    running PDA emulator as gps

    i've got a pda emulator set up with tom tom at the mo
    i have run a batch file to run it and want mobile impact to use this as my gps software

    however when i try to run it from within MI it kicks up a stink and says it can't find a file (one specified in the batch file, also in the same folder as batch file)

    any ideas?

    Try this, open the config.ini file and find this section->
    [GPS]
    GPSLEFT=-5
    GPSTOP=-75
    GPSWIDTH=810
    GPSHEIGHT=565
    GPSPATH=C:\Documents and Settings\edickinson\Desktop\iGmod\ig mod.exe
    GPSCLASS=ThunderRT6MDIForm

    Step 1: Type in the path of the program/batch file in the GPSPATH.
    Step 2: Download wingrab from my website and run it
    Step 3: Run the emulator running Tomtom and then drag and drop the crosshairs icon from wingrab to the emulator. When you let go of the crosshairs, Text will show in the boxes. The Class Name is what you should enter for the GPSCLASS.
    Step 4: change the GPSLEF/TOP/WIDTH/HEIGHT settings to adjust the way the program embeds.

    If you can get me the emulator and the tomtom stuff I could probablyfigure out how to make it work perfectly if the above instruction dont work out. Let me know. Thanks.

    Yes please send me the emulator. I will need the tomtom as well because I want to test your batch file and include it or make any necessary changes. How big is tomtom?

    the batch file doesn't actually do anything with any tom tom files it just runs the emulator and makes sure its 800*600 and knows where to get the saved state from

    Ok, just give me the batch file, and the emulator and I will take it from there.
