      Hi CdR

      Great looking skin! Just a couple of things though. Sorry if I'm being dim.

      Is it possible to pan round the map without the menu popping up?
      Can the address bar be slimmed down so it does not partialy obscure the minus and height buttons?

      Cheers

        Hi, depending which skin you use.. depends if it uses the 'touchmenu' or not. To 'pan' round as you say, just swap to the other skin.. tap for the menu, then next , settings , skin then swap to the default skin. :-)

        As for the menu buttons being cut of.. yep thats my afault. I will update the file today which will fix this .

        Download 'this' and unzip it and overwrite the all folder which is at
        C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator\Common\Interface\Visu al

        that will fix the zoom bar problem.


        Cheers

          Can it be embedded into FrodoPlayer ? How ? There's a launcher for MapMonkey. I think something similiar would be needed for FreeDrive also.

            I just made you a wrapper.

            This is how it works.
            Take these files, put them in your freedrive directory.
            Verify in FDWrapper.ini that the path to FreeDrive.exe is correct.

            In the FrodoPlayer directory, open FrodoPlayer.ini.
            At the bottom under [GPSDEFAULTPATHS],
            change the DEST3 line to equal:

            DEST3=C:\Program Files\FreeDrive\FDWrapper.exe
            (or wherever it is)

            Then in FrodoPlayer settings 2, choose the Ninja Monkey option.
            Make sure "Use External GPS Application" is NOT checked.

            You're good to go.

            Frodo

                Just a quick question. It had been mentioned earlier that there might be a birds eye view option in this version. Any idea how long this may be?

                  Ok, I tried it. Hopefully I didn't to anyhing wrong. However, it doesn't work correctly.

                  I setup the INIs as you described (if I didn't forget something) and verified the paths multiple times.

                  When I doubleclick the FDWrapper.exe a window opens and FreeDrive appears in it. So this is working fine.

                  However, when I want to start from within FrodoPlayer it doesn't work. I click on the GPS-Button, the HIDE-bar at the top appears and the rest of the screen stays black.

                  FreeDrive and the Wrapper are located in "C:\Programme\Other\FreeDrive"

                  I chose "Destinator 3 (Ninja Monkey)" and verified that "Use External GPS Application" is unchecked

                  Wrapper INI:
                  Code:
                  [MAIN]
                  FDPath=C:\Programme\Other\FreeDrive\FreeDrive.exe
                  FrodoPlayer INI:
                  Code:
                  [GPSDEFAULTPATHS]
                  DEST3=C:\Programme\Other\FreeDrive\FDWrapper.exe

                    Wait a while. It seems to take several seconds here.

                      Ok, I waited quite some time. In fact I checked back if it loaded after I took a shower .

                      Still nothing. I know that it takes a moment when I directly start FDWrapper.exe. But in FrodoPlayer nothing appears. I'm testing on my Desktop PC. But the MapMonkey-Frontend embeds fine with its launcher so I think my system is running correctly.

                      Here a screenshot. I made the taskbar appear by pressing the Windows-Key (of course the Windows bar is visible on my desktop PC)
