    Start embedded gps?

    How to start embedded gps software? If i run the exe file, it will run outside of Frodo, and if i just make it a keystroke (shortcut in fp) I need to have frodoplayer selected to be able to run it.

    Hmmm... I don't really understand your question but I'll try to answer.

    NaviVoice is a separate program that should not be embedded. It will run outside. If you have the navigation embedded in Frodo then all the commands will work except for fullscreen for the navigation. If you run the navigation separately then it will work.

    BTW: The most stable version right now is v1.2.5... the later version were "development releases".

    Sorry for my bad english I have Destinator embedded in Frodoplayer, and I would like to start it via a voice command. The problem is that if I tell NaviVoice just to run destinator.exe it wont run embedded. Then I thought of letting the phrase "open navigation" just make NaviVoice simulate i keystroke, and then I told frodoplayer to start navigation when the specific key was striked. That worked good, exept that I have to have Frodoplayer the frodoplayer window "selected" (on top?) to make it respond to the keystroke.

    I haven't tested Dest in Frodo. But if you want to have the command then you can also set it to auto-focus on Destinator (look for the spy app).

    I'm wondering the same. I'm using frodo with iguidance. Is there some way to make "open navigation" open iguidance embedded into frodo (same function as main menu/gps button). I just downloaded the software today and i've gone thru all the FAQs i've seen and i havent found a solution. GREAT software btw... adds a whole new element to a carputer.

    Thanks I think Frodoplayer Take 4 will include something like this, and I will have an option to check if frodoplayer is running then embed
