I couldn't find any topic focused on the "Compass icon" positioned on left side of the RT6 navigation screen.
APPEAL TO ALL FORUM VISITORS
This thread is not a survey who likes the Compass icon and who doesn't.
So I'm asking kindly all the visitors who like the Compass icon on their RT6 not to read this any further.
Thanks for understanding!
Now let me explain you my dilemma. Maybe someone knows hot to help me... if it is technical possible.
I have 4 main screen options:
1. Compass + Consumption (current / Route1 / Route2 / Oil and Water temperature + Tire Pressure)
2. Compass + Music (Radio / CD / MP3)
3. Compass + Small navigation map
4. Full screen navigation map
I would like to remove Compass with Current consumption to have following screen options:
1. Current consumption + Consumption (current / Route1 / Route2 / Oil and Water temperature + Tire Pressure)
2. Current consumption+ Music (Radio / CD / MP3)
3. Current consumption+ Small navigation map
4. Full screen navigation map
Hope this change is possible and someone out there has a solution or instructions how to substitute the Compass icon with something else.
Without creating a custom firmware (which I highly doubt someone is capable of doing, without bricking the entire RT6 unit), there is no such feature ... because it is a matter of not only the design layout, but the features being displayed on each screen ... the compass is there when you don't have an active route ... if you have an active route, you'll then have the active route along the other screens (that is useful) ... you can't change that ... I too would very much like the main screen to be just radio/music info, like the RNEG has, full width, but, I decided I can live with the compass for now ... ...
vborovic thank you again for sharing your deep knowledge about RT6.
I would keep the feature of showing active route, but when I do not have active route I would prefer any other combination of existing features (consumption + radio, etc.).
It seems we all have to live with the compass. Until someone at PSA or someone else decides to make the Compass feature more flexible - through settings.
I can imagine majority of people would accept the RT6 set-up as it is and complain over it, if they would not like it. But there are also us... few, happy few who would like to change, personalize things to our needs, requirements,...
Maybe someone from PSA is tracking this forum and they will fix this with next version of RT6 SW.
When I had the USB BOX, I've tried contacting the manufacturer through different means, to ask them why the track names aren't displayed on the RNEG ... a lost cause ... I'd say the same is with this issue ... unless someone can reverse program the entire FW successfully and that it actually works, I don't think any future update will change this current behavior ... I wish it turns out I was wrong in the near future, but I can't be that much of an optimist ...
Thats weird, i try to reply but no success
I have used MiraScripts and editor to pull the files from RT6 (You can do it without taking files from RT6 by downloading 2.80 update (if You have)),
edited the files i found in manual of te editor, and then made one transparent image of size of the compass, downloaded transparent picture with logo, used these
files in editor and then uploaded only the file i have edited, restarted the RT6 and voila.
If You want to have the compass replaced on all the skins, You have to edit those files too
That possibility was brought up a few months ago on the forum, but that's just cheating if you will ... ... you can replace many images that way, some members have even figured out how to do completely new themes (replacing the default ones), saw some examples on other forums, but so far no one figured out how to have full screen radio information, completely eliminating the compass space on the left third ...
