Rosen GM1010 GPS Application Usage & Customization Thread

As I sell more and more of these GM1010 kits to other members, I think it makes sense to start a thread to go over some of the features and ways to customize the iGo Primo 2.4 GPS application. It's an *extremely* powerful and configurable application.

I have *so* much information to share, but I'm going to start with the basics since most folks aren't familiar with iGo Primo at all. Also, since I set it up with a custom skin, some of the functions are not obvious at all (the skin has a lot of "hotspots" and have both a regular "touch" function as well as a "touch and hold" function. And some of the hotspots are invisible, so you'd never know they were even there.

So as a first post, I created a screenshot of the main navigation screen (no route defined) and put circles around the hotspots and also provided a quick explanation for what that icon/hotspot does. The next post will be the same thing, but will highlight some additional hotspots that exist when you have a route defined.

The pink circles highlight "invisible" hotspots. I hope this helps! I will be providing MUCH, MUCH more information in upcoming posts! Ignore the camera icon that I crossed out with an "X". You can enable the camera icon in order to create screenshots of the screen - normally, you won't see that.



Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

Here is a screenshot showing the additional hotspots that are available when you have a route defined. All of the hotspots that are available when a route in not defied still apply as well (the first picture) - these are just additional hotspots related to the route:



Also, you'll notice that the "angle" of the 3D display is different in this screenshot - that is because as you approach a turn, the map automatically goes more and more towards a 2D type of display, which is a nice feature - it allows you to get a better view of the intersection or turn, while still having the benefits of a 3D display. After the maneuver, the display will go back to a full 3D view (unless the next maneuver is very quick).

Haven't decided what topic to go over next (there are so many!), but if anyone has any suggestions or specific questions, don't hesitate to ask! Otherwise, I'll probably just start by reviewing how the GPS application is laid out on the SD card - this will be important as we get deeper and deeper into the all of customizations you can do.

Found (2) new US TTS voices today (Allison and Steven) - still testing, but so far all seems well! So we'll now have a total of (10) US English TTS voices:

Loquendo TTS Voices:
- Dave
- Susan
- Allison
- Steven

Nuance TTS Voices:
- Ira
- Jill
- Paris
- Penelope
- Samantha
- Tom

Will make a post soon to show how to add new voices and customize some of the phrases they say.

Found some more cool things you can do with the TTS voices today... You tell the TTS voices to make sounds like:

- Cough
- Cry
- Eh
- Kiss
- Laugh
- Mmm
- Oh
- Sigh
- Sniff
- Swallow
- Throat
- Whistle
- Yawn

And there are multiple "versions" of each. So, for example, I could have it sigh before it says "Jim, you're speeding again - the speed limit is 45 miles per hour". :-)

Can also add reverb, give the voices multiple different "robot voice" effects, change the language mid-sentenance, change the voice mid-sentenance, etc. Lots of cool "tags" you can insert into the TTS text for this kind of stuff.

The Primo navigation app is absolutely ridiculous in terms of how much you can customize it.

Working on a post showing how the GPS SD card is laid out in detail - which will then lead into some of the more advanced customizations you can do (things that you can't do via the GPS app interface directly). Things like customizing the TTS phrases, changing the size of the car icons (in 2D and/or 3D mode), changing the size and style of the street name labels on the maps, setting up a "Map Changer" function so you switch between HERE and TomTom maps (or different "sets" of maps), adding more TTS functionality, skin installation, changing routing decision details, changing map zoom levels and angles, changing where the app starts at (main menu, map screen, find destination screen, etc). Lots of cool stuff coming!

I'll also start uploading files as well - things like add-ons, cars (I have the 8th gen Impala in all colors now), etc.

Changing the GPS loading screen

Ok, now that the basics are out of the way, we're going to get started on some of the more advanced customizations! First up is how to change the GPS loading screen....

Changing the GPS loading screen on the Rosen 1010 is actually very easy to do if you just want to show a static image with no progress indicator. Basically, you can use any 800x480 image in .bmp format. All that you have to do is to copy the 800x480 .bmp file to the following folder on the GPS SD card:

nng\ui_igo9\800_480

The .bmp file must be named "loading.bmp". Make sure to save a copy of the existing image in case you want to go back to it (I can also provide it again if needed). I usually just rename the existing image and install the new image. It doesn't' hurt to have "extra" image files in this folder.

That's it! Now, that image will be displayed on the GPS screen as Primo is loading.

However, just like everything else in Primo, you can customize things further if you'd like. For example, if you want to display some sort of progress indicator or text status messages during startup, there are a few other things you need to consider.. During startup, Primo normally displays either a "progress bar" to let you know it's startup progress - or, you can have it display startup "messages" instead (text status updates) - or both. You can also disable both of these startup progress indicators if you'd like and just show a static image. Personally, I like the startup progress bar so you know it's loading and how far along it is, but you can do it however you'd like.

