Abstract

This modification of MioPocket Mini 4.0 ( http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=137719 ) decreases noticeably usage of RAM and/or Video-RAM. Not dozens of icons have to be loaded at once and kept in RAM and/or Video-RAM, but only a handfull per folder-page. "MioPocket Mini 4.0 FV" only consumes ~ 250KB RAM (plus RAM used by the applications launched from within "MioPocket Mini 4.0 FV"). "MioPocket Mini 4.0 FV" only adds the following functions: Music Play, Video Play, Game, Flash, Alarm, Notepad, Dictionary, Scheduler, Calculator, Photo Album, E-book, Volume Setting, Date & Time, etc. Note that "MioPocket Mini 4.0 FV" does not provide a so-called dual zone functionality (listening to the radio/cd while GPS works). If such feature is wanted/needed, one must extend the SatNav's navigation software by an extra button by him/herself. "MioPocket Mini 4.0 FV" is Windows Embedded CE 6.0 ready. Also it's prepared to run well in Microsoft Device Emulator.

Skins

Two skins are available: Metro Style and iPhone Style

A: Metro Style (It’s modern, clean, light and open design with no shadows, glows or gradients)
