Just for info linknet.. Choup has some interesting takes on the poor visibility of the signpost directional arrows:


Bigger arrows:


That looks good but he's had to considerably darken the right hand signpost, would this still be readable at night with the display dimmed ?

I don't like the crossed out arrows I'm afraid, looks a bit confusing. Confused

@ fr0d0

I find your "loading.bmp" very interesting, you can bring it in because I use 240x320 Ultra Skin in portrait mode
Thank you

Perfect linknet.

One observation, maybe it's my OAP brain, but roundabout, motorway exits and road signs all show white for route to be taken. I got caught out today, I noticed a couple of lorries playing 'rolling road block', the lane arrows popped up showing orange left and three white straight on, so thinking 'white straight on' I started overtaking, only to see the motorway sign pop-up showing I needed to leave the motorway. Can't complain, it was a nice ride to the next turnoff. Embarassed

Is there any way the lane arrows could be changed to match the road signs?

The signpost lane arrows and backgrounds already match the road signs, so white arrows on a blue background are the lanes to take and dim red arrows on a red background are the lanes not to take.

Can't really do much more than that, maybe the signpost data was just wrong for that junction.

Sorry linknet, I never made myself clear.

On a few occasions the older style lane arrows, as in v5, appear prior to the newer road signs as e.g. \Orange\White|White/White| (orange for route to be taken). but not every junction. If these could show the same as in v5 i.e grey/red transparent for off route lane/s and white/green for on route lane/s, I think it could be a bit clearer.

I understand now, the older style arrow colours should match the signpost lane arrow colours. I agree and will have a look at it.

Thanks linknet. Everything else appears to be perfect.

PS Kicker is pretty good, although it is an Ultra clone. Only it adds another bottom bar that you can't configure off???


Not only, unfortunately.
I have clocked up with kikker since I've started to use iGo on Omnia (res 400x240).
The problem is with Gurjon or Dimka, same: with small screen the amount of controls visible is making them too small for reading.
So, I still think that linknet's Ultra is the best choice, but for my device I have to use the clone.
Btw.: kikker works on the speedcam audible alerts implementation, so it can be good alternative for me.

I really don't understand the fuss about the audible warnings on speedcams. With the latest database, all mobile position were entered as well. This gave a warning on every corner of the street where a cam was once spotted. Horrible! I've quit using this one and use an alternative version without mobile cam positions. For the mobile cams, I trust my Amaryllo Trinity TMC/GPS receiver to warn me for an actual speedcam.

Emmm... Giantbiker73. Well, I think that MOBILE cameras audible warning you sahll be able to easily switch off (it was possible in Ultra skin 5.0 to INDIVIDUALLY set the kind of speedcam warnings on and off, i.e. on for gatso and average speed, off for mobile).
The principle is: with previous viersion the user had a choice. With this: he has not.
And, second thing:
with iGo you can have the working TMC as well with TMC receiver connected.

I do use a TMC receiver, but I don't get a warning even though the TMC data has received a speedcamara warning. What sort of warning do you get?

Thanks,
