    Help needed for getting info from FreeDrive

    OK. I'm pretty sure that this has been mentioned before but I cannot seem to find the correct syntax for the following.
    I'm trying to get info from FreeDrive (ETA,ETR,Speed... e.t.c) and place it in a label on any RR skin. This should be automatically updated. Does anyone have the correct syntax for this
    The road is long but we are getting there.

    You have to edit the configuration in FreeDrive and tell it to send out the labels to RR.. the label codes are basically a set of custom codes that FD updates (CUSTOMFDSPEED, etc).. they're all listed in the same config file.. check this post out:

    Here is Exactly what you need. I have just done this to the Menu.skin file for the Zots.day skin. It works great. Here is the Information and the attached files needed, including the Image of the LCD showing the Free Drive Information.

    Here is another Menu.skin file that I have made, it removes the Information from the Menu LCD and replaces it with the Information from FreeDrive. The one in a Prior post was for Map Monkey, but I decided there is more information that you can get from FreeDrive, so here it is.

    If you look at the Image, I have removed the Audio Information from the LCD window and replaced it all with the Information From FreeDrive.

    Also, above the On: in the Image is the Next Turn, so if you are to take a Right then above On it will state Turn Right, then On: then below On it will give you the Street Name that you need to turn on.

    The ETR and Time Remaining don't work correctly, but this is a bug in FreeDrive that will be fixed, as stated to me in one of the FreeDrive forum posts.

    Dist to Next: This gives you the data from FreeDrive on how far you have until your Next Turn.

    You need to download the FreeDrive-LCD-menu.skin.zip file. Extract this file to your Zots.day folder under the Skins folder in RR.

    You then Need to download the Freedrive-sdk.ini for Skin to work in RR.zip file and extract the sdk.ini file into your Freedrive Folder, most likely it is located at: C:\Program Files\FreeDrive overwriting your existing file.

    Hope you like this, I am loving it now.
