    and on the nav screen.. where you search for place names.. can we add a search radius to that... and pick whether we want to search close to current location or close to destination...
    Thank you for the compliments!

    I will look into the dual volume thing. I haven't thought much about it.

    Adding search from current radius is a great idea, and one I hadn't thought of. The only version of this I have installed in a vehicle at the moment is in my motorhome so that's not something I use it for, but of course it makes complete sense I will look into it.

    As for using AutoTouch it should work with any NMEA compliant GPS, I've used it with a Garmin ETrex, a Delulo, and with the Pharos USB unit which seems to work really really well.

    StrohJ you should take a look at the skinning stuff, and see what you think there. Zorro was very impressed with how easy it was to create his skin, and he did an awesome job with it.

    Stuff

    Grem

    Sorted screen issue...funny but i was running my touchscreen through 2nd output on my vid card at 800x600 and the screen did that strange thing, mackled my car pc together and ran it on that and it works fine.

    Sorry to bother you with that one!

    Errr...regarding the new install...i have downloaded it twice now and uninstalled and reinstalled many times with reboots inbetween and the Zorro skin does not appear in the directory or anywhere else as a matter of fact could you check you uploaded the correct file?

    Cheers

    Chilli Pepper, I'm sorry for your trobules. Just checking my downloads, and I just downloaded and installed and the zorro skin is indeed there. Is anyone else also seeing this problem I wonder if an intermediate system is cacheing the file?

    Can you check that once you download that your date is correct? Maybe the file is getting stuck in your cache because the name is the same?

    What is the size of the file downloaned in the explorer mine shows 13,709KB

    thanks!

    Okay, can you possibly try downloading it to another machine? I'm checking on the actual web server at this point and it's showing the file size I have listed, so I've got to think something in between is cacheing the file.

    Zorro's Skin up seperately

    on the web site http:\\www.sarinarts.com\autotouch.htm I've now posted Zorro's skin file seperately for those of you who would like it. Simply unzip it into the program files\autotouch directory and it should appear!

    Enjoy!

    Great program Gremlin...

    I'll be using this when i finish version2 of my car pc...

    thanks for the hard work...

    are you going to be adding anything else to this??

    oh one thing i notced while i was playing with this on my desktop.... when in the navigation screen and you go to map to a destination... it almost seems like AutoTouch skips a beat because I see real quick it lists some of the turns and then gos to blank screen for a sec and then pops back in with the giant lettering for navigation... thoughts??

    thanks again

    That flicker is map-point computing the new route, Apart from not showing the window I can't make ths stop happening, nature of the beast.

    Glad you like it

    thats fine... its not a big deal just wasnt sure if it was just a fluke on my machine or was the beast's nature...


    Keep up the good work.. hopefully i'll get off my a$$ and make a skin for it to match my car a little better..

    I have played around with the skinning a little bit now.. but unfortunately.. I can only get the volume controls to work on the main page and not on any of the sub pages (music, navigation, etc)

    I am pretty sure its not skin related cos i used the same controls as the main page in my XML file for the rest of the pages...

    I am currently working on a chevy ckin.. similar to the brished metal ones for mediacar.. I will post it as soon as I have it done...
