    Music should stay playing while you use FD. I use FD with RR and mine keeps playing. perhaps theres a setting i set that you didnt in the config. I would check there.

      Just go in the audio player, choose whatever you want to play, then when you go into FreeDrive it should stay playing.. depending on the skin you should be able to even control the music from there.. that is of course, assuming you've set the EXternal GPS to FreeDrive along with the GPS Window name.

        Ill have to play about with the settings in RR and FD tonight to get it working.

        Can I switch between the screens to change the music as i want too or is it controlled from FD??

        Thanks so far guys.

          you can flick screens, if your playing mp3's then on the FD screen you will still here the mp3. same with radio. You can if you wish also display FD's info on the mp3 audio page by using the sdk. I will be releasing some stuff soon I hope that will show you just what i mean.

          cheers

            Cheers guys.. got it working how I want it i think.

            So I can just see whats playing in the FD screen?

            Any future plans to add volume control, next track, previous track etc etc? Would be quite handy to not have to come out of FD to access even just the volume controls.

            Works pretty good too if i say so!!

            If found that the postal codes arnt accurate are they? Adding my folks address takes me to a diff location about a mile away!!

            Added my mates postcode which is like 2 miles from me, and it routed me 118 miles away!! hahah....

            Any ideas whats going on here?

              Gotta find the right skin that includes controls for the gps screen. I'm trying to use the one call CLEAN but it pushes the GPS window up and cuts part of it off.
