    Hey guino please add preventation so if i send the "list" command while already in the video browser it doesn't open audio browser and play audio i think i have mentioned this bug before i hope you fix it as i always seem to press list twice to get into Video Browser as sometimes it is a little slow and i don't know that it is loading.

    Also the search bug still exists when when you search playlist it only searches down the playlist from the current playing track and ignores al the tracks above the current playing track from the search.

    Zoom modes work great now with mpg's thanks for the Cut zoom only problem now seems to be is the when playing avi movies the zoom mode don't seem to do anything much? This is only with the internal player if i use MPC then the zooms work with avi's.

    Maybe the config tool should be sorted in tabs like in media car as there is allot of settings there now in one page.

    You've done a great deal of work in this new version and it's nice to see you are still sorting out the little things while adding big new features keep up the good work.

    I'll fix the "list" bug..

    The Search list is not a bug, it is like that so you can keep on searching for more "hits"..
    You'll be able to do what you want with the new version by using this code:

    "GOTOFIRST||SEARCHLIST"

    Interesting, I've tested teh zoom with Builtin player and AVI in my car today.. seems to work fine.. the built in player works a hell of a lot better then MPC too..

    The Config tool is Temporary.. for now I'm only making changes to it as necessary.. I don't want to spend time doing something that looks nice and then have to change it over whenever I have to add a new setting.. for now, it's supposed to just work.. at least until someone (or myself) comes up with a config tool that has a INI of its own where you can configure the categories and settings to be configured in it. I personally hate that Tabbed control for being so big and so useless code wise -- I specially don't want to be adding OCXs to the Config tool.

    Thanks for the support..

    Most people seem to view this as a bug. Can you change it so that the first search on a playlist searches from the start and that subsequent searches continue from the current search point? That would match people's expectations better, I think.

    Hi thanks for the quick response.

    I see know why it is implemented like this i guess i'll wait for a more improved search facility hopefully something simmilar to Media Engine with seperate screen.

    The zoom modes are very different for me depending on the type of media mpg or avi and the player used road runner or mpc i cannot figure out why but i think it is because the built in one is trying to keep the aspect ratio when zooming so it doesnt do the cut zooms whereas if i use MPC then it will zoom regardless of aspect ratio. If this is the case then could there please be an option to keep or not keep aspect ratio when zooming. The built in player works much better more faster and smoother on my machine than MPC.

    This is working nice for me. A couple features which would be neat is a HOME feature. So no matter where you are you can select GUIDE HOME and it would route you there.

    I did notice that MapPoint floats a lot huh. I'm sure it's just the app and maybe the next version it will be better. I have not tried it on the road yet but I have read that it tends to float off the road. Has anyone had this problem or does it seem to snap to the road ok?

    It's lookin good Guino!

    Much better. I did initially get one failure error on shutting down RR - 'array is fixed or temporarily locked' and RR crashed. I couldn't repro.

    After that (may be related?) my GPS was playing up - the GPS com port was no longer available (had to disconnect it and reconnect it to fix that). In the meantime mappoint within RR was giving a confusing error that didn't indicate the real problem. When I ran MapPoint standalone, it did give me a useful error allowing me to fix it.

    Does the route save / import functionality work yet?

    Yeah it does that.. guess it's just not all that updated.. it tends to do it when I get off exits.. but thankfully the routing distance function gives good recalculations when you're off.. it's good when you decide to take a turn out of the route and re-join it later, the direction will try to catch up to the current GPS position...

    PS: Home function is plannes, Favorites too.. (I'm not a big fan of the Save/Import Route thing -- it's slow, takes a lot of space etc..)

    I am releasing those features today.. but I really don't like it, it's very wastefull.. I am thinking in terms of a "Favorites list" instead..

    That's what I want too. I was investigating the other to see if it could work like that .

    quick question. do i need the gps receiver plug in to test mappoint? I'm trying to test mappoint on my laptop without the gps receiver but it wouldn't load. when clicking on mappoint, the skin would show up but rr ends up crashing. Can someone give me a quick "howto" on setting up mappoint? I got the whole program installed and working in standalone mode but not in rr. Thanks.
