  • Ride Runner and a working european navigation application

    I'm new to the forum and I'm looking for some advice, I'm currently setting up my carpc and I'm having trouble with finding a european navigation program which will work with ride runner. So far I've tried Mappoint 2010 and 2011 and neither work, currently downloading 2009 from my MSDN account to try that.

    Are there any other navigation programs that work with ride runner for the euro market? My current skin is DFX5.1.1

    I have seached the forum, but there is a lot of outdated information and this appears to be the last post I could find about mappoint but author never replied to the question from mitchjs. http://www.mp3car.com/rr-plugins/149...map-point.html

    Thanks for any help.

    i use Sygic (http://www.sygic.com/en/business:buy-now) and it works like a charm... thou i would recommend you get files from them so that its locked to the mac of the wifi card or wired lan... in that way your activation code can be reused on same pc.

    send me a pm if you need those files and the steps to change out the right files
    Blessed are the "cracked" for it is they who let in the light.

        Tried Mappoint 2009 and still no luck I guess the plugin is snapped or I'm missing a dependency, also gone back to the default skin supplied with the ride runner installation and get the same results as DFX5.1.1




        Here is me Navigation config.


        I've gone through the rr log file and the and it's loading the plugin

        and I get the following when trying to start mappoint

        ONBTNPRESS
        -
        PLAYSOUND;C:\Users\Audi\Documents\RideRunner\Skins \DFX5\ButtonPress.wav
        -
        LOAD;Mappoint_GPS.skin;Mappoint;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Mappoint\Mappoint.exe;Mappoint
        -
        SkinSpeak_Finished
        -
        SETVAR;PlayStatus;NULL
        -
        SAVETOSKIN;PlayStatus;NULL

          there is no plugin for rrconfig for mappoint

          but my mp2011 runs...

          all i did was set nav to mappoint... NO other changes, no rr.ini edits, nothing
          course testing with carwings, since that has the gui required for mappoint

            also, we are sure mp 2010 works too, id think mp 2009 would work too, as long as it has the required activex support

                  hmm, odd... i dont have mp2009 to try... only mp2010 & 2011

                  i assume the application runs? on its own...

                  also we use thier activex: MAPPOINTCONTROL.OCX you can see if thats on your pc, mines in the program files/microsoft mappoint 2011

                      i had garmin before but they have stopped supporting it and there was only one way to get updated maps... buy new license

                        That's not correct (about maps)... Just downloaded 2012 european map set (and i'm using 2011 european map set)

                          Will check for "MAPPOINTCONTROL.OCX" this evening when I get back from work, I must be missing something off my system if you have it all working. I've done two clean installs ofwindows 7 home premium x86 SP1 , and tried 3 versions of mappoint which all give the same result. I take it I don't need any other office apps installed to make this work?

                          Standalone mappoint runs fine and I've test out the GPS receiver and it finds 9 satellites and pin points my location fine (not tested on the move)

                          I'll spend a little more time trying to get mappoint working, as I would like to see a GPS only device working in the car, as I'm used to the Audi RNS-E/MMI systems that intergrate with the CAN-BUS system, for speed & sterring angle etc. This is the first time I've gone down the custom ICE solution, I could have just retroffited the Audi nav system but fancied a change and challenge in get a CarPC working.

                              With help from mitch I finaly got mappoint 2011 to work, I think the fault could have been down to me installing the plugin before mappoint and how the mappointcontrol.ocx control was registered. Also in the rr.ini under extras i had mappointmap=1 when from what I understand mappointmap=2 if your running the euro version which I found from an old post back in 2005 http://www.mp3car.com/road-runner/47...embedding.html

                              One more item off the todo/fix list.
