    how to set up muli map directories?

    is it possible to have more then one map directory for igo 8?

    I like to put the map for the state i use most on the "my flash disk", and the rest on the "storage card".
    how can i do that?

    Re: how to set up muli map directories?

    Hi.
    I've also a question about directories.
    I've Igo8, Amigo & primo.
    I want to use only 1 map folder.
    How can I do this?
    otherwise I'm obliged to have 3 times the same maps on each nav software.
    Thanks.

    you have to edit sys.txt file:


    [folders]
    content="\Storage Card\igo\CONTENT"

    "srorage card" has to be your storage dcard name (so if yours is sdcard write "sdcard")

    i had memory problem with it so now i have 4 content folder (igo8, amigo, amigo with freddysam's skin and primo).

    StorageCard\igo8\content\building\
    Your 3D building files go in this folder files ending in .3dc (3D building) and .3dl (3d Landmark)

    StorageCard\igo8\content\dem\
    Your terrain files go in here (.dem)

    StorageCard\igo8\content\lang\
    Language files go in here, these are for the text in the menus, not the voices. All files end in .zip and usually begin with Lang_filename.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\map\
    Your map files go in here, files have the .fbl extension, make sure you have iGo 2008 files not miomap 3.3 which have the poi's integrated in the files and won't work.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\phoneme\
    Phoneme files go here, they are used by TTS to improve pronunciation, files end in a .ph extension.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\poi\
    POI files go in here, these are what allow you to find Points of interest, without these you can't look for anything except addresses. Files contain the .poi extension.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\scheme\
    These files are what determine the colors of the roads and terrain in the map. Files are all .zip files.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\skin
    Skins to determine the look of the program. All files in this folder are .zip files.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\speedcam\
    Speedcam files go in here. I have one file in here SpeedcamUpdates.spud, others can chime in on what other types of files besides .spud files work.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\texture\
    This folder contains the arrows and stuff that appear on the map, like the moving right arrow for right turns. All files are .tex.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\userdata
    Where iGo stores all sorts of user data like saved routes etc.

    StorageCard\igo8\content\voice\
    Voice files go in here, both TTS and non-TTS. All files are zips, though TTS requires extra dll's to make it work.
