Is there an easy way of changing screen colours? The contrast on my PDA in bright sunlight is nothing like as good as TomTom

There are a few colour profile options in Map Options, that may make viewing easier.

I've tried all of those, but they are all a little washed out on my 2210. TomTom colours are pretty good, and I'd like to change to something like that

Hi Robin , there are some other colour schemes around , I found one called PlusXania that's not bad , but in use I agree , the colours do look a bit washed out . I haven't seen anywhere a way of changing the green coulor of the route road . For me the navigation display is not as clear as tomtom .
The best part of iGO is the fast calculation and the routing for Trucks , this routing does help to avoid the narrow roads that TomTom offers , I find it good for a Motorhome .

Any idea where I can find it? I tried a Google search for PlusXania and all I got was your post!!!

Thanks for the link Unclebill. I tried several, and there are certainly some which show more contrast than the supplied schemes. Haven't tried them in a real life situation yet, but Beemer has a bright red route line, which might show up well. Monopoly is very similar.

Hi Robin , I agree Beemer is best , however I still find the display far inferior to the TomTom route map . The road size is just too small and so are the road names . When I go back to TomTom it's so much clearer , the road ahead is well defined and the zoom to roundabouts clearly indicates the correct exit . Maybe it's just an age thing .
All I need is a way of saving the planned iGo route or the iGO pins (via points? ) to a folder in the pda , convert and paste to the TomTom itinerary folder . Should be possible , you can put Googlearth itinerary into TomTom with the Tyre application .
Has anyone done this ?
Regards Bill
