oh, i like your arrow... you are doing exactly what i'm doing but for MM... i've kinda switch over to FD cause it seems more user friendly... not to mention CDR responds within an hour (it seems)!!!
As for me, i'm using Zot's skin and the default skin for FD... it's worked pretty good so far. I need to update my flash applets.
Also i'm still working if the external GPS screen, like the one above... i'm trying to maximize map space, which still including turns and distances and street... it's a challenge for figure out a logical way to do all that. I guess i have to look at more OEM navi systems.
post your skin when you have it working ... i guess if it looks good, i can try it on my skin... and i'll do the same.
