  • lil help with iguidance 3

    ok i finally got iguidance and my gps receiver and everything works good but when i open up iguidance in roadrunner i cant switch back without closing out of iguidance causing me to lose the route when i restart. Now i figure this is something easy and i have been searching but i cant seem to figure it out. ive downloaded a few different things for RR that i thought would fix it but they havent. Could someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks a lot!!!

    What skin are you using? You may want to check the .skin file to see if it is closing iguidance or loading the menu screen.

    It should look something like this:
    Code:
    B03,676,1,122,54,"LOAD;MENU.skin",
    Obviously it should hace the proper coordinates and such. You can use rrskineditor to make it easier if you aren't familiar with the skin code.
    Yeah google!

      im using the Alpine skin but when i open up iguidance it covers up the close and exit buttons on the top. when i close iguidance it goes to the menu at the top but nothing else and i have to exit that to get back to the main menu. I'm not too sure what u mean by the .skin file but ill check it out. If you have any other ideas lemme know. Thanks

        What have you downloaded in order to fix the problem.

        I think the problem is that IG is not embedding into RR. How to start IG? What do you press on the skin. What are your GPS settings in RR Config. All of them?

            Check the FAQ section in the RR forum. If should be there.

                  ok i did that first part now im onto this part.....

                  Other GPS Applications (i.e. FreeDrive)

                  -Set the External GPS path to your applications path
                  -Set the GPS Window Name to your GPS Window name

                  If your GPS application needs specific parameters, you should add a " " (including quotes) after the application's path. For Example (for External GPS Path setting):

                  C:\MyGPS\MyGPS.EXE" "Param1 -Param2 Param3

                  You can look at THIS FAQ to find the GPS Windown Name for your GPS application.

                  For example, for FreeDrive you should enter "FreeDrive" (no quotes on the GPS Window Name)


                  I must be a complete idiot because i cannot figure out how to do this. anyone care to break it down for me? where do i put in the window name? all i want to be able to do is switch back and fourth between roadrunner and IG without having to shutdown IG and loosing my route.

                    Setup GPS application to be use with RoadRunner. (iGuidance for example).
                    Look at RR.ini file

                    gpsmode=2
                    gpspath=C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe
                    gpsname=Iguidance


                    With the latest release of RoadRunner, you don't have to pass the "nowarning" parameter to suppress the warning window. Also,you have an option to run iGuidance in native mode or just embedded mode by setting
                    ignative=true/false
                    in rr.ini. The advantage and disadvantage among the 2 is in the "iGuidance native in RoadRunner" thread. Look it up.

                    Now double check the skin file namely (external_gps.skin) to see what command does the Exit/Close/Return button is execute. You can use "CLOSE" command to close the screen without shutdown iG to return back to the main menu. In main menu or where ever, if you execute "GPS" command again, GPS screen will be reload.

                    All RoadRunner setting can be found in readme.txt.
                    All Roadrunner skin command, label, .... are in skin command.txt

                        I was having the same problem as you. I fixed it by changing the gpsname to exactly what matrixpc said to change it to. That would be Iguidance. Now it works correctly. Just follow the laid out instructions and your hsould get it to work.

                          I was having this same problem also. What finally resolved it for me was removing the C01,000,055,800,545 line from my external_gps.skin file. After that, everything worked fine.

                              You need to install XPORT3. In order for Raod Runner and IG to work correctly you need to split the com port. You need one for RR and one for IG.
                              Set XPort3 to you com port where the receiver is plug in then select Enable and split the port to 6 and 7. Use 6 for RR and 7 for IG.
