    new branding update March 2020

    Hi everyone in this wonderful 2020. /s
    I've been playing around with my icons and believe I have a solution to the "branding". I put branding in quotes because I don't need the branding.zip anymore. I've always used it on a wince system but never got it to run properly on an android version until today. What I do is inject my files into the data.zip directly. What this means is in theory I can inject it into any data.zip on wince, Android and POSSIBLY Nextgen. I haven't tried Nextgen yet but will do so eventually.

    If anyone is interested in testing it you can upload your data.zip to me and I'll try it out. I have 800x600 but I could also try other resolutions with the gas icons. (It would take a while to do all icons).

    Hello @zzyzxroad,

    I'm interested in your post above as I've been messing about with branding.zip file for a few weeks and am struggling to get consistent results. Is it possible to post your data.zip with a brief outline of the changes you have made so I can try your methods? Having you change my data.zip wont help much as I'm in New Zealand and very few (if any) USA Petrol companies operate here.

    I think if I were to upload it it would be more of an essay to explain it. It would be easier, and more enjoyable, to make some New Zealand gas icons for you. What stations are you looking for? Also, I could even make a few coffee shops or stores to suite your needs.[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Out of curiosity, try this zip file attached. unzip the contents. add them to your data.zip, either in the "UI_Igo9" or "ui_android" folder. Backup your poi_visibilities.txt from your "save" folder and replace it with the one I have.

    Thanks,
    I understand now what you mean about the essay . Your approach
    has a lot in common with creating icons for kml files, something it took a lot of study and reading to understand. I must say I'm very impressed you
    were able to identify the main gas retailers on our little islands and find the logos for them!

    So far I've only been able to do a limited test on my WinCE device and your files work well. The experiment has uncovered a few inconsistencies in the way HERE and TomTom categorise pois, e.g TomTom lists g.a.s. as GAS, and PAK'nSAVE also appears as PAK 'nSAVE (with a space).

    I think I can overcome these differences by adding a few more lines to poi_visibilities.txt covering the variations. I assume there is no reason why in poi_visibilities.txt I cannot have multiple lines pointing at the same icon?

    I look forward to having a try and testing on my android phone when time permits.

    His branding is NOT for Android/NextGen. But...

    Upload your data.zip to some cloud service (zippyshare, 1fichier...) and send him a link (post it here)
    Write your phone resolution.
    Good luck. It is much more work than it looks...
    Before asking a question, know it's already discussed here and at 99.9% is not unique. Use search.

    Many questions become very arduous, a lot of time chewed deja vu...Since we have lost all the year of work and effort, many people have no will to answer the same questions again. Me neither. Use a search, please.
