    GPS and XM

    Is there anyway to keep listening to XM and be able to use GPS without it shutting off. I can get it to keep playing the xm if I Alt-Tab and select MI to bring it back into focus MI will go back to the main menu while XM continues. Would there be a way to shut off xm or the line in when someone enters another mode that requires sound instead of as soon as the xm module is exited the sound shuts off? Thanks for the program.

    Good idea! I was going to set it up to do that, but I must have forgotten to add it. Thank you. This will be in the next release, along with some minor bug fixes.

    It would be nice if the XM channels (presets) were available when in GPS mode. Maybe have the GPS functions up top and the XM preset at the bottom? Looks like there's room up top.

    I didnt go too far in making one set of buttons from one module available in another. I only made the audio player controls available in each module in the beginning. Since I've added the XM module, it has opened up alot of new possibilities and new options that could be added. That is an excellent idea, but to really make it work correctly and well, I should make them available in all the modules and the program should know if audio is playing or if XM is, just the same as the mp3 audio controls. This will take a large amount of additional development. I may include it in a cut down version that only has several of the key modules in it. Thanks for the input!

    Which brings a great issue;
    Is there any way to maintain GPS and IE (Internet) open the whole time MI is open; there are many reasons but the main one is that those two programs can be used at different times when the info displayed is useful.
    I guess this might be an issue of preference, but I like to be able to go back and forth GPS without needing to go to menu>recent to get the latest entry to it.
    The same with Internet, there are times when you may want to have your email open and wanna check on it later on...
    I'd like to know if these are options that can be added to the settings or not.
    Thanks!!!

    Not in the settings, but I could add a web button in the GPS module possibly so you could switch back and forth. What does everyone else think? Let me know. Thanks.
