    i modded the coordinates so as i can still access the media buttons, but have you gotten around to fixing it to work with the aura skin? what happens is a bit after garmin loads, the bottom portion where the media buttons would be go blank.

    perilous, I was wondering, can you clarify a little bit how to customize your script to set the position/size of garmin mobilepc window (and keyboard) please? I'm trying to adapt it to run on my configuration but I'm not sure how to start, can you explait those top bottom top2 bottom2 values please? I'm thinking about using variables to set those coordinates, and get those variable using a defined ratio of the screen resolution in order to make the script work on every resolution
    can you elaborate a little on your scripts? thanks a lot (and, good work I must say)

    Seems to work o.k. for me on the Aura skin at 800x600. Awesome work Perilous, much appreciated. Now if only we could attenuate music when Garmin Speaks

    Perilous and others having success with this utility, what version of GMPC are you running? I updated to the latest version (5.05 released Oct 2nd), and then installed your utility, but I am having problems. It has been very inconsistent, but it seems that the GMPC window does not have a name. When I use your ShowTitleApp utility to get the name for GMPC, the the message box is blank. I downloaded the AutoIT app and took a look at the source code. It seems that when the $CurrentPos array attempts to get assigned, it does not work since the window title is blank (maybe?) so that later in the code when it tries to pull from the array (i.e. $CurrentPos[0]) an error is thrown since the variable is not an array yet. Even if I hard code values where $CurrentPos is used, results are inconsistent. Ultimately, it seems that the GarminCentrafuseHelper.exe is not getting started, or if it does, it closes immediately.

    The really odd thing is that sometimes it does work......although never from within CF. I have gotten it working outisde of CF a few times, but I can't say why.

    I wonder if the 5.05 update from Garmin changed the app so that the window title is blank, or inconsistent?

    Beware the update to GMPC (maybe?). Anyone have any ideas?

    I Just updated garmin to 5.0.50 and works perfectly, no problems at all
    did you check GarminCentrafuseHelperApps.reg ? there are a couple of values to tweak, such as directory, exe and appname.. also remember to execute also keyboard.reg

    I've got an odd problem with my install........ not sure what's going on.

    I've tried the default coordinates and it does something similar.

    If I start GMPC, everything seems to be OK, but if I move the mouse to the top of the screen it disappears and goes back to the CF main screen, then I click to start GMPC again and it pops up where it was almost instantly so I know it's not stopping GMPC but just minimising it......... I don't have to click or do anything other than move the mouse up the screen.

    For instance in the default settings if I get to just about where the Garmin title is you click for the OSK, then go just over that towards the top it just disappers.

    I tried changing the coordinates so that GMPC took the whole of the screen other than the bottom buttons from CF (same coordinates as when OSK is visable) and it displays perfectly and locates where it should, but again when I get the mouse to the same location up the screen, it disappears............ any ideas ?

    lucky for you yesterday I figured out exaclty how this works
    I'm going to comment the GarminCentrafuseHelperApps.reg to make it simple

    =========================

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GARMINCFMONITOR]

    "left"="0"
    "right"="0"
    "top"="0"
    "bottom"="0"

    these 4 valuse define an area of the screen which forces gmpc to go to background, on MOUSEOVER event, not mouse click, only mouse over. In a touchscreen environment it's about the same thing, but with a mouse it's not

    "zone2enable"="1"
    "left2"="728"
    "right2"="800"
    "top2"="520"
    "bottom2"="600"

    it you set zone2enable=1, it enables another area of the screen with exactly the same function as the other. Mouse over it and garmin goes background.

    "DEBUG"="0"
    "TOOLTIPS"="0"

    nothing useful here

    "GarminNavigatorWindowSizePosition"="0,0,800,4 90"

    this defines the area of the screen that gmpc will be using by default in normal use, covering the centrafuse main window and staying foreground until the mouseover event occours

    "GarminNavigatorWindowSizePositionOSK"="0,0,800,45 0"

    this defines the area this defines the area of the screen that gmpc will be using when the osk is active

    "ActivateOSK"="0,0,700,45"

    this defines the area of the screen where you have to CLICK to make the OSK visible. Here you need a click not a mouseover event

    "APPPATH"="c:\\GarminMobilePC\\Que.exe"
    "APPNAME"="Garmin Mobile PC"
    "APPWORKINGDIR"="c:\\GarminMobilePC"

    I think this explains itself well
    ================

    As you can see I defined the first mouseover zone to ZERO to avoid the mouseover on the top of the window, I also defined zone2 with the coordinates of the CF EXIT button on the lower right corner of the screen, and in CF configuration I forced the event on click of this button to NONE. I also customized the ActivateOSK area expanding it on the top border of the screen avoiding the top righe angle; doing this allows me to close and check satellite coverng without mess with the OSK
    I hope I explained it well, if you have problems just let me know

    I think I came to an end in my quest for a good gmpc usability
    using Perilout script in combination with Zero Weight KB I achieved optimal usability
    - I run zwkb each time windows starts with this configuration

    "zwkb.exe quiet NoTapBox NoBumpBox largespacebar size=800x600x125% foreground=28 background=39 TypingTransparency=15"

    - I wrote a simple script which sends a RSHIFT event, which triggers zwkd and makes it appear on the screen.
    - Named it PerilousOSK.exe and placed in the Garmin Helper Apps V1 folder, renaming the original file from Perilous.

    Now when I start cf and then gmpc, it stays on top at near-fullscreen size, and when I click on the top bar zwkb appears and lets me control gmpc fine. No window resizing, no small keyboard appearing, no more messing up with frontend and so on
    simply great
    hope it helps

    Good to hear that it is working with 5.0.50. I did modify the reg files correctly. I will keep working on it! Thanks.
