    Problem with IGuidance not filling the app window in fullscreen skin

    I skinned Iguidance into my Alpine Amber. Everything works great, except 1 thing. This is what the screen looks like when I click GPS from the main menu





    Now, the "Full" button if you click it is supposed to load IG into a skin called External_GPS_FULLSCREEN.SKIN in order to create a full screen appearance (thanks to Zots for the Idea). The problem is as you can see, when I click the full button, the new skin loads, IG loads but it stays in the same dimensions it was in the previous skin.





    The button code is this

    "LOAD;EXTERNAL_GPS_FULLSCREEN.skin;iGPS;C:\Pro gram Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe"

    I could grab and drag the side of the IG window, but does anyone know how to fix this so it goes full window automatically?

    You're not telling the window title to embed.. try:

    "LOAD;EXTERNAL_GPS_FULLSCREEN.skin;iGPS;C:\Pro gram Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe;iGuidance"

    But you should use the same window title you have on RRConfig ...

    FIXED!

    OK, so, Mistyped the command line in the above post - I didn't feel like copy and paste. The real line reads.

    "LOAD;EXTERNAL_GPS_FULLSCREEN.skin;iGPS;C:\Pro gram Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe;iGuidance"

    So embedding was not the issue as far as the load command went.

    HOWEVER, You did force me to look back into RRConfig where I realized the window title was set to "IguidEnce"

    Stupid spelling error. I don't know how long it would have taken to find that had you not said, "It must be the same in RRCONFIG"

    THANKS!

    J187,

    Can we get this revised skin with iGuidance support? So far I have personally used he Alpine solution with success. Until I am ready to tackle the skinning thing myself.

    Strabo, glad to help any way I can, but unfortunately, I don't really understand what you mean by Revised skin with iGuidance? The skin as you see it above is fully functional. Every button works, including the fullscreen button. If you want access to this skin, you got it. I will post again in a few minutes with an attachments.

    1. Download this file
    2. Copy and paste the files inside to your Alpine skin folder
    3. "LOAD;EXTERNAL_GPS_FULLSCREEN.skin;iGPS;C:\Pro gram Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe;iGuidance" that is the command line for the fullscreen button. In order for this to work, you must have the Window title for GPS in RRCONFIG set to iGuidance. And you should replace the above path to iGuidance.exe with your own if it is not the same.
    4. Make sure to set your RRConfig settings to external GPS.
    5. Enjoy.

    OH, btw. I never believed Raphy was steroid-free. I hope you guys can pull it together soon. I would rather see Balt in the hunt, instead of the Yanks. I like the O's this year. If you are not a baseball fan disregard. Let me know any probs with the skin.

    I will try it out. As for the baseball thing I like sports and if they use stuff to enhance their bodies so be it. I sure would like to see the O's do something this year though.

    Hey I have been building my carputer and the only thing hlding me back from complete installation is my bezel (80% complete) once that is done I will be mounting it in myBMW 330I. What is GR-213 for GPS?

    GR-213 is my gps mouse. Basically it is the antenna that connects to the satellites when you use one of the software gps programs available, like iGuidance, Copilot, Mapmonkey, etc. the 213 is brand new and is based on a SIR STAR-III chipset which is supposed to have far superior connectivity. I have only used this one and cannot compare it to any old chipset versions but I can tell you the GR-213 works incredibly well. I connect super fast, stay locked and regain signal very, very quickly coming out of tunnels. I have it mounted on my rear deck and the glass provides very minimal obstruction to the signal. It is also usb and very small. Highly recommended.
