NOTE: All di/\/\ka skins since di/\/\ka beta 0.6.0 have been developed and tested with iGO 8.3.2.xxx. They MAY work with 8.3.1.xxx but have not been tested.
D8389 (Dimka) has announced that he will no longer be developing the original skin. Instead he will make limited (Potentially untested) changes to the diMkaWertVRV base which may or may not flow through into the full diMkaWertVRV version at WertVRV's discretion.
The Megaduck99 version adds the following
features to the diMkaWertVRV version:
Changes to the Map Speed Display
Stopped the speed indicator on the Nav screen from turning red when "Warn when Speeding" is off. Changed the script so that the speed no longer disappears when stationary.
Integrated Cursor Cars
Skin now natively supports the Kimyaci cars.
Added ETA warnings
The skin can now audibly remind you of your arrival time, both when re-calculating your route and regularly every x minutes. The reminder frequency can be set in the skin. (TTS voices ONLY)
Show House Number changes Added settings, variable and scripts so that house numbers will only show within a set distance of the destination.
Changes to the Cockpit screen
Changed the sound icon in the cockpit so it will fade like the other buttons .
Clicking the monocle will now repeat the last spoken command, long clicking will take you to the Route Information screen.
Data Field Text Labels
Restored the text labels to the cockpit data fields on all landscape layouts
There are two ways to use this skin with version 8.3.4:
Use the data.zip from version 8.3.2 (no changes) and we use skin (no changes).
Use in sys.txt:
Use the data.zip from version 8.3.4 (no changes) and we use skin (inside the skin zip filerename the folder ui_igo8 to ui_igo8_da).
Use in sys.txt:
Important: For WVGA-device (480x800, 800x480)
Skin supports two modes of operation:
- 240x400, 400h240
- 480x800, 800x480
In both modes, images of buttons, menu items, and other screen elements are the same (in a high quality display.)
In the first case the skin is working with a map size of 240x400 (400h240), the second - with a map size 480x800 (800x480). The second option requires more memory.
So which mode to use? You need to decide yourself.
For devices (480x800, 800x480) to specify the resolution add this section to sys.txt (You do not need to add (resolution_dir, screen_x, screen_y) to specify the resolution and screen size.
autoconfig = 1
highres = 1 (1 - mode 240x400, 400h240, 0 - mode 480x800, 800x480).
If you do not use resolution_dir, screen_x, screen_y, then in each mode (240x400, 480x800, 400h240 and 800x480) portrait-landscape switching is possible from the menu (Settings-Device-screen orientation).
Added to the original version of the diMka skin:
Sub-menu for launching external programs. Called with a long tap on the Menu button in the navigation mode with the appropriate setting of such an action (Settings-Menu-long tap on the Menu button). Can also be set to one of the buttons on the short menu.
Integration in skin a patch DVS1 (Favorite Groups).(The button-switch "With route / Without route" condition is remembered.)
Integration in skin of possibility of construction of a route from the History.(The button-switch "With route / Without route" is added. The switch condition is remembered.)
Integration in skin of possibility of construction of a route from the POI.(The button-switch "With route / Without route" is added. The switch condition is remembered.)(only for 480_234, 400_240,480_272,400_234)
Plan of a route - transition in the Plan map (route) after selecting POI, History, and Favorite. (Settings- Route Planning-Route Summary).
Variants of screen savers: it is switched off, current time, speed, distance to destination, time to destination, an arrival time to destination, height, the following maneuver. (8 variants) (Change step-by-step in Settings- Map Visual–More…-Screen Saver-Current Screen Saver or click on the screen saver name in a screen saver mode, direct change - long click on the screen saver name in a screen saver mode).
In the Screen saver mode there is a possibility sound on/sound off (click on Sound icon in the screen saver mode).
In the Screen saver mode there is a possibility visual SpeedCam Warning(Settings- Map Visual–More…-Screen Saver-SpeedCam Warning)
Screen saver start:
manual - click on the car-cursor or cursor.
- from distance before following maneuver(Settings- Map Visual–More…-Screen Saver-Auto Screen Saver-Turn Distance)
Screen saver stop - click on area of the screen below the screen saver name in a screen saver mode.
IGO can start with screen saver mode (at corresponding appointment of such action in Settings-Menu-Start: No route: and Settings-Menu-With route:).
