    Updates...

    Is there any updates in the pipeline for FD.

    I still can't find a way of making the menu stay on longer. Its a little dodgie when driving as you have to sort of look at the screen to see where your finger is then press... then look again for next press... Menu goes off before I can scan all the buttons. Why not make it stay on till cancel is clicked

    Oh and is there a way to toggle over to night mode from within an RR skin?

    Hi.


    Well Since your using RR you can actually make a skin in roadrunner that resembles the FD menu.

    There is a command in freedrive called "swapskin" that can toggle between day and night view. There are also the separate "Day" and "Night" skin commands.

    Take a look at the attached files to see how I'm using freedrive from within RR.


    Now if only CDR would implement that hovering button so we could have a full screen map it would be great.

    cheers Tolisn,

    got just what I needed from your files to make night mode work... Except the menu timeout... Is there anyway to make the menu remain on screen longer?

    The original FD menu cannot be made to stay on screen longer, but you can make your own FD menu with a RR skin. See the files posted on how to do this. The External_GPS.skin file is the RR screen that imbeds FD. This screen contains a button called "GPS options" This button is the pseudo FD menu which is infact a RR menu skin file specially designed for FD.This pseudo FD menu can contain almost everything that the original FD menu contains. See the readme.txt file in FreeDrive to see all the available commands.
    This pseudo FD menu will stay on screen until the "Return" button is pressed. You can also have a button in this menu ("FD menu" in my skin) that brings up the original FD menu so you can operate various functions that are not included in FD SDK command set. If you study the files posted I think you will get all your answers. Let me know if you need anything else

    CDR - Do you have any plans to switch/adapt FD to SirF mode?
