    This is not going to be an option, sorry I'm limited to what the SDK can do, and naming streets in 3d/bird mode isnt one of them :-( lets home SDK 4 might bring it..

    I very much like the looks of your program. Especially the nice and very visible ETA en ETR readings.

    However I also like the feaures MM is offering (the possibilty to add locations on the fly and so.)

    Is there a possibility to combine your skin with MM? If so how can I do this

    And what is the meaning of the numbers in the skin file which define the colors? How do a find the right number for bright red?

    you need to find and load the maps yourself. Use the maps from destinator 3

    yeah I am figuring out here that I need to "find" the maps.
    If I like it I'll buy it, but there's no way I am buying the maps without trying Destinator with the maps I need.

    All right, I did a very short and very first test drive tonight with FreeDrive.
    Having this said, I have to also add this was actually very first time for me to see any GPS in action.
    Sooo... I took my laptop with docking station, hooked on cheap Deluo GPS receiver I have ready for the CarPC, battled with jumping mouse cursor a while, then I have been waiting like 5 minutes untill it locked satellites (man I can tell you there is -8deg. Celsius but it was really hot time for me) got 5 of 11 avail under front windshield - not bad I guess.
    Anyway I have loaded Freedrive, patched, maps... fired it up, set the destination,started the engine,... and I wanna tell you

    I WAS SO INCREDIBLY AMAZED WITH WHOLE THING that I almost totaled my car few times...

    Ohhh my IT IS WORKING PERFECTLY!!!

    Whohooooo

    Two things I have observed anyway: speedo is not working for me somehow showing 65 kpm when I am on red lights and rundabout was announced 3 kms far from it (kinda strange to hear "continue on circle second exit in 3 km" on empty dark road in the middle of nowhere in deep woods

    BTW, working on my skin, I would like to know what is the way to change default look of destanator part - especially the scroll bar size/look and font properties of top and bottom destinator info bar.

    EDIT: never mind, I think I found it. Now I have to find how to properly change it.

    BUG here??

    Today, I have realized strange thing, when I was planning routes to a different locations. Some even major cities I select from city selection dialog when I am in route planning mode seem not to contain any street names, despite the fact they are mostly major one, and actual map I see on the screen below the dialog with OSK has streets correctly shown and named. In other cases, clicking on city name gives me street list containg nonsences, such as list of 3 streets only, named: 121a, 324/5, 387. Some cities seem to have all streets listed, but still you can see "number names" on top of list. The list looks then for example, upon selecting Kladno town: 236, 7577, 7998, Alberovska, Armencu, Baltazara Kletika,...
    The weirdest behavior was seen today routing to our capital city (Praha) which is listed by its districts in the list of available cities:
    Praha 1
    Praha 2
    ...
    Praha Stresovice
    Praha Zlicin
    etc.
    Clicking (selecting) Praha 1 results in error message popup dialog saying:
    There are no available street names in Praha Stresovice
    [OK]
    Of corse, both Praha1 and Praha Stresovice contain dosens of named streets in the map.

    So for me it lloks like there is some kind of adress database processing error in FreeDrive.
    Can you tell me what is wrong?
