New Carplay skin update, Favorite Stations buttons, Personal language strings, Font type Changer etc..

Here are  some good news today!!
I uploaded a new skinpack in the Carplay folder only for now but soon it will be available for other skins too and for all the firmwares.
Let's see in detail  what's new in this package:
SKINMANAGER NEW SECTION AND FUNCTIONS


As you can see now skinmanager can handle five skins switching, it has a new section called "CUSTOMIZATIONS" where you have some standard skintool functions and some new ones, let's see them:

- Install Personal Language.
Will let you browse throught your sdcard for a string_yourlanguage.xml
and with it replace the english one.
After selecting the string file if exist also a font file associated to the new string, e.g.:

string_swedish.xml
font_swedish_5.xml

it will be replaced the string in all skins and the font file in the skin number specified, in this case skin5 only.
If you have not a font file, you can easily change font with another skinmanager function:

- Change Font Type
 It will let you choose between the fonts available in wince and change the type in the skin in use or in all installed skins

- Patch/Unpatch software.
All the custom languages can be installed only if you patch the system, so even if you try to change the Language before patching you'll be prompted to do it.
The patch will also provide you a fix for audio player tags and the biggest new feature of the moment:

STATIONS BUTTONS IN RADIO SCREEN

For this great  feature and the patches we all have to thanks a russian friend ALEX O. With his great skill and knowledge he is giving us everyday something new to play with.
After patching the system you'll find 6 new buttons on bottom of the radio screen, labeled ST1, ST2, ...ST6. Running the Radio Editor you can edit the stations list, rename the stations and reassign the buttons:


Soon there will be the same for skin2, skin3 and skin4:



In carplay skin I started modifying the Ipod Section but as i don't have an ipod  I cannot test it, I need you reports guys.
I changed the audio player tags for a better showing of artist and song title and I modified a bit the BT music section to better show music info tags too.

That's it for now, I got go back finish my other skinpacks! WORK! WORK! WORK!  :D

  1. Hi KoTiX, first of all congratulation for your skins, they are awesome !!
    Will all these features be available for firmware 1.7.9 ? Radio stations on main screen is working, but there is a bug with audio player when you switch to next song by hand, tags are not recognized.

      I mean that you don't need it.
      Just go in the carplay folder and you'll find the update there. ;)

    1. Select the station to edit, press the pencil icon, move down the keyboard sliding it,
      Insert button number, save.
      It's easy, just move away the keyboard.

  10. Dear Kotix, where i can find instructions about 'Change Buttons Functions' i can't understand the buttons positions. For telephone function there no way to see SMS message or use the voice to control phone functions?

    1. "Change button function" will enable the choosen button to start the audio player only.
      No way to make telephone functions you have described.
