    Great simple skin. I know its extra work, but please add HD radio skin. Also, I would suggest a Day skin theme which is mainly white background where the text is black and the buttons are white with black border for all those people out there with no transflective screens.

    THe HD radio skin is actually in the works. But a day skin versus night skin wont happen. THe idea is to keep the same theme as garmin so when switching skins everything looks as though it is part of garmin mobile pc. So all color schemes and layouts will stay as they are.
    I dont use a transflective screen and actually have no problem using this. If you cant see your screen in the day very well, try cleaning it. After they get smudged up with finger prints it makes them hard for anyone to see.

    I agree with Thunderstick, A lot of the skins out there are visible enough for day or night. And having a white background with black text is just really wierd to me. I have a setting in hAv1c+V3 for it, but when I've used it, it seemed less visible than the opposite.

    The other option is someone can girsplit the images out of GMPC and have two que.exe's, one for day, one for night. And then (once released) take all of Thunderstick's images, invert and build the second skin.

    Yeah, I understand that you want to make it look as cohesive and as garmin as possible. I just feel that with lighter background which doesn't have to be white that visibility will be better. Garmin itself uses a light greyish white background with black bordered buttons and black text.


    Monkeyracer's solutions sounds like a great idea too. However, I am sure that if thunderstick says that its quite visible and he doesn't even have a transflective screen than it will be just fine, and all my worries is probably for nothing. Thats great to hear that HD skin is in the works. Keep up the great work, thunderstick.
