    This might be your lucky day!

    I was planning on releasing a tool that would allow you to use Mobile PC under CF, so I'm gonna put it here. It might need some extra testing but I think it does what it's supposed to do. Here's how to use it:
    1. Unzip into a folder you like, no install required.
    2. Edit the ini file with Notepad like this:
    [GARMIN]
    Main Garmin Window=QUE_SUBAPP_WND_CLASS => leave this intact
    Sub Garmin Window=CDP_FIELD_WND => leave this intact
    Window top=60 => should be ok for CF running 800x600
    Window left=0 => should be ok for CF running 800x600
    Window height=535 => should be ok for CF running 800x600
    Window width=800 => should be ok for CF running 800x600
    Path=D:\Garmin\GarminMobilePC => path to Que.exe on your system, MUST BE ALTERED WHEN GMPC IS NOT INSTALLED ON D:\GARMIN\GARMINMOBILEPC !!!
    Start command=Que.exe => leave this intact
    Window search update=10 => change this to a higher value if CPU usage for cloak.exe is to high
    Remove welcome screen=1 => Removes the warning screen, change to 0 if you want to click the 'I Agree' button each time it starts.
    3. In CF install Cloak.exe as an external application with following info (or see screenshot):
    - Application name: as you like
    - Application location: browse to cloak.exe in unzip folder NOT QUE.EXE in Garmin folder!!!
    - Application parameters: empty
    - Window name: Garmin cloak app
    - Fullscreen button on!

    Thats it.

    What does it do?
    When you start cloak.exe after changing the ini file GMPC will be started in a window with width and height adjusted as in the ini file and you will see a small red button in the top left corner of GMPC. The warning screen automatically disappears (see ini file settings). When you click on that red button an onscreen, transparent keyboard appears that sends the typed keys to the Garmin window (make sure that you place the cursor in the edit box if it's not already there). When you click the 'enter' button or on the little red button again the keyboard disappears and you can continue working in GMPC. Also when you drag the Garmin window the red button will remain in the Garmin window's upper left corner, you'll see that it 'follows' the Garmin window.

    Just 1 small detail, as long as it's opened it will try to stay in the foreground, it will prevent other applications to come in front.

    Success!

    The minimum resolution for GMPC is 800x450, give it a try and share your findings. Change the window height to 450 in the ini file and see what happens.

    Ok all Centrafuse, Garmin Mobile Pc users we should give a great thanks to putput for putting this plugin together so we can use this super nav sofware with centrafuse. It is by far the best nav software out there. ok so back to the plugin I have it working on my system with one bug i dont get the red circle on my screen to use the transparent osk but that is an easy fix. I also made the following changes so that I could have the bottom audio controls in Centrafuse. I made the following changes to the .ini file

    window top=48
    window left=0
    window height=470
    window width=800

    these changes made the bottom bar become visable and usable. once again i must give Putput big props for this plugin for us Garmin Mobile pc users.

    Well if you havn't been following the centrafuse thread users of centrafuse have not been able to sucessfully embed garmin as a external app maybe with centrafuse 2.0 but not for ver. 1 hence this application that Putput has developed. For me upgrading to centrafuse 2.0 wasn't an option the load time was horrible for my system, took up alot of resources. ver. 1 works better for me thats why I and so many others needed this.
