    "... but the color of the map is a great difference from the original one..."


    I do not understand the meaning, the file is just for a change. Maybe You don't like it, but....

    Default SUPER spyder !!!

    Wow great work spyder!
    I thought the colors are part of the map supplied by TomTom here or OSM.
    Like many other user I don't like the the contrastless new colors from the newer Sygic versions.
    Because of this reason I used for a long time the legendary Sygic 14.3.4 till observing that SygicInCar uses the same map colors like the older Sygic versions although I like more the traffic anouncement from standard Sygic compared to SygicInCar.
    I tried your map.dat with Sygic 17.4.19 TomTom V9 2018.03 maps and the colors are much better compared to original Sygic map.dat.
    How is this map.dat generated - is there a way to modify colors on my own in a readable file and generate the map.dat file afterwards?

    No, at the moment.

    In 2010 somebody developed a tool called "sygic color" it was the ultimate Sygic Drive customization Tool.
    And something like this tool would be great for the actual Sygic versions.
    I like the design from Sygic 14.3.4 using white text on black background and it was possible to change the font size in Sygic itsself.
    The font size used in actual Sygic is to small especially for older people having problems with focusing in the near distance.
    I would like to increase the font size and colors as well.

    The content of the "sygic color" tool was the following:

    - Change Colors, Font Types and Sizes,
    - Extract and change icons and bitmaps
    - Change roads visibility and draw style.
    - Import Color & Font configuration from another sygic folder.

    e.g. "Sygic Colors" Help

    Is map.dat created with SQLite like offlinespeedcam.dat?
    I tried to open map.dat with DB browser but it is asking for a password.

    Hello spyder,
    after some time using your map.dat with the new colors I observed that the blue navigation line is very thin and sometimes it is difficult to see where to drive next on the map.
    Would it be possible for you to generate an updated map.dat with a bold and purple navigation line like used in SygicCar, SygicTruck and Sygic 14.3.4?
    I have attached an example with your map.dat used on the right side and in my opinion the other, better viewable, bold purple navigation line on the left side.
    Regards joxsi

    It's too heavy work, that requires investigations and tests, it takes too much time.

    I did not mean all colors e.g. only the navigation lane color to be changed from blue to purple. Do you think this single color change could be done by you?

    At the moment it's impossible for me. Route color isn't map color.

    OK I understand, thanks a lot for your answer.
    There are so many Sygiy users complaining about these Sygic colors I can not understand why Sygic do not improves the color like in the older versions or in truck and car versions.
    And Google navigation will come now also with speedcam notification for free ... but still I like to use Sygic