Variants of buttons(big, small) of a choice of number of the house (address search) (a problem old/new data.zip) (Settings-Menu-Selecting adress)
The additional short menu in a navigation mode and plan mode (customize buttons) (idea DVS1) (Setting of buttons in Settings- Map Visual–More…-Short Menu or long click on the button Short or Back in a navigation mode). For some resolutions the call of the short menu in a navigation mode can be appointed on long òàï to the button Menu (Settings- Menu–Menu long click action).
Adjusted action after route finished (arrival in finish)(Settings- Device–Power settings).
- 6 variants of actions at arrival to destination (nothing, the visual message, exit; shutdown, start of the external program, performance of action from the list of actions for the short menu);
- delay is independent of power management mode.
Support VGA mode.(for ver. 184.108.40.206029)

"Railroad" (without speed)
"Give Way" (without speed)
"Children" (without direction)
"Dangerous turn" (without speed)
"POI" (without speed and direction)
The voice warning is possible(in the folder AUDIO some files are necessary - look the sample on the screenshot SpeedcamVoiceScripts\Speedcam_adv_Example.jpg)
Switching-off of the second phrase(Ultra) is possible independently for each type of the camera.
Possibility of adjustment of control distance of speedcam warning(only for some advanced types) is added.
Adjusted field "Next street"(Next street, next viapoint, smart field).

- 2 modes of functioning (in movement, at parking) with independent delays (speed of start of movement in understanding of this mode can be set in settings).
Additional adjustable speed limit sound warning(stand-alone sounds). The voice warning is possible(in the folder AUDIO some files are necessary - look the sample on the screenshot SpeedcamVoiceScripts\Speedover_Example.jpg)
Warning of change of the speed-limit of road(stand-alone sounds). The voice warning is possible(in the folder AUDIO some files are necessary - look the sample on the screenshot SpeedcamVoiceScripts\Speedlimit_Example.jpg). Switching-off of the second phrase is possible.
Fuel Calculation(thanks DVS1). Use the button of the short menu.
Starting with version 1.1.14 changed the advanced types of cameras. "Railroad" "Move" (without the speed, always both directions) - CI (traffic information) "Give Way" "Yield" (no speed) (corresponding to sign 2.4 "give way") - CI (traffic information) "FixMobil" "Mobile ambush" (with fixation rate) - CD (control traffic) "Speed Breaker" "Lezhkop" (corresponding to sign 1.17 "hump") - CI (traffic information) "Children" "Kids" (without the direction and speed), places where children and adults on the roadway - CI (traffic information) "Dangerous turn" "dangerous bend" (no speed) (corresponding to sign 1.12.1 "dangerous bend" - CI (traffic information) "Tunnel" "Tunnel" - CI (traffic information) "Dangerous way" "danger zone" (corresponding to sign 1.33 "Other dangers") - CI (traffic information) "POI" "Object of PSI" (without the speed and without direction) - CI (traffic information) "RPS Post" "DPS" - CD (control traffic) Possible setting sensing range of extended radar (separately for visual and audible warning, distance to the sound is always less than or equal to the distance for the visual warning, an allowable range of adjustment range 50 ... 700 m in steps of 50m.). Setting up in the window of the test chambers. For different types of radars, for which there vozmost set distance, the parameters of operation of the individual. Ability to customize the distance is only for the radar, which operated in the CI (traffic information). For radars, which operate in the mode of CD (control traffic), this configuration will not.
Automatic management POI at work with camera (add, remove, group change at type change) (idea Andron66) (turn on in settings of the short menu).
Don't rename automatically created group (subgroups) @Dangerous_Places. Translating, visibility and icons to change it is possible.
Action-Add Camera - to GPS in the list of the short menu (speed, type and a direction of the camera set up, two modes of selecting of camera type(defined, manual), switching-off of automatic control POI) (in settings of the short menu).
Action-Add Camera - to GPS can to replace action by pressing the defined hard button (the same possibilities, as at Add Camera in the short menu).
Start/exit IGO sounds.(stand-alone sounds)
Max Speed(thanks DVS1). Use the button of the short menu.
Possibility of a choice of a digital font for some elements of the screen is added. (For choice possibility presence in root IGO8 of folder Font (is in archive near to skin) is necessary).
Separate settings(on/off) of the sound "By approach" for each type of speedcams.
Separate settings(on/off, overspeed delta, overspeed sound ) of the sound "By overspeeding" for each type of speedcams.
Separate settings(on/off) of the sound "Voice warning" for each type of speedcams.
