  • Navigon NCK 4 in RR

    Hi guys,

    Very nice frontend

    Is there any way to use the external GPS soft Navigon 4 NCK, because when I try setting it up in RR it doesn't load and it would be nice to have it in RR because of the OSK which I need to input the address.

    Here is my rr.ini extract:
    showid3browse=false
    gpsmode=2
    gpsport=3
    mapmonkeypath=C:\Program Files\NAVIGON GmbH\NCK 4.0 Notebook\NCK.exe
    gpspath=C:\Program Files\NAVIGON GmbH\NCK 4.0 Notebook\NCK.exe
    gpsname=NAVIGON GmbH
    exitmode=0
    showicons=true
    showextensions=true
    titlesafter=-
    listfollowssong=true

    I tried different methods but none will load the navi soft

    Please help

    Read the how to embed FAQ.. follow the process to verify if the window title is correct.. you may be runnint the application on the background and not seeing it.. you should also set gpsport=0 during your tests, so that RR doesn't prevent your GPS app from using it. if it still doesn't load, make a .bat file like:

    C:\NCK.bat

    with this inside:

    @echo off
    c:
    cd \Program Files\NAVIGON GmbH\NCK 4.0 Notebook\
    NCK.EXE

    Then set the gpspath to:

    gpspath=c:\nck.bat

      Thanks mate , gonna check the FAQ asap. I did but probably on the wrong keywords

      When I get the specs for the ini file I'll post them here for future reference.

      I'm of to and with some luck I'll be when it works.

        Well I tried with Winspector but the problem is that navigon starts in full screen mode and doesn't have a titlebar

        Also tried it with the bat file but no joy.

        This is what I can get from the window list and properties in Winspector.
        ------
        Properties for window 0x00190154

        exitmode=0
        showicons=true
        showextensions=true
        =====

        Am I forgetting something? I checked the taskmanager after clicking GPS in rr but no mention of NCK in there, the bat file works ok by itself.

        Thanks

          U won't get NCK embedded in RR because it has no static border...

          The only thing u can try is to add the following code to the top of your nck.ini:

          [Dimension]
          Width=800
          Height=550
          OffsetX=0
          OffsetY=0

          That will start NCK in 800x550 in the top left corner. U can optimise these values for your own belongings
          2+2=Quattro

            you should listen to dbassix.. but just for your information, when a class name is all numbers like you posted, normally those numbers CHANGE from time to time everytime you run the application.. so you may want to look for that and see which numbers change and don't include that in the setting..

              I've been playing around with the class names but still no luck

              Even been trying integrate explorer and calc just to see rr would load it, but didn't work. Can someone see what I did wrong or give me an example to load a standard windows app in the gps window, so I can see the result in rr gps window?

              Here is my extract:

              gpsmode=2
              gpsport=0
              mapmonkeypath=
              gpspath=C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe
              gpsname=!ExploreWClass
              exitmode=0
              showicons=true
              showextensions=true
              titlesafter=-

              Cheers

                I'll be damned, just tried with the BM skin and it loads Navigon perfectly Guess Simplistique is a bit buggy not rr

                  Forget it if fixed the window problem but how can I keep the audio control buttons in the windows

                    as you set follow string inside your nck.ini

                    [Dimension]
                    Width=800
                    Height=525
                    OffsetX=0
                    OffsetY=0

                    your nck application is showing in a box like 800x525, starting on position 0,0

                      In the butom of your picture you see the control butons which skin are your using. I've already fixed the windows problem but I think you are useing a differend skin

                            You need to set a Clipping area the same size of you application area.
                            SOmething like this.
                            /, A, x, y, w, h, color;RGB
                            A,209,92,581,396,0

                            /, C, x, y, w, h
