  • ride runner questions

    I setup my ride runner system this week end.
    my question is

    1) I am running iguidance 3.0 and when i goto gps screen it goes full screen and i do not see the ride runner screen around it. what changes do i need to make to make this work?

    and

    2) when i play video it has a major blue tint to it. I have tried to use the gamma control panel
    and make adjustments in vlc player to no avail any ideas on how to correct this?

    3) can I have multiple webcam and select between them?

        WHAT ARE your gps nav settings...
        assuming you use rrconfig

        gps mode = external, ig native checked, GPS path is set to ig's exe
        and GPS window name is iGuidance

        rr.ini:
        gpsmode=2
        gpspath=C:\Program Files (x86)\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidanceUMPC.exe
        gpsname=iGuidance

        optional ig native stuff:
        [IG Native]
        ignative=true
        igautosw=true
        gpsonvoice=true
        pauseonvoice=false
        lastscreenswitchtime=0
        -Thanks

          but i do not believe i put in the window name in rrconfig

          I will check when i get ready to leave work to day

            iGuidance

            that took car of my iGuidance problem

            thanks a bunch for the help

            now if I could just get the people to stop looking like avatars when I play video

            and while I am at it

            What webcam do you find works best with road runner
            (the one I am using does not work well in day or night driving but works wonderfully at dusk)

            Thanks

                Blue Tinted Video

                it make no difference what video player I use
                I get the blue tint inside of road runner but I do not get it outside of road runner

                I like vlc player as it supports more video codecs and on a 733 mhz system does not drag the video

                I have looked at taking the background screen out (it is the default blue smoke) but it had no effect on playback

                  i cant tell you what it is then...

                  use carwings
                  use built in video
                  use A DIFFERENT video!!!

                  vlc is all software based codecs, so if your mb has hw acceleration, not a good choice
