    Navigator 11 from Mapfactor

    Is there anyway to get the free version of Navigator 11 from Mapfactor to enbed in RR? I selected External Mode in RRConfig and in Application path I put "C:\Program Files\Navigator11\PC_Navigator\PC_Navigator.exe" --atlas='C:\ProgramData\Navigator\11.0\atlas_pcn_fre e.idc' and I put PCNavigator for the Windows Title. But nothing happens when I try to launch it from within RR using Carwing_Dynamic_Lite. Also I am using the latest version of RR. I really like this navigation program plus it's free so I would love to use it within RR if at all possible.

    thanks.

    Into your external_gps.skin try to replace the line A,2,74,797,470, by AX,2,74,797,470,"OPT_NOFOCUS"

    Thank you for your hint, I should have specified I'm using PC Navigator FREE. Anyway, I tried it with both

    GPS||ACTIVATE;!BarneyMainWndCls!Navigator
    and
    GPS||ACTIVATE;!MPFCWindow!Navigator

    It is reacting the same way with both. When I open the navigator screen, everything displays correctly, but as soon as I hit any button outside of the GPS window (like the next audio track button), the GPS window disappears underneath RR and I can't bring it back without Alt-tabbing which won't work in a car environment. In Carwings, I can use the audio buttons without losing the GPS window. I'm not sure what the two skins are doing different. Any help is appreciated, thank you!

The only thing I edited was in the skin.ini file, I replaced....

    MenuExec_19=Load;$GpsScreen$;$GPSNAME$;$GPSPATH$;$ GPSNAME$||ACTIVATE;iGuidance||SENDKEY;{p}{p}
    with
    MenuExec_19=GPS
    and
    MainMenuExec_05=Load;$GpsScreen$;$GPSNAME$;$GPSPAT H$;$GPSNAME$||ACTIVATE;iGuidance||SENDKEY;{p}{p}
    with
    MainMenuExec_05=GPS

    Any helpful hints? Am I at least on the right track? Thanks.
    Can you try:
    Code:
    MainMenuExec_05=GPS||ACTIVATE;!BarneyMainWndCls!Navigator

    I added this option in RRConfig (added different window name as well) and it still will not "force" close PC Navigator. You have to click on the app somewhere to finally get it to close. Any other ideas?

    Thanks

    Use RRConfig !
    General/Embedded Apps Add --> !MPFCWindow!Navigator

    MainMenuExec_32=LOAD;DFX_Updates.skin

    Create a copy before !

    If you hold a button, you can choose a program from a list !
    Thank you for this information, it did help a lot!!

    Since I had screwed around with some of the .ini and not knowing 100% what I was doing, I uninstalled and reinstalled RR and DFX5, and then without changing any more settings, when I clicked the iGuidance button PC Nav did launch. Now just a matter of getting the sizing fixed, and seeing if I run into any other issues.

    THANKS!!

    Also not sure what is missing from MCE compared to a full XP but there may be something that can possibly cause an issue with some plugins or skins.
    It seems to launch fine through Carwings, just trying to find out how to get it to launch, and/or reprogram an existing button (i.e. replacing the iGuidance button) to be renamed and choose the path to launch PC Nav, or if I have to setup this external launch.

    This is all new to me, and my mind is a blur after reading so many threads and posts and pages for the past few days!
