Yes, the static menu does seem easy to acheive as David said, don't use the global tags, but the tags for the buttons which are on the main screen... Shouldn't be too hard.
Oh, and I forgot to ask before, are you keeping Nav buttons on the left for the GPS screen to keep vertical height as big as possible... I hope so
One more thing - Get a move on We all NEED this skin
Funny isn't it how skins can make people flit between front ends, well the skins and the fact that most of CF's configuration takes place from within skinned menus and not in crappy ini files... Thats whats letting RR down at the mo IMO. Having to tweak everything constantly to make it work
So for now, Im a CF man. But CF and Freedrive won't coexist properly on my system and CF's Dest plugin is missing quite a lot of the functions found in FD...
Its never easy is it?
