        quick question thought: How do I turn off right side slider so it does not appear on screen at all as seen on taster3.jpg picture?
        And yeah, expect some skin from me

        BTW I am unable to close FreeDrive from keyboard...

          Hi m8, the slider doesnt show when in 3d mode :-) only in 2d. I understand what you mean when you say you cant close it via keyboard.. I will add some keystrokes to the next version :-)

            Sorry for beeing unclear.. its just pressing Alt+F4 closes SDK within Freedrive, but then you can only kill it from Task manager. It does not respond to another Alt+F4 nor I can close it from task bar using mouse (no context menu appears). It could be great to have ability to completelly close by single keystroke... you know, i am tochsreen-less

            Anyway, thanx for your great work and enjoy your weekend!

              ahh.. so you are killing via F4, yep thats the SDK's crappie way it runs, if you close the app with the exit from the menu it shuts down the SDK correctly. I will look into subclassing itself and check for the destory command.. if it gets it, it will close the SDK down before itself. Thanks for the info, I would of thought this might be a problem with other apps (frontends) that do this.

                    Will be in touch very soon to go over some things we have planned to see if you may be able to help

                    Glad you like the site, seems to be the general feeling from the whole community which is fantastic! It should evolve again this weekend.

                      Think I may have found a 'bug' when entering an address:-

                      Screen shot attached, all I did was click address on the menu:

                        yeah I forgot to reset the last id value before I packed it up for the installer.. go into settings.ini for FreeDrive and change lastcityid= (remove the number) that should sort it out. :-)

                        Let me know if this fixs it. Will remember to reset my settings.ini next time

                        The reason this happened, is that its trying to find city 24106 in the list of your citys. If your using a different map to me that doesnt contain this many citys it errors..

                        CdR

                        p.s btw thats the pre-release version your using :-) theres a few fix's in the released one ;-) like destinator 3 not appearing on the keyboard

                        ok.. update ok just added aline of code to stop this error :-) uploaded new installer but its still called the same :-)

                          hello, just a little ting, when I freedrive starts up, for a second or 2 "Label 2" is displayed on the bottom bar.

                          also, is there any way to remove this bar all togeather? since current location is already displayed at the top?

                          ... very impressive tho... like the layout, and the fact its touchscreen friendly!

                          mick.

                            also... is there any way we can have an option to search for addresses via
                            streets then city?

                              The bottom bar shows current position ,house number, it replaces the bar on d3 that houses sat's info,etc thats hard to read because of small text. The top bar shows only when in routing mode. The reason this is left in, is when using some of D3's dialog boxs it uses the whole of D3s window.. and if I loose the addressbar at the bottom, you would find the dialog box extend over the freedrives window. This also causes other complications when trying to embed the app, as it thinks the window is bigger than it is. duel to the D3 dialog box overhanging the form) As for streets / city. I have already included the code but havent enabled it yet, due to the time it takes to compile the list (over 40 sec's) so it just looks like the app has frozen. I will be looking at this again in the next week to see if I can speed this process up.. under 5 sec's would be fine I think. I will remove the 'label 2' text so nothing appears on start up :-)
