    Embedding FreeDrive

    Hi m8. just started trying my app in diff frontends, think this is a common problem with d3 based frontends, it embeds fine, but just beeps when I tap on the map, which should bring my menu up. Anything I need to do to get this working I can code in ?



    o.. btw the speed font can be changed in the skin.ini so no probs there (just noticed it on preview)

    cheers

    The problem is the D3 map doesn't like being embedded into a Windows Layered Window, which is what I use. So currently there is no solution in place.

    I think NM created a wrapper that made his work...

    Did this ever get resolved or is my computer broke. I'm trying to use Freedrive embedded in Centrafuse and I can't get the map to move. I have 5 satellites locked and am getting a long lag from the speedo but the map doesn't update. I have to close it, open D3, set my route, close D3, open Freedrive and the map upates the location upon opening but won't move. After 5-10 minutes Freedrive crashes.

    Freedrive as a stand alone works great except for the routing crash. I need more than just a pretty moving map.

    HELP!!! Centrafuse with Freedrive is the best. I just need to get them working together.

    It works ok on my system.
    I have the map embedded and the map is moving and i can see the speed.
    The only problem now is that the skin is not made to be resized to the smale size of the embedded window.

    I am currently experiencing the same problem. Has anyone found a way to solve this. FreeDrive itself works fine just it seems that CF does not update the window or something. When I for example change views it lcks to my current position again, but does not move the map

    this is a known problem in 1.2.... It has to do with my use of layered windows... It shouldn't be a problem anymore in 1.3...

    OK. And I guess you would ahve told me if there existed a workaround for it, right?

    Is Frodo's wrapper for FreeDrive worth a shot or pretty muc useless for this kinda problem?

    Anyway to make FD run from one of the main buttons on left of CF1.4b

    I wanna have FD instead of mixer as I've also got access to mixer through Apps Menu.
