Hi, Could anyone please tell me in simple terms how to put a new set of icons onto IGO8, the standard ones are very basic and the ones I have found cover just about every icon I will need.
many thanks

Never done it myself, but most of the icons are in a file called 'branding.zip' but I don't know the format.

I have seen a detail on this subject that says the following:-
Open IGO8
Open branding file --in branding file there is a folder called Common
put your new icons into this folder


Does that sound correct or does anybody know different?

I've got a set, but they are mostly US, but there are a lot of UK icons in there as well.
PM me your email and I'll send them to you. Problem is that it's about 10Mb

I was hoping that someone out there has the solution as to how you put new icons on IGO8 as the blue ones that come with it are not very good. I have download a file containing lots of icons--just need to know where they go!!!!

You should have a file called Branding.zip in the root of the iGO8 folder. The Icons go in there, in the branding.zip\ui-igo8\common folder along with associated .spr files, but as to what format the icons take and how they are associated with the various POIs, I havn't a clue.
