    Excellent, thanks Guino - BIG Smiley face from me .... you will open RR wide open then to allow plugins etc.

    Could you possibly provide a .bas file to add to a vb app to call the hooks etc? Or at least an example once its done ... appreciate your work.

    I've done a test I copied the maps from MS autoroute 2005 to Map Point because it's newer map for the euroupean maps what I know. And it works great. The Map Point is from 2004. I don't have the possibility to test in my car so far but I do it tomorrow.

    BTW Great job Guino.

    This is no issue.. it's simply impossible (as far as I know) to detect when an application is playing voice/sound, unless RR is the application making the sound itself.. so the volume reduction works in any voice over from RR.. but unless somebody finds a way to detect sounds from other applications, it will never work for external applications.. It is also important to note that if you don't use Mappoint, you should make sure your GPS setting in RRConfig is 0 (Zero), or your GPS application may not be able to open your GPS.

    It would be nice to have the navigation speech louder and/or the reduction in volume be configurable to be more than 50%. I found it audible on the way to work but would have preferred it a little louder compared to the music.

    well.. right now this controls the Winamp volume only (I intend to expand to video as well).. but the way to do this is set whatever winamp volume you want -- that's going to be your limit % to reduce... if you have winamp's volume at 80% than using 80% or value above it will resute in muting the sound while speaking.. 50% is the default only.. I have tried all ranges... I personally find it nice by leaving winamp vol at 50% and reducing 40% while speaking ... that only leaves 10% of volume while speaking directions.. The reasons I have winamp's volume at 50% are:
    1-It allows me to play videos and music without noticing too much volume change, that is, without having to mess with the volume.
    2-It allows me to move the EQ bands above center without distorting the sound too much..
    3-It will allow me to add a "increase %" setting according to the car's speed in the near future..

    I must have been half asleep this morning (actually, having been up to 4am I know for a fact I was ). I see now that it is configurable. I'll try reducing the music volume.

    I'm struggling to get the latest build running on my dev machine which has MapPoint installed. When I run rrconfig and select mappoint as the default gps (the only way I can get it to work), I get:
    ---------------------------
    RoadRunnerConfig
    ---------------------------
    Run-time error '424':

    Object required
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------
    and RRConfig exits. I didn't have this issue with the 3-19 drop.
