    IGUIDANCE_ nag screen solution here

    Ok, so now that im on vacation and have a little more time to work on things.
    Ive been trying to figure out a way to kill the nag screen on IGuidance.
    I know others have a fix for this, but i cant seem to get ahold of the files (broken links) that were posted long ago.

    So, i figured some scripting should be able to handle something simple like this.
    I downloaded AutoHotKey which is open source scripting engine, key mapper etc, etc, etc. http://www.autohotkey.com/ very cool program!!

    anyway, i have a working script that kills the nag window.

    this script will kill the nag window if you run the script standalone ie; not embedded in front end.

    script will work with CentraFuse embeded, just point it to the script file instead of iguidance.exe. Seems to take a while but it embeds it correctly.

    Frodoplayer dosent seem to like loading the script and you have to hit the gps button twice for it to embed properly. I think this is just a timeing issue that will be fixed in the new release which will make this script not needed anyway, but for the time being for everyone else.

    download the program from the link above and install it.

    copy this into a new text file

    Code:
    Run, F:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe
    WinWaitActive ahk_class #32770
    IfWinExist, ahk_class #32770
    WinActivate
    Send,{enter}
    Send,{enter}

    edit the path to iguidance to point to where you have it installed on your machine, and save it as nagscreen.ahk or whatever you like.ahk

    make sure the script is saved in the same dir as iguidance.exe or you will get errors


    You can also compile the script as an .exe file, but since the path may be different on different computers you have to compile it as a .exe yourself, but this step is not needed.

    enjoy and let me know if you have any problems, and ill try to help.

    also, with a little editing, this should work for any program that pops up a window, not just IG. all you need is the window name

    anybody actually use this?

    I tried it out in my car after testing it in the house and for some reason it didnt work, not sure why, but i rewrote it while in the car so if the above script didnt work for you, try this (more simple) one.


    Code:
    Run, F:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe
    WinWaitActive ahk_class #32770
    
    Send,{enter}

    Yep You would be able to launch the nav from frodo unembedded, but frodoplayer seems to have problems with the command line parameters... I've told Frodo already.

    I don't use a front end anyway. I'm just happy that the nag screen is gone, and now with autohotkey creating the mini program my GPS iNav icon is a speed limit sign reading 85MPH.
