    Copilot 7 takes up the whole screen so you cant switch back and forth between mediacar and copilot.

    I guess if we could atleast size the window it would work or atleast make it so copilot is running within a window instead of full screen
    There is an option under copilot 7 to always show the task bar. Makes switching between apps easier.

    I tried that but it didn;t seem to do anything. I will try that option again and see what happened. Though it isn't the slickest soulution i think it will have to do for now.

    I believe it would be possible to display just the map...if you had a way to interpret the calls required...

    It seems the guidance page is an xml (or) VB type overlay. It uses the bitmaps in the bitmap folder for SOME of the icons etc.

    However it also uses some imbedded bitmaps within that same section of code previously mentioned.

    So right now I am trying to figure out how to view those bitmaps, then edit them. If I can view them (assemble/disassemble) then I can change them.

    Basically half the backgrounds are bitmaps, and the other half are encoded...almost looks sloppy, but I am sure there is a reason.

    Can anybody out there direct me to a program that will reassemble bitmaps from the code? (hex)?

    antimatter,

    Have my Mediacar screens designed at 800x570. That leaves my task bar showing and I can keep mediacar running while I use the system for other things.

    Any Updates on this?

    Are there any updates on this? I would love to be able to try out LIVE on my 10.4" (640x480) Pretty much worthless out of the box.

    What about an auto-hide taskbar. That way you have the benefit of the taskbar when you need it but you don't have to have it ruining the looks of MediaCar

    Oops, sorry, I got slowed down by the graphics. I can't find an easy...or any way for that matter...way to edit the internal graphics down to size. I can edit everything else, but it gets lost while trying to remap the buttons around the display. You can get a real nice pic with 800x600, but 640x480 is really being difficult.

    Still working on it.

    Hey that resource tuner program is fantastic...much better than the two others I tried. I may be closer to finishing than I thought.
