Custom icons and graphics on display in UTCOMP-PRO

Postby ArT » Fri Jun 19, 2015 5:43 pm

UTCOMP-PRO has hidden features - one of them is possibility to reprogram icons and graphics in FLASH memory. Default icons can be found at /bmp/ico directory in installation folder so you can check which icons can be swapped.

In order to swap icons in UTCOMP-PRO do following steps:

1. Connect UTCOMP-PRO and run UTCOMP app
2. Switch to "Settings" tab
3. Click "CTRL + ALT + H" buttons. "HARDWARE" tab will be displayed in settings.
4. Enter "#FLASH" authorisation code.
5. Advanced options will be displayed.

Each graphic and icon has own address in FLASH memory which starts "0x..."
In bottom window ("Graphics addresses in FLASH memory") you can find all address codes for all graphics .
Few examples below.



Battery icon (32x16 pix) can be found at address 0x5000:

Code: Select all

FLASH_ADDR_ICO_32x16_ACCU         0x5000


Outside temperature icon (32x16pix, cloud) can be found at address 0x5500:

Code: Select all

FLASH_ADDR_ICO_32x16_CLOUD         0x5500


Velocity icon (32x32pix, units km/h) can be found at address 0x8000:

Code: Select all

FLASH_ADDR_ICO_32x32_KMH         0x8000


... etc.

In order to upload your custom graphic you should:

1. Load bitmap icon. It's important to load icon which exacly the same resolution as icon to be replaced.
2. Enter icon address in FLASH memory (when you enter incorrect address you will overwrite different icon!)
3. Click "UPLOAD(bmp)" button.

In this way you can prepare your own custom icon set, download it as single file and share to others. Just click "Download FLASH (bin image)" and next click save icon to save file on your computer. Below you can find default flash file with all oryginal graphics - just in case if you overwrite default icons and want to restore it:

I've checked it and you are right. There is bug in firmware. Oil pressure icon does not display in Area 1,2,3,4 - only in 5 and 6.
Thank you for finding this bug - we will fix it in next update.

edit. it's already fixed in v3.4

You can't :( Size is hard coded in flash so you need to replace it also with 16x16