In order to configure the startup "indicator" type and other parameters related to it, you need to make some changes to the main Primo configuration file - sys.txt. This file is a plain text file that controls the way Primo looks and behaves - there are TONS of parameters you can put in this file (hundreds, if not thousands) - and they are NOT formally documented anywhere. You can also run Primo with no sys.txt at all and leave everything at their defaults. The sys.txt file is a very flexible way to configure Primo - and VERY powerful! I'd highly recommend using a simple text editor such as Windows Notepad application to view and edit sys.txt - using something like MS-Word or other more feature-rich editors can corrupt sys.txt and leave Primo in a state where it won't start at all (can easily fix it though). Being able to access and edit these files is a huge benefit compared to the newer Rosen 1210 model where all of this stuff is stored internally and there is no way to access or edit these files. With the 1010, since they are all on an SD card, you are free to customize and enhance the GPS application (or even change the GPS application used completely!). You can even install TomTom or Sygic or any other Win-CE GPS application if you really wanted to (been there, done that - Primo is the best by far!).

So, sys.txt (located in the main "nng" folder on the GPS SD card) is a plain text file that is separated into "sections". Each section has a "header line" that tells Primo what the following parameters are for.

For the GPS loading screen, the header is "[loading]". I personally try to keep the sections in alphabetical order (by the header line) to make things easy to find (the sys.txt file can get very long if you do a lot of customizations). Also, any lines beginning with a semi-colon are commented out and ignored.

Under the "[loading]" header, the following lines control the startup indicator (there are probably others - these are just the lines I've used):

[loading]
show_progressbar=1
show_statustext=0
progressbar_x=213
progressbar_y=153
progressbar_end_x=213
progressbar_end_y=500
text_align=2
text_fontcolor=xFFFFFF

With the above setup, a progress bar indicator would be shown - in general, for boolean entries in sys.txt, a 0 means disabled and a 1 means enabled. Here is a quick explanation of what each of these entries mean:

- show_progressbar - tells Primo whether or not to show the progress bar while loading Primo
- show_statustext - tells Primo whether or not to show the status messages while loading Primo
- progressbar_x - tells Primo where to show the progress bar horizontally (in pixels)
- progressbar_y - tells Primo where to show the progress bar vertically (in pixels)
- progressbar_end_x - tells Primo where to show the "end image" of the progress bar horizontally (in pixels) - this is used if you want the end of the progress bar to be different than the rest.
- progressbar_end_y - tells Primo where to show the "end image" of the progress bar vertically (in pixels)
- text_align - specifies where to show the status text messages, if the show_statustext entry was set to "1" (Left=0, Center=1, Right=2, Justify=3)
- text_fontcolor - specifies what color to use for the loading text font, if enabled.

With the setup used above, a progress bar will be displayed at 213,153 (screen is 800x400). Since I didn't want the "end" of the progress bar to look any different than the rest of the progress bar, I told it that the vertical position for the "end" was 500 (off screen) - this basically "hides" the special "end" of the progress bar. Status text is disabled.

Lastly, besides changing where the progress bar is displayed, you can also change what the progress bar looks like! In the "nng\ui_igo9\800_480" folder, there is another image file called "loading_progressbar.bmp" - this is what the progress bar looks like @ 100%. So besides controlling if and where to display the progress bar, you can actually customize the progress bar itself as well. If you wanted the end of the progress bar to look different than the rest of the progress bar, you can also create a "loading_progressbar_end.bmp" file as well. Since we're "hiding" the special end of the progress bar in this setup anyway, there is no point in creating a special end image here.

One more note... The "nng\ui_igo9" folder only contains files that "override" the defaults. The default files are stored in the "data.zip" file and/or the skin file. Basically, Primo uses the files in data.zip first, then the skin file (nng\content\skins), then the file in "nng\ui_igo9", if it exists. The data.zip file is another extremely important file in Primo. It contains all of the main image and user interface files. Instead of replacing files in data.zip if you want to change them, putting the files in "nng\ui_igo9" just gives you an easy way to "override" the defaults - without messing with data.zip.

I know that this is a LOT of information to dump on you at once, but we have to start somewhere... The more and more you mess with this stuff, the more sense it will make. I've been working with iGo GPS applications for over 15 years off and on - just to give you some idea of how involved this stuff can be. We are just barely scratching the surface here!

Next up... Changing the GPS TTS phrases (the "you're speeding" message and the TTS voice test sound message).

