[PC] ETA/REM/DEST/SPEED box is too small: page 6 here

Let's share good ideas...
Keyboard access to full screen mode in iGuidance 2.1
EDIT: This tweak is no longer needed in iGuidance 2.1.1 which introduced F-key to toggle full screen mode.
Users of the laptop version of the new iGuidance 2.1 have one annoyance to deal with: there is no way to toggle the new Full Screen View mode with a keyboard shortcut. Attempting to move a mouse pointer to the exact position where the small full screen button is may not be quite safe at a high rate of speed ;-)
I just managed to modify iguidance.exe file to add Ctrl+F shortcut for this function. And to make it even simpler I also added a new F-key function to iGkeys.
I'm not going to publish here the modified iguidance.exe file because the developer of this navigation software could object to that (even though the one file alone would be useless to anybody unless they own the the whole software). However I will share here step by step a simple procedure how you too can do it.
After you have modified the iguidance.exe file, and after you have installed the newest version of iGkeys, you will have a single key access to turning on / off full screen view mode just by hitting F-key on your keyboard.
1. First step is to download ResHacker >>here<<
2. Backup (copy & paste to a different folder) iguidance.exe before you do anything. This is always a good idea ;-)
3. Start ResHacker, and on the Menu bar click File > Open. Navigate to iguidance.exe which you will likely locate in C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance
4. As shown on the above picture, open Accelerators folder and navigate to the 1033 file. Add this: "^F", 3074 as shown on the picture. Press "Compile Script" button above, and then click Save (Menu bar > File > Save). (Make sure iGuidance is closed before you attempt to save, or it will not save.)
Congratulations, now you can start iGuidance 2.1 and Ctrl+F will toggle full screen mode for you. However, I do not like Ctrl+F. It is simpler to just use a single key shortcut. Continue to next step:
5. Download newest version of iGkeys >>here<<. It will let you toggle full screen mode just by hitting F-key on your keyboard. (Provided you have modified iguidance.exe as described above.)
If you do not feel comfortable doing any of the above, please do not do it.

Custom Navigation Arrow For iGuidance 2011:
Here is my Volvo Navigation icon that i created:
I created 4 diferent colors in all default sizes.
I used Restorator 2007 to edit my iGuidanceNPC.exe, the following are the bitmaps you will need to edit:
Download Volvo Arrows here:
Let me know what you think and if you would like to quickly try what i have made back-up your original iGuidanceNPC.exe, download and paste this Pre-made iGuidance.exe into your installation folder.
Also all 50pxX50px are 2d

I have this in my theme.ini file.
; max funclass to draw @ zoom level
MDFC=5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5
;MDFC=5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5
But zoom 6 and up still do not show more roads. I had accomplished this in my last version, 4.0. Now I have 4.1.

Can I see what that theme.ini looks like please.

That's correct, the .ini file is not there after you install the program. However, you may easily create your own theme.ini file by following instructions in this thread. Go to page #1 of this thread, and in the list look-up an item titled "Create your own first theme.ini file".

Thanks for your reply, Marvin.
I didn't find any *.ini files in IG4.
||Posted - 09 juil. 2008 : 11:54:40
John, welcome to the forum. I haven't played with theme.ini for a long time now. If the method described for previous versions doesn't work in version 4, then I don't know .
||Posted - 09 juil. 2008 : 04:38:26
How to see more roads in IG4? Is there any theme.ini for IG4?
Thanks in advance

Hi all, and thanks for all the cool IG customizing ideas :)
I have recorded a great 22K voice (Snd folder) for my IG4 and tried both TTS options above (works great)
However, I would like to know if there is a way to "force" IG to use the Win XP default voice? rather then use then "RealSpeakSolo" in the IG folder.

Guys.. This thing is driving nuts... it's that arrow location.. i replaced it with a donkey icon and it's not positioning right... It's blocking the current road name... What should i do?... I even left out some space below the icon when saved, so it will shift up a little.. didn't make any difference.... By the way, it only happens in 3D mode, Help??
I tried to attach a screen capture.. don't know how...

Dan, I wouldn't call it a "big" difference between v3 and v4, but it all depends on individual needs/wants, etc. Version 4 has 6 million POIs versus about a million and a half in the old v3. But if you've used iGo you may also miss how iGo lets you search for POIs.
I'm afraid there is nothing I can think of that would help you with your original question :-(

Yes, I would like to be able to just load (or display) the cities I work in. That way, when you look up a street you are only looking at a list of streets in the areas you have defined. I like having all the states loaded; that is why I thought that having a “MyState” (or MyAreas as one of the States) you could control the number of cities to search in. I guess I got accustomed to the iGo way of looking up a destination. iGo keeps a list of recent cities in a selection window. It makes searching for an address much faster.
Is there a big difference between V3 and V4?
||Posted - 27 janv. 2008 : 00:52:02
Are you saying you would like to install just some cities, or a portion of a state, to simplify your search? I think this was possible in versions 1, 2, and 3, but the current version 4 requires to install the whole of USA/Canada.
||Posted - 27 janv. 2008 : 00:27:20
It sure seems that you are the guy to talk to about getting options / tweaks done! I am new to Iguidance, and have an idea that many may like.
For new destinations I find keying in a city name each time tedious,so what I'd like to do is have a State (MyState) that would only contain cities that I enter into it. Destinations would be much faster and easier to locate and only contain streets that are in the area I work in.
I find that searching by Street First returns far too many results and can be slower than searching by City First.

Not sure about that, but there may be some 3rd party application that may do what you want :)

I have another idea of customizing iguidance, just not sure whether it's possible or not. I would like to see iguidance display the battery level (especially the ppc version) because ig runs in full screen and there are few times that it runs down my mio's battery completely. Is it possible to allow iguidance to show battery level inside the program?
