Ok, a few install notes, to make life harder MS has changed the default install directory from "Microsoft Streets and Trips" to Microsoft Streets & Trips". I changed the default back to "and" so the skin still works as well as it did before.
I am going to see if I can edit the GPS pane again for bigger buttons and change the skin to work better with this version. I am probably going to add a "near full screen" screen as well (removing the top bar) because the directions thing takes up a lot of real estate. So it will end up a three screen skin. Normal, with audio, near full screen, not too bad.
I am on a trip out to Tampa next week so I am hoping the time on the air will be some good quiet time for me to rework the skin to add some functionality.