Don't hesitate to ask questions and experiment! Also, for everyone that bought a 1010 kit from me, I do keep backups of your GPS SD card - so if you mess something up and can't get it back to where you started, rest assured that I have a backup and will help you get things going again! Also, the original class 4 4GB SD GPS card from Rosen is "copy protected". Due to the copy protection, you cannot put the application on a larger SD card. The version of Primo that I use on the kits that I'm selling is not only a newer version, but it's also NOT copy protected, so you can transfer it to whatever SD card you'd like, including 16GB, Class 10 SD cards, which allows it to boot faster. I haven't tried anything bigger than 16GB. With the 16GB card, I can keep both TomTom and HERE maps on the same card (and can switch between them in the application using a "MapChanger" add-on (we'll get to that eventually!).

How to change TTS phrases

It is also possible to customize what Primo says for certain TTS (Text To Speech) phrases, such as the "You're speeding" message and the message that is played when when you change TTS voices from within Primo (the TTS voice test message). These are the main phrases that you'd normally customize, but depending on what TTS add-ons you have installed and what other features you have enabled, there are other phrases that can be customized as well

There are three VERY important things to remember when changing the TTS phrases:

1. The TTS phrases are contained within the TTS voice files. The voice files are located in the "nng\content\voices" folder and are .zip files. You *must* use certain versions of WinRAR to edit the files in these .zip files! This is EXTREMELY important. If you use a newer version of WinRAR or you try to use WinZip, Primo will NOT be able to read the .zip file anymore! I'm not sure exactly what changed with WinRAR or what version it changed in, but I know that WinRAR 4.01 works perfectly.

2. Always make a backup of the TTS voice .zip file before trying to customize it! This way you can always get back to where you started!

3. I highly recommend that you use WordPad to edit the files in the TTS voice .zip files. The files that you are editing will have extensions of ".ini" and ".voice". You'll save yourself a lot of grief if you associate those file types with WordPad from within Windows. This way, when you double-click on the file from within WinRAR, the file will automatically be opened in WordPad.

Like I mentioned above, only a few versions of WinRAR work properly for editing iGo .zip files. I use WinRAR version 4.01, which I'll provide a link for below. As an overview of the process, when editing the TTS voice .zip files, you basically open the .zip file with WinRAR, navigate to the file you wish to edit and double-clink on it. Then you make the desired changes to the file and save the changes. Then WinRar will ask you if you want to update the edited file within the .zip file - you want to answer "Yes" here! Detailed steps are listed below.

There is no need to unzip the voice files in order to edit the TTS phrases contained withing the voice .zip files - just let WinRAR open them up in WordPad automatically and let WinRAR update the .zip file automatically after you edit the files. Trying to unzip the files, edit the files and then re-zip the files will just end up causing issues (and is harder).


Here is the step-by-step procedure:

1. Navigate to the "nng\content\voice" folder on your PC (with the GPS SD card accessible from your PC via a SD card reader).

2. Double-click on the voice file you wish to change. Some voices are easily identified by the filename, some are not. You can always find out which .zip file contains which voice by looking at the "info.ini" file in the zip file (which is also the file you need to modify to change the TTS voice "test phrase").

3. To change the TTS Voice "test phrase" message, double-click on the "info.ini" file in the voice file - this should open the file in WordPad if you associated .ini files to WordPad in Windows like recommended above.

4. The line that you want to change for the TTS voice "test phrase" is the line that begins with "testsound=". Change the phrase specified there to whatever you want Primo to say when you select this TTS voice. Make sure to keep quotes around the phrase.

5. After making your changes, close WordPad. WordPad will then ask you if you want to save the changes - click "Save" (don't worry about the filename it displays).

6. Next, WinRAR will open a window asking you if you want to update the .zip file with the changes you made to the file. Click "Yes" here - this will update the .zip file with your changes.

7. Close WinRAR.

That's it! You just changed the test phrase that Primo will say when you select that particular voice.

If you want to change the "You're speeding message", you do the same thing, except you need to edit the "i8n\dictionary.voice" file (instead of the "info.ini" file. In the "dictionary.voice" file, you want to change the line that starts with "The speed limit is %s!=". Just change the phrase that is in quotes to the phrase that you want Primo to say when you're speeding. The only difference here is that if you want Primo to say the current road speed limit as part of the phrase, use "%s" in the phrase - Primo will automatically substitute that with the current road speed limit. After changing the line, just do the same procedure as above to save the changes and update the voice .zip file.

Next up, we'll go a little further into the TTS phrase customization, showing special "control sequences" that can be inserted into the phrase to have the TTS engine do things like "cough", "sigh", laugh", etc... There are also control sequences to set the volume, pitch, speed, timbre, whisper, pause, reverb, etc. These special control sequences are for the Loquendo TTS engine, so they only work with the Loquendo TTS voices. I'll go into more detail about that in the next post.

This stuff *seems* really complicated, but it's really not. Once you do it a few times, you'll be able to change this stuff without even thinking about it.

