Hi,

i am using this Ultra skin, and it's awesome.

Is it possible, to add an exact address in the Add via menu ? (like by the Destination menu, with street address etc.)

Thank you!

Janos

Are you talking about the Amigo Ultra Skin? If so Linknet has said elswhere on this forum that his Skin 1.0.1 only allows you to add a via by tapping on the screen, it wasn't meant e.g. to add several stops on route.

If it's iGO8 then Linknet's 6.0.XX will allow you to do it.

I found THIS site useful.

Just found the other post and notice there is a version 1.0.2 which appears to do what you want.

Hi Linknet. A colleague has just gone down the sat nav route (no pun intended) and purchased iGO Amigo, speaking on the phone he said it would be nice to have 'via's' and I pointed him to your download. He said it's very good but can't find a way of 'finding POI on route'. Not being able to 'play' with his device I don't know whether it's because it can't be done or he can't do it. Is there a way?

Thanks BC.


After selecting a destination and pressing the "Go" button return to the "Destination Easy Find" menu (if you are using the Ultra Skin then tap and hold on the "Add Via" button to show the "Destination" button) and then you have the following options:

Destination ► Find Places ► Petrol Station (On My Route)
Destination ► Find Places ► Restaurant (On My Route)
Destination ► Find Places ► Other Places ► Along My Route

However, any of these options sets the POI as the final destination (as in the standard Amigo) and not as a via point. So when you reach the POI you need to reselect your original destination which will be shown on the "Destination Easy Find" menu as the default selection.

The "Add Via" option that I have added is intended to be a means of modifying the route rather then a full blown itinerary with places to visit along the route.

Edit:
Version 1.0.2 of the Ultra Skin adds the option to search for places around the cursor or along the route and then add them as via points.

Hi,

thank you for your response.

Yes, i am using the amigo version.

I have downloaded the newer version of ultra skin too.
There is no option to specify the exact location, only the city, or some poi-s.

What i want to have, is to specify the exact location - with streetname, number , just like in the Find address menu.
