The iGO Amigo, a handheld global-positioning system, offers a number of different skins to give the operating system a new look. If you find yourself dissatisfied with the skin selection, you can download skins from websites that focus on GPS skins. These downloads are submitted by GPS users and skin designers rather than official sources. Use caution when selecting a skin to download to avoid accidentally download a virus or malware that harms your computer.