Here is a link to WinRAR 4.01: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jvsresu75n...ar401.exe?dl=0

As usual, don't hesitate to ask questions!!

Also, please keep posts in this thread related to the GPS customization tasks. Please post other non-GPS-customization posts over in the "other" Rosen 1010 thread, which is located here:
http://www.impalaforums.com/audio-vi...it-review.html
I just want to keep this thread as clean as possible to make it a little easier to follow. Thank you!

iGo sys.txt configuration file

Ok, next up is the iGo sys.txt configuration file. The iGo sys.txt configuration file is the "heart" of the iGo application. It is a plain text file that supports hundreds, maybe thousands, of settings that can alter almost every aspect of the application. It's one of the reasons that the iGo GPS applications are so popular - they can be customized *WAY* more than any other GPS application. The sys.txt file is located in the main iGo folder and is divided up into "sections" - each section has a name that is enclosed in []'s and can have one or more settings specified. It's a good idea to keep the file in alphabetical order, by section name, just to make things easy to find. While the sys.txt file *can* be huge, you can actually run iGo without any sys.txt file at all as well. Each setting has a default value that is used if not present in sys.txt and you only specify options in sys.txt if you want to override the default value.

There is no formally-documented list of all available settings - NNG (iGo authors) do not publish information about the sys.txt file - it was mainly designed to be used by iGo partners to configure the application for their needs. Below are some of the more common and useful sys.txt entries - I still find new and useful settings quite often though. I'll also include a link to a file that contains a lot of the possible sys.txt settings, but this is NOT by any means a complete list - there are many other options available that are not included in this list. I'll also provide a link to a GUI application that was written to help setup a sys.txt in a more user-friendly way - but again, it does not contain anywhere near all of the options available.

Also, if you want to keep a line in the file, but make it inactive, just put a ";" in front of it. This is useful when testing things and just to document some of the settings.

- Change car size in 2D mode:
[2d]
mincarsize=120
mincarsize_zoomlevel=3000
maxcarsize=150
maxcarsize_zoomlevel=4000
- Write street names on roads instead of in "balloons" in 3D mode:
[3d_config]
disable_roadsign_navigation_mode=1
- Enable experimental features:
[debug]
experimental_features=1
- Disabled the "Entering [townname]" entries in the itinerary mode:
[feature]
itiner_cityentry=0
- Enable extra settings menu:
[interface]
extra_settings=1
- Change road name font size:
[interface]
mapfontscale=170
- Set startup screen:
[interface]
start_state="st_EasyNav" (some options: st_MainMenu, st_EasyNav, st_EasyFindMenu)
- Enable/Disable "Route recalculation" voice when recalculating route:
[interface]
recalc_voice=0
- Change tilt level of 3D view:
[map]
3d_max_tiltlevel=7950
- Set default simulation speed:
[navigation]
sim_speed_factor=1.5

If you want to specify multiple options for a single "section", you only need to specify the section name once. For example:
[interface]
mapfontscale=170
start_state="st_EasyNav"
recalc_voice=0

Here is a link to a list of many sys.txt options, in .txt, .doc and .xls format:
List of many sys.txt options

And here is a link to the SysConfigurator GUI application to help define the sys.txt file and some of it's options:
iGo SysConfigurator application

I hope that someone is at least reading and maybe even using some of this stuff. :-)

Here is an example of the difference between the "disable_roadsign_navigation_mode=0" and =1.

This is what it looks like when disable_roadsign_navigation_mode=0:



And this is what it looks like when disable_roadsign_navigation_mode=1:


Personally, I prefer it being set to "1", but everyone is different...

Not sure if anyone is actually even following this thread or using any of the info, but I'll keep posting it anyway - hopefully it will be of use to someone at some point! :-)

I've made some significant improvements to the TTS functionality recently. I correct some pronunciation issues with the Dave and Susan voices (they were saying "3 road" instead of "3rd", "1" instead of "1st", etc). I've also added "TTS Pro" functionality to the Dave and Susan TTS voices.

I also made it so you can have the system "tell" you about more things - such as when the speed limit increases or when the speed limit decreases, speak your ETA, "tell" you about upcoming toll booths, "tell" you about upcoming "Driver Alerts", etc...

I will package them up and post a link along with some instructions for easy install (very easy to install - basically just unzip the archive onto the GPS SD card).

I have some fresh 08/2016 HERE maps/pois for you guys! Let me get them packaged up and write up some installation instructions and then I will send everyone that bought these from me a link to download the updated maps (I cannot post a public link).

These maps will ONLY work with the version of iGo Primo that I included on the units that I sold - they will not work with the "stock" Rosen systems.

If you use a Rosen GM1010 that you didn't buy from me and are interested in the version of Primo that I put together (as well as these brand new maps), please PM me - I'd be glad to share it.
