It's worked real well but I always like to play with things.
The Mio forums are full of threads on skinning various Mios.
I tried to talk myself out of it for a while but I finally found a "must have" feature only available by skinning. Mio normally offers 3 routing options, Fastest, Economical, and Shortest. Most of the skins offer a 4th option of Easy. I wasn't sure what that meant but I had to have it.
The GpsPasSion forums are rich with help on Mios but they are impossible to navigate. I had found a skin submitted by user phi38. Here's a link to it.
Unfortunately, many of the skins are built on top of a Belgian update. When you start MioMap with this skin, you'll get the following error:
FFUIERROR: Unknown commandTo correct this is tricky.
Script [sc_detectSKU] at tick 0
Extract the .zip file into a folder. Go to \mio\480_272\ui\default_setup.ui and open it with Notepad. Find the line "HAS_AUS_MAP vIsAUSSKU" and comment it by putting a semicolon in the first column. Save it back and rezip this folder.
To change the skin on a Mio, all you have to do is connect it to your PC via a standard USB cable. It will then appear as a USB drive to Windows. By the way, if you have an SD card in the Mio, you'll also see that as a separate drive.
After you can see the flash drive, rename \miomap\miomap\data.zip to something else, e.g. OEM_data.zip. Then just copy the skin .zip file to the \miomap\miomap\ on the flash drive and rename it to data.zip.
That's it. Restart MioMap and you'll have your new skin.
