Working out the bugs with MC and Routis
I'm using routis at the moment for GPS and have a few issues that make the MC/Routis combo less than ideal.
When I click the GPS button and routis opens ... the start bar is visible (no biggie) but mediacar is not listed. So the only way to leave the GPS open and go back to mediacar is to minimize routis (as MC is still in the back, just not listed in the start bar)
However then if I want to go back to routis I can't ... hitting the GPS button opens the gps screen of the skin, but routis is minimized so I can't see it
these results are the same with and without the run embeded box checked in mc setup.
I also thought of maybe running routis on its own (not through mc) and then starting up mc ... but then the only way to get to routis is to exit mc.
ideally i'd like to be able to listen to music, and let the gps run in the background so it can give me directions. but i still want to be able to flip back to see the map.
Coyote ... some features that might make MC work better with various gps packages:
- Add a command to minimize mediacar. This would be useful in other situations as well were you want access to your desktop but don't want to close mc.
- when the GPS button is clicked, if the software is already running, force a 'maximize' command on the window holding the GPS software. that way if it's minimized it comes back to the screen.
i run routis embedded in MC perfectly
I am using it jsut fine. I can also switch mack to mp3 or any other mode and still have roustis run so i can hear the voice navigation. What version of MC are u running?... Instead of closing routis, i just click on exit. Maybe its a new bug because i'm still using 1.8.5
