
Branding 2: http://www.multiupload.com/EH3NOKZ5A0
Branding 3: http://www.multiupload.com/NVAXX7ZB55
If you want to revert back to the default POI icon set (Branding 1), use the branding.gro included with the skin or simply delete the branding.gro that you are using.

Toolkit to edit the skin: http://www.multiupload.com/OF8BFUAN2O
GROconverter turns the data.gro into a zip.
BMPconverter uncompresses the BMP images for editing.

How to add custom POI's using KML files:

a) Copy the BMP file you want to use to iGO/content/userdata/usericon
b) Massage your KML as follows--just below the header telling what version of Google Earth KML add the following:

<name>(the name of your POI here as you want it to appear in iGO)</name>
<metadata><igoicon><filename>content\userdata\usericon\(poi BMP name.bmp)</filename></igoicon></metadata>
(it is "usericon" with no space, xda adds a space for some reason after I post)
c) Add your KML files to /iGO/content/userdata/poi

UPOI Editor will do this automagically, and for large sets of POIs at that--and it exports cleanly to KML that iGO will take natively, so I think we're fixed :D

Suggestions for icons--you'll need to do them in BMP format, 40x40 would appear to be the practical limit if the big "icon stacks" out of a standard branding.gro or data.gro file are anything to go by, though a lot of these are 32x32. Nmollet's PNG icons for Google Maps converted to BMP (http://mapicons.nicolasmollet.com/) work quite well in iGO once KML files have the appropriate headers, and these are just straight BMP conversions from a 32x37 PNG file.

Example KML: http://www.multiupload.com/5S3MMLXKMO
The example POI is near N45.38762 E13.00259
Put that into the Long. & Lat, Select "Show on Map" -> "More Options" -> "Places Around Cursor"
It will be named "Lidl"
