Suntime v1.7 (Download)

Version française

Functions

Suntime provides an automatic change of day/night screen colors depending on GPS position and time. The change is made only if the GPS reception is OK. The change test is made within a period you define yourself in the configuration file of Suntime.

Suntime is useless on GOx10, which have a light sensor. On those devices, installing Suntime may produce permanent color changes at some period of day.

How can Suntime run correctly on Rider 2 (with v6), One XL, GOx10 and GOx20 (with v7) ?

To run Suntime correctly on Rider 2 (with v6), One XL, GOx10 or GOx20 (with v7), perform the following actions :

  • install Suntime on your Tomtom
  • run it once, the screen is garbaged
  • stop it by clicking in the lower left corner of the screen
  • connect your Tomtom to your PC and edit the file /suntime/config.txt with Wordpad
  • in this file, change the line screenadaptation none in screenadaptation rider2
  • save your mods and re-start your Tomtom
  • run Suntime, the screen is OK

Version 1.7

This version includes the screen rotation feature that fixes the garbaged screen problem on Rider 2 (with v6) and on One XL, GOx10 and GOx20 (with v7).

Configuration

Suntime configuration is performed thru a menu, which appears when you click on Suntime icon in the main menu of your Tomtom.

Color change parameter allows you to choose between a color change right at sunrise/sunset timel (unchecked box) or at dawn/twilight time (checked box).

Language parameter defines the language used for Suntime messages and menu. You may add other languages by adding some language files in the /suntime directory on your Tomtom, with a .lng suffix.

GMT offset defines the value of the GMT offset in the timezone where you're using Suntime. Use + and - buttons to increase or decrease value between -12 and +12. The value may have decimals, which are separated from the entire value by a point, but you must modify it directly in the /suntime/config.txt file.

Period parameter defines the time interval between 2 color change tests. Use the + and - buttons to increase or decrease it by 5 seconds. The minimum value is 10 seconds. The lower value you choose, the more you'll be disturbed by a Tomtom bug that will cancel any input in Tomtom navigation application, when Suntime wakes up.

Display parameter defines Suntime message level, amongst :

  • none : no message displayed
  • normal : one message at startup and one message when stopping
  • full : same as normal + one message each time Suntime wakes up
  • debug : same as full + debug logs in a file called /debug.txt each time Suntime wakes up

The /suntime directory contains a file called /suntime/config.txt which is managed thru the configuration menu. Here is an example :

[Begin parameters]
language english.lng
period 60
gmtoffset 1
twilight yes
verbose normal
screenadaptation none
[End parameters]

If this file is missing, GMT offset is equal to +1, the period is equal to 60 seconds, change happens at sunrise/sunset, the level of messages is set to normal, there is no screen adaptation and the language is english.

First use

  • For an automatic launch of Suntime at Tomtom start-up, create with Notepad or Wordpad a file called cleanup.txt in the root directory of your Tomtom.
  • Put the following line in this file : daemon|suntime/suntime|
  • If this file already exists for an another plugin, add the above line at the end of this file.
  • Setup the value of the GMT offset and change time by updating the /suntime/config.txt file as described above.
  • Re-start your Tomtom, a blinking message Starting Suntime... will be displayed for a few seconds at the end of start-up, if you've chosen a message level different from none.

To test Suntime, change manually the color of screen for the reverse value than desired at the test time. In less than the period you've defined, the screen color should change.

This installation will add at the end of your main menu a Suntime icon.This icon allows you to stop Suntime if it is running or start it if it is not running. When Suntime stops, it issues a flashing message Stopping Suntime... if you've chosen a message level different from none. If you have a customized menu, you'll need to modify it to see the Suntime icon.

Version history

Version 1.6a

This version fixes a bug on GMT offset, that couldn't be a negative value.

Version 1.6

This version allows you to :

  • setup Suntime parameters via a configuration menu
  • translate Suntime messages and menu in any language

Version 1.5a

This version allows you to choose the level of messages displayed by Suntime :

  • none : no message displayed
  • normal : one message at startup and one message when stopping
  • full : same as normal + one message each time Suntime wakes up
  • debug : same as full + debug logs in a file called /debug.txt each time Suntime wakes up

Version 1.5

This version fixes the dead-lock in Suntime when other plugins like Tripmaster, Offroad ou NMEALogger are used.

Version 1.4

This version allows you to stop or start Suntime when you want, although Suntime may still be launched automatically at Tomtom boot.

This version does not include the configuration file. If you're installing Suntime for the first time, you'll need to create the configuration file as described below. If you don't create it, Suntime will work with the default values for each of its parameters. If you're upgrading Suntime, this version will re-use the configuration file already present on your Tomtom.

Version 1.3

This version allows to set a decimal GMT offset, like 9.5 for 9h30.

Version 1.2

This version allows to set up the time gap between two time and coordinates checks. This may be a palliative for the following bug : if Suntime runs when a keyboard caption is currently done, the values already keyed are erased.

Version 1.1

It fixes the problem encountered on GOx00 and allows to choose between a dawn/twilight change or a sunrise/sunset change.