Possibility of a choice of the sound(if for Voice warning to select lang "Alert sound") for each type of speedcams
New principle of a selection of simple sounds (for sound of Lane info, for overspeed sound, for speedcam overspeed sound, for power events sound, for changing speedlimit of the road sound, for start/exit IGO sound, for alert sound of speedcams).
It is possible to choose sound from two lists:
- Default list
- User list(in which it is possible to add/delete entries).
New appearance of the screen of a choice of speed by editing/creation speedcamera through the cursor menu (four (in a portrait 240x320 - two) "hot" buttons (are recustomized on long click) with most often used values + the separate button of a choice of other values (15 pieces) which list dynamically changes after change-over of "hot" buttons.
New appearance of the screen of the voice test of speedcameras (for pictures and idea thanks Andron66):
- Four conditions (speedcamera is turn on, second phrase is turn off, all sounds of the speedcamera is turn off, speedcamera is turn off) vary now on click on the button with a speedcamera icon;
- The button "Play test" is added.
Add MapChanger function(thanks DVS1):
MapChanger function installation:
Add to sys.txt
1=",map_ta,\Storage Card\iGO8,\Storage Card\iGO8,"
2=",map_nt,\Storage Card\iGO8,\Storage Card\iGO8,"
3=",map_ot,\Storage Card\iGO8,\Storage Card\iGO8,"
4=",map_us,\Storage Card\iGO8,\Storage Card\iGO8,"
;---first path - path to content folder, second - to igo8.exe.
;Examples if maps and igo on the same place:
and 'changer' key not required
Unpack "mapchanger" folder into directory where igo8.exe installed (typicaly \Storage Card\IGO8).
Copy map files:
Teleatlas -> map
navteq -> map_nt
Other -> map_ot
User -> map_us
There is a possibility to specify the name of the map provider for MapChanger menu buttons:
If not to specify it the text on buttons will be by default (TELEATLAS, NAVTEQ, OTHER, USER).
Configure MapChanger action in "Short menu settings" and test it.
Possibility of search of history on a name (the name filter), sortings according to a name, sortings according to time.
Added skin compatability with version 8.3.4 (Support Driver Alerts):
- Automatically detects the version of iGO8.exe (menu items for Driver Alerts will only exe 220.127.116.11680 and only this exe will show road signs) (data.zip can be left on the version 8.3.2 in it (data.zip) no changes are necessary) (respectively, while working with exe 8.3.1, 8.3.2 will not have access to the new settings);
- Added voice warning Driver Alerts (sounds can choose from the lists, just like the sound of speeding cameras) (stand-alone volume);
- Signs in the two columns are displayed for the "broad" permissions (400_234, 400_240, 416_234, 480_234, 480_272, 800_480), for "narrow" (240_320, 240_400, 320_240, 480_800) - one;
- If the mark has not one but several additional panels (the sign of distance, time of action, signs of icons), and in doing so will appear the camera, the camera icon can be shifted to the left of the cursor to display all of the sign plate (included settings) (this setting is only for "high resolution" to "narrow" no place);
- Fixed bug data.zip (when displaying characters in a single column of icons are not consistent with the current sign);
- Added support for displaying a single line of characters for the U.S. maps for all resolutions (standard is not fully implemented for 320_240);
- Thanks Andron66 (he did a great job - redrew all the signs, say thank you) for the devices, VGA and WVGA displays signs in high quality (unstretched). Additionally changed the picture icons to display them in the same style with text boxes.
Allow input from the numeric keypad for the values (You can then enter any value), which you cannot do with sliders:
- Change the angle for the intellectual scale (full transition to the digital keyboard);
- Change the distance and time to activate the screen saver mode (two switchable input method: sliders or keyboard input method is stored);
- Change the delay time when disconnecting the external power supply and when you reach the final destination (full transition to the digital keyboard);
- Change the values (low, critical) battery (fully transition to the digital keyboard, keyboard extended range 0 .. 50);
- Change the values exceeding the allowable speed (two switchable input method: sliders or keyboard input method is stored, for the keyboard extended range -50 .. 50);
- Change the values of sensing range of visual and audible warnings for the cameras (which support the control of distance) (two switchable input method: sliders or keyboard input method is stored, for the keyboard extended range 0 .. 10 km);
- Change the values exceeding the allowable speed cameras (two switchable input method: sliders or keyboard input method is stored);
- Change the distance the appearance of signs Driver Alerts (two switchable input method: sliders or keyboard input method is stored);
When you can enter negative values a new button appears at the bottom "+ \ -".
