    Garmin Mobile PC question

    Does Mobile PC allow for destination entry by coordinates? Just making sure before I buy this, I am going to make a plugin to integrate this to RR if it is worth the while. IG 2009 looks pretty good and I have been using IG for years but deifnitely looking for something fresh.

    if you can get that bugger into RR you would be legend

    i went back to nroute in the end still have not brought a copy of mobile PC, as there is no local version, so im using after market maps which work fine, but its pointless if i cant embed it into RR.

    im happy to help test things if you need.

    Haven't tested extensively, but so far I've also found GMPC works fine with XPort on my laptop with a BU-353.

    xport works fine with gmpc here.

    1. is there already a solution for rr with good OSK (on screen keyboard) support. saying this, it works wit rr OSK but some key are not working, i.e. backspace

    2. would like to set a label in rr which is set whenever i approach a poi (speedcam) and rr shows me some warning text on every screen. how could i integrate this into rr (garmin sdk is availablek, anybody used it yet for pc edition)

    I will be working a script for a OSK specific to GMPC once I am convinced I need it. The plan as of now is working out a way to mount a keyboard (mini industrial) in to my center console. I hate OSKs, nothing worse than trying to type on a keyboard that is vertical and partially glared from sun.
