    BlueIce summer skin

    Here's a new skin for RR & MM. I've aimed to make it as visible as possible when the sun is glaring on the screen. It's still a work in progress. You suggestions are welcome.

    My design goal assumes that the user will using the GPS screen the most and occasionally go to the playlist screen to choose new tracks/playlists. I've also strip out everything from the MM widgets, I'll post my MM settings in a later post here. I've changed the MM vertical scrollbar so it is now horizontal and easier to use, ie. click close to the street text it zoom close to the steet, click on the city text and it will zoom out to the city region (big city) and so on.

    One thing that does not work well is the MM keyboard. I work on it have have a fix shortly.

    GPS Screen:


    PlayList/Audio screen:


    I'll set up a server to host these skins shortly, if anyone wants to try them.

    heyyy you have a tablet too!

    Can you please post the GPS image without the annotations? I cant see what it looks like with your ugly handwriting all over it! (just kidding, but it makes it difficult to imagine the skin)

    I'm not sure the writing/scribbling will be very clear in the car but looks kind of cool in a graffiti kind of way

    Sorry about the handwriting, never got the hang of it! Here it is without my scrawling:


    Peoples, finding good icons with a similar boxy style is a pain in the ***. I spent a good hour looking for a keyboard icon that would work well, and then I gave up and picked a checkmark. As you can see I am not a designer and don't have a good imagination!