New custom actions after the completion of the route (arrival at finish) (Options-Settings-power device):
- Six courses of action after the completion of the route (arrival at the destination) (nothing visual message, exit the program, turn off the device, launch an external program, the implementation of actions from a list of actions for a brief menu);
- Independent of the power management mode delay
Added a new option "Add POI in the position of GPS" in the Short menu buttons (idea Andron66):
- By pressing the button is added to POI;
- In the process of implementation is enough to choose a subgroup (it should be located in the group "My POI") (for selection will be available to all subgroups of the group, if they do not, then nothing will have no effect);
- Called sub-groups and assign them to icons can be at its discretion.
Changes to the regime "Screen Saver" (Screen saver):
- Mode "Screen Saver" appears in its own state (a little easier to separate regimes "Screen Saver" and "Cab") (formerly code of this regime was part of "Cab");
- Two themes saver (time, current speed);
- Independent ability to display the pointer of the next maneuver;
- Independent ability to display signs of direction for striped panels;
- The possibility of each topic at the bottom of the screen to display additional data fields (2 or 3, depending on the resolution) (click on the field - Select field value, long press - hide fields);
- Individual choice of background screen saver;
- Add button-cell position in the GPS-;
- Control of information display in the screen saver (Index of maneuver, the subject text, guide bars and shields, preventing the camera changes its position or size depending on the availability of other data) (used to be overlapping and confusing);
Possibility of using a skin with a version 8.3.4.hhh profile management of commercial vehicles (Truck profiles) (in the skin package is an initial file defaults \ truck_profiles.ini (it must be copied into the same folder defaults to the root of the program next to data.zip )):
- Change profile in the skin menu (access menu Truck profiles will appear only when using 8.3.4.hhh and the choice of an appropriate vehicle (truck) in the Menu-Options-Settings of the route);
- View the menu skin (no change) the parameters of the default profile;
- Edit menu skin profile parameters (profile icon, the name of your profile; dimensions (length, width, height) of the vehicle axles and the maximum speed, the type of dangerous goods).
Possibility of using the skin with the version 8.3.4.hhh quick editing of the current camera: - When you turn this feature on the camera icon (except the camera with the type of "Section") in the cabin or the screen saver button appears; - Options for action when you click on this button (to remove a confirmation to delete without confirmation, edit) (for the first two options - one type of icon button appears for the third - the other); - Long press on the button to edit / remove - go to the settings screen function; - To increase the area click on the icon of the speed limit the camera (if it is available for this type) duplicates press the edit / delete; - Function works in the "Screen Saver"; - When you choose "Edit" is the successive appearance of screens with the choice of camera, selectable direction of the camera, choice of speed cameras; - The current value (type, direction, speed) in each of the selection screen will display a flashing frame; - In each of the selection screen, enable the button "Delete cell" (possible options: the confirmation / non confirmation - changes in the settings); - The appearance of each of the screens can be switched off in the settings (options "Change type", etc.); - If you select "Edit" and has a challenge for all three screens (or the type of the current camera when you turn off the Change of the type "does not change the direction and speed, for example, type" POI "or" Children "), then place a call request to remove cameras . - Actions with the camera (deleting / editing) will be made after travel camera, if the call such an action (pressing the button) occurred at the time of the camera.
Ability to work with different profiles, the camera settings: - 4 your profile (you can change the names) switchable settings; - Profile includes all camera settings; - All settings editable in the current profile is automatically saved; - The possibility of sequential switching profiles in the cab (short button menu) and the intro (long press on the icon of the current chamber), followed by the name of a new indication profile.
1. Changes from dima8389: when "pedestrian" (long press of the screen "Quick Menu" button on the change of vehicle or in the planning of the map screen to the same button) can be written in the history of the element with the name "current situation" (a simplified version of the function Return to the car ");
2. Added ability to configure the long press the Menu button cab immediately launch an external program (the first in the list of external programs).
