  • iGuidance: European maps on USA V3 version

    HI all !

    It's possible to use the European maps (v.2.1.3) in the version USA V3 ?

    Because my European version of iGuidance don't have the UMPC version

    Yes, you can if you want to.
    WARNING: Do it at your own risk, do not blame me, or anyone else if you screw up iGuidance.
    What you need? iGuidance software, ofcourse. HexEditor (I use XVI23)

    - Copy iG V2.x map folder to iG V3 installation folder (C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\Maps). Make sure you make a backup copy of the maps folder for both version.
    - Run iGuidance.exe or iGuidanceUMPC.exe and it will throw an error on you. Notice of an error. Wrong File Version Data file: linkinfo.bin: LI0X!=LI07. Basically it said that you can use previous map version in iG V3.
    - Write down LI0X where 0X is the linkinfo file of your iG 2.X. iG V3 linkinfo is 07. Click okay to close the error (iGuidance exit).
    - Open linkinfo.bin file in your Hex Editor and search (Text) for LI0X. It's the first 4 characters of the file. On the TEXT side not HEX.
    - Change LI0X to LI07.
    - Save linkinfo.bin and close the file.

    - Run iGuidance.exe or iGuidanceUMPC.exe and it will throw another error on you. Notice of an error. Wrong File Version Data file: name.bin: NM0X!=NM02.
    - Write down NM0X. Click okay to close the error (iGuidance will run BTW).
    - Open name.bin file in your Hex Editor and search (Text) for NM0X. It's the first 4 characters of the file. On the TEXT side not HEX.
    - Change NM0X to NM02.
    - Save name.bin and close the file and close your hex editor.

    Now Run iG and enjoy.
    Problem: Street name does NOT show on the map. It displays some weird thing. It could also be the setting problem or theme.ini problem. I dont' know, you guys find out more.

          iGuidance: European maps on USA V4 version

          I ran the IG 2.1.2 version with european maps and have no problems at all.
          Viewing the screens of the version 4 I must say that the old interface that I have on v2 really sucks!!

          I easily find the version 4 of the main program with no maps on the net but I'm not sure I can use the maps that I already have (licensed!).
          So my question: is there some way to load old version maps (as the v2 that I have) on the version 4 of IG?

            Since you are knowledgeable about hex editing iguidance, do you know how to change the default zoom level?
