  • replacing RADIO button with another Application ??

    I don't have a radio card or XM radio on a system and would like to have a button on CFuse open/embed an application called TopoUS ( topographical GPS )
    I know that I can run it along with Destinator / MapMonkey as I have a port splitter for the GPS antenna.

    I looked through all ini/xml files and could not find where to do it..

    If it was staring right at me, I am sorry for being an idiot

    Thanks in advance for any help

    in the CF configuration wizard you can specify an external radio tool and a window name, that's all you need for embed any program, the last step is to modify the skin xml file, remove "RADIO" label and put whatever you like

      actually modify the language file to just change the text from Radio to something else..

          Worked great !!!
          The only issue is when I have the 3D map AND the 2D map displayed ( Topo USA ) side by side, the 3D screen flickers when embedded in CFuse and doesn't do it while it's a standalone.

          Dest3.1 & TopoUSA work at the same time due to com port splitter and having TopoUSA in place of "Radio" button is great since I am using my HU for radio

          Thanks again guys, yet another successfull tweak, now I just gotta get the weather screen to use Port:8080 ( BT cell T-mobile proxy )

                        Just installed Topo USA version 5 ..

                        looks a little better than version 4 and has " car / nightime " colors and some other functions added, like the ability to print.

                        unfortunately the 3D screen still flickers when embedded....

                        maybe I'll just embed Ver 4.0 and keep in 2D mode, and run Ver 5.0 as a standalone with 3D and switch between ala alt-Tab ????
                        The 3D is too cool !!!!