3. Ability to display on the screen is dynamically updated list of POI, the situation around the GPS (thanks for the picture Andron66);
Features and working principle:
- You can enable / disable option;
- List available under this option is enabled after determining the position of GPS; the appearance of shields disappear, while working with the map (clicking, moving) disappears, you can view the job options and a simulation without signal GPS (in the simulation POI search will take place around the last saved position GPS) ;
- Possible adjustment range search;
- Can configure the buttons display a list of Governors (less, next page, previous page) (when the control button long press turns on the list item list);
- After searching through a list of approximately 10 seconds of an automatic transition to the first page;
- Can set the maximum number of rows to display a list of the cabin (the current number of rows dynamically changed during the movement depending on the availability of on-screen elements such as a sign prohibiting the cabin lamps, traffic signs on the fringes (map above), control buttons, lists, etc.) ;
- The list could include: All POI / Just visible on the map;
- Possible to configure the filter name POI (for example, the word "drugstore" in the list will get POI (from all or only visible on the map), containing the name of the word "drugstore");
- Possible setting distance to maneuver in the presence of active route for the automatic folding / unfolding of the list;
- If the specified settings (distance, filter, etc.) list is empty, the button appears on the screen (gray icon POI), click on that - go to the settings;
- For quick access to additional settings available long press on the button "Hide", a long press on the button minimized (collapsed) list;
- Aka the appearance of a nonempty list of events POI while driving (the sound can be selected in the options menu);
- List of POI is available in the screen saver (you can choose to display only the cab / only for the screen saver / for both modes) (for savers maximum number of rows list is not regulated in options and restricted size of free area) (in the intro with the appearance of billboards list disappears, with appearance of the camera list disappears (except 480_234, 480_272));
4. Rectification observed in 1.1.34.
Automatically save in the history of the current GPS position with the occurrence of certain events (thanks dima8389): - An opportunity to record such events: switch to a pedestrian from anywhere in the program, start the program; exit; disappearance of the signal GPS (short-term jumps signal cut off) to turn off the device from different locations (on-screen buttons to exit the menu, auto power off when you reach the finish line , turning off the external power supply) (including hard-off button, auto position in history when you turn off hard-button is not guaranteed for all devices); - Element name contains the name of history, time, date; - Icon element of history is the same as an icon "My POI" - For each of the events can turn autosave independently of the other (Menu-Settings-Navigation-Back to mashineya); - Autosave will occur if the item differs significantly from the last saved.
Profiles settings visibility POI (icon, visibility, stopping distance) (Menu-Control-POI-profiles): - Save the current settings in the profile visibility; - Restore settings visibility of previously saved profiles; - The name of the saved profile you can edit in the menu; - Profiles can be deleted from the menu.
Ability to disable the display of maps in the cockpit during the recalculation of the route (thanks dima8389) (allows a little difficult to reduce the time of recalculation of routes).
Mode Madness (offroad):
- When enabled, and an active route, all the points in the last perekonvertiruyutsya roadless (offroad);
- Shutdown mode and an active route, all points of the last perekonvertiruyutsya back to the "road" (onroad);
- Switches to Menu-Options-Plan a route-Options (2 pages), optional on / off (consistently) can be configured on a brief menu button, for some permits switch mode is a fast (quick) menu (with pictures thanks Andron66) ;
- When loading a route from the list of saved routes, intermediate points will be converted to the "road" or off-road, depending on, off or off-road mode;
- When the regime (and the availability of the route) signs in the field maneuvers will be displayed next and the second maneuver (in this case, the intermediate point or finish line), displaying the distance to them will work as well as in normal mode (color change);
- When the regime (and the presence of the route) depending on the distance to the next maneuver is similar machine will trigger the inclusion of viewing modes and screen savers;
- Pointer to maneuver when the mode is available in the intro;
- As cleanly IGO does not travel off-road intermediate points, or finish, is made compulsory passage (achievement) route points (the distance at which we can assume that point is reached, - settings) (озвучка achievement points from the current voice (voice) packet).

Create an audio directory and unzip the
audio file into the that directory, like this:
To contribute language files or voice
files, please email them to me and I will add them to the web site: CLICK HERE
EXAMPLE OF HOW TO SET UP SPEED CAMERA VOICE FILES:
NOTE: All of the voice
files have been updated to work with the new diMka skins (they include the
needed script files). If you are upgrading to the new version of the diMka
skin you will have to download the new voice files below and put them in the
same directory as before.
ULTRA VOICES Put the files in a directory voice_male and voices_female in the audio\XX folder. Where XX is the letters for the country. American would be US, French would be FR. Like this:
IGO 2006 VOICES Just place all the files in the audio folder, DO NOT put them in sub-folder.
