Igo 8 an Igo Primo files and folders structure – a “how to” tutorial


Using a GPS device with Igo 8 an Igo Primo software it’s easy. But if you want to update maps, POI’s and other file can be tricky if you don’t know exactly where to put all the files .

So the file structure is :

ui_android – for android
ux – for android

The most important remains the content folder, which has remained largely unchanged since the first version of iGo.

\ Content \ building:
* .3DL – 3D renderings of some important buildings
* .3DC – Contours of the items on the map
* _petrol.3DL – 3D Images of some petrol stations

!! The files are optional, I recommend not to use 3DL files on devices with less memory or small screen.

\ Content \ cars:
– With skins files “car / pedestrian”.
Default is Arrow.

\ Content \ dem:
* .DEM – Contains information about altitude / contours that allow a 3D rendering of the route.

!!! These are optional and consume more memory.

\ Content \ global_cfg
– File contains global_cfg.zip with general information about countries.
– It is best to keep this file updated to the latest version

\ Content \ histspeed
* .HSP – Files that CONTAIN historical information about traffic on certain routes in certain period

\ Content \ lang
– Zip files contain language interface program (eg Lang_Russian.zip)

\ Content \ map
It’s probably the most important folder that contains maps and other files

* .HNR – Files containing pre calculated route (Fast, Short, Economical and Easy), to be used for, it is necessary that all maps (FBL) to be present!
