    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!

    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 :-)

    Not sure if this is a problem with RR or with FD, but when using FD as an external embedded GPS app in RR, it embeds fine, but when you click any where on the map, the menu screen comes up 'behind' the map (out of focus).

    Also, since clicking on the map in FD brings up the menu, I'm guessing that you can no longer click and drag the map to look at other areas around your currently location?

    I will have a look at the focus when embedding. You can if you dont like the touchmenu option, just use a differnent skin with that disabled, just swap skins, theres one called 'default' that has a menu button, this then enables you to drag the map around :-) To change the skin, start FD up, goto menu, next, settings, skin there you can set the skin, it should autoload your new skin without restarting.

    I added the touchmenu option as I found whilst in the car I never use the drag map option, but thought that some peeps might, as I do when in the house. So added a simple line to the skin that enables / disables it.

    Its upto you the if you use it or not, thanks for letting me know about the focus, I will have a play early next week. Please let me know if you find anything else.

    As far as I know a new release is coming. You problably should talk to Frodo if there are changes which affect embedding.
