    Can I listen to mp3 while using GPS

    What I want to know is if I'm listing to music, can I go back to main menu and select gps?

    I think it would be good to have some sort of task bar for apps allready running, say at the top neat the time.

    I'm not a programmer so I dont even know if this can be done with your software.

    Also why does the DVD button bring up the softwares own keyboard everytime I press it?

    Thanks for listening

    Yes, this is entirely possible, and I do it all the time I believe this was one of the basic principles of the application

    The problem is that once you have the GPS screen up, you have only minimal control over the MP3 (volume, etc.) To do anything else, you have to exit the GPS screen which stops your tracking. It would be nice to be able to switch back and forth. Unless I'm missing something.

    OK, I figured it out.

    The more I use it the more I like it!!

    As my gps is an external program, I just add the gps in the it will always stay open even if you exit the window. Change songs etc, then go back into launch then tab across and there it is.

    This suits me now but it would be good to see a "main menu" button on dvd, gps etc windows.

    Well thats it I'm happy.

    Now just this DVD button??? Why does it show a keyboard everytime?

    Get the 1.8.5.2 patch, that fixes the "DVD shows Keyboard" bug. coyote when he was testing the keyboard mapped it to the DVD button, but forgot to change it.

    And, you can go back to the main menu from the DVD/GPS windows, it's the "Exit" button. That will leave the program running, but will go back to the menu It will only stop the GPS when you click "Close"

    Oh, and you can set up your GPS software to be opened from the "GPS" button on the main screen, and don't need to use the External Apps/Launch menu It's configurable in the settings
