    FP and gps question

    So what gps program does everyone use with FP? Any thing I should be aware of? I'm looking for some opinions and experiences with FP and gps.

    I personally like iGuidance. I have used Delorme Sreet Atlas and MS Streets & Trips in the past, but if you want that seamless integration I highly recommend trying iGuidance.

    I use FreeDrive. Easy to use and a new version is just around the corner (can't wait).

    Super easy, you just point Fp to load FD or IG form setting 2 and that is it.

    Also with the new skining gps window in version 1.10 is even better.

    How hard would it be to skin with version 1.09? I want buttons on my GPS screen to control the music of FP, not the ugly gray bar with the "hide" button.

    It doesn't have to be grey, change the color scheme on your windows taskbars. I use FP 1.90 with Freedrive and they work and look great except I can't control the music yet with it. Would rather use FP 1.10 with the new release of freedrive coming up, Just had some bugs I can't figure out yet. But hey for free, none of us can complain.
    .... BTW does anyone know of a way I can control the music using what I have?

    If with toolbar you mean the GPS window that it has the "hide" button and the media controls the answer is NO, if you want to skin that you have part you nned version 1.10.
