    Streets 07 GPS enable via skin command?

    I have S&T 2007 and use the BMV2-esque skin for it in RR. The buttons make opening all the command windows (like GPS) easy. I found a thread containing AutoIt scripts for automatically enabling GPS, centering the map position, and turning on the GPS trail. Is there a way to turn all these on upon hitting the GPS button in the RR skin? Seems like a cleaner solution (and the AutoIt script isn't working for me).

    i use my own script to launch streets, enable GPS, switch to larger fonts,keep map centered and create a splash screen to avoid seeing my desktop while loading,(the clipping area makes a hole in the skin)also i did some reshack work to streets to make the fonts bigger, and kill the splash screen.in my skin i can switch from ig to streets and google earth.if you want my script i'll share it.

    I don't use directions (yet). Yes, I'd love that script. Do you just point a button press to an autoit exe file?

    ok here it is, honestly i haven't test this yet, in my car i use to use other script, and i come up with this, you can replace the splash.jpg to match you're skin, or if you don't want it. edit the autoit script.

    I'm working on creating a button script for RR that uses key commands to check all the GPS boxes. It works but I didn't think about hitting the button multiple times to open and close the GPS window. Doh! I'm going to assign the "GPS open and check the boxes" to another button I never use (like the OSK or voice commands) and keep the GPS button operation the same (open and close GPS panel).

    The script is something like this: "...SENDKEY;^a||SENDKEY; ||SENDKEY;{TAB}||SENDKEY;{TAB}||SENDKEY; ||SENDKEY;{TAB}||SENDKEY; "

    It opens the GPS panel, selects "start GPS", tabs to and selects "center map on location", tabs to and selects "create GPS trail". It might not be fully accurate, as I'm doing this from memory. I like this solution better than the AutoIt scripts, which don't seem to work for me anyway.

    this has been designed around st and ar it does everything mentioned above and more also it will start st or ar when you hit gps button,all you have to do is change the root in rrconfig to start keys first more info here.

    Thanks! That's EXACTLY what I was looking for when I started my quest. I'll give it a try.
