    external gps embedded

    has the external gps embedding code changed at all in the past few releases?

    my gps screen used to work correctly but with version 4-01-05 the gps screen looks like this with the bottom of the screen cut off. every time the gps program opens for the first time it looks like this.


    if i exit and come back it looks the way it should as pictured below.


    i'm not sure which release date it last worked with because i haven't been keeping copies of the old releases. any ideas guino?

    I have not changed anything with the embbeding of applicationssince even before start working on mappoint.. chances are that your application doesn't take very kindly of resizing.. I'd recommend trying to set your application to run maximized or at least make it start with a bigger size (like opening it, setting its normal size to like almost the whole screen and closing it so it remembers that position/size). I am guessing there might be a bug in the border removal function because that used to happen with MM too.

    I'm having trouble sometimes with MM, however it cuts off my zoom-bar on the right-side, and just gives me ablack area, i need to exit/reload or goto menu/gps a few times and then the zoom bar and rest of the "blacked" area on the right-side re-appears...

    Any ideas why it should do this sporadically?!

    go in MM and set it to start Maximized OR to a specified size of at least as big as the embbeded area.. this should take care of that.. I have to see what's the issue here.. I believe the function that removes the border may be at fault..

    hey guino,

    i just got my carputer back up and running and the version of roadrunner i have on there was back from march 2. in that version, iguidance embeds perfectly every time. my motherboard malfunctioned on me shortly after and had to be sent in for repairs so i don't know exactly when the embedding started acting funny but i hope this helps narrow it down somewhat.

    If possible try to make your GPS application's window size as big as possible WITHOUT maximizing it.. if it starts up with a size "big enough" it will likely not show those symptoms .. I'm trying to figure out the issue..

    I was going to ask about this as well. I'm using FreeDrive and it used to embed fine. Now when i start it up its too big. Was thinking of going back to an older version if i can't remedy the problem.

    If you guys use Routis (Iguidance also), the app will NOT run at full screen. The app always run about a "bar" height shorter than full screen. I don't know why, but that the way it is wether you run stand alone or embeded.
