    Well yes, there is that as well. The idea being that you don't have to worry about the iGuidance windows...

    It's ok guys, if you don't want it I'll just develop it for myself It's not like I'm asking for $$$ or anything!

    The above method uses app swapping and key sending. The integrated method that I use revolves around getting the handles of each of the actual commands, so it is faster and more robust. It also gives a greater feeling of real integration.

    you can allready do all of that minus the temp which IG has nothing to do with.

    Im not trying to rag on what your trying to do, im just trying to understand what it is your doing and whats the benifit of doing it this way.
    If its a better way im more than happy to hop on board.
    I understand, if you can send commands directly, yeah its better than send key, but how are you sending commands from RR to IG without using sendkey?
    I also see there is no file menu, how did you go about doing this or is same as other methods (skinbedder etc).

    Dont let us deter you, we just want to know more about what it is.

    The benefit I see ls less clutter you can have a full ig screen and have the pop up come up when you want to zoom change views and other stuff like mute and other stuff in my pioneer screen I have a lot of ig commands mapped but would have liked to map a lot more so this is kind of a nice solution .

    Skippy, I can get you some code on doing a really easy implementation of the OSK if you message me. The basic steps are:

    -Detect/anticipate when IG opens the osk
    -Hide the IG osk
    -Open the RR osk
    -When the user presses something on the RR osk copy the textbox string into the IG osk
    -Embed the IG preview list at your desired location/height in the RR osk

    Then again you can probably figure that stuff out just as easy as I can, it looks like you know what your doing Anywho if/when you have a better way to send commands then simulating keypresses, I will be the first one to copy that method off of you.

    Hey Guys... I can't express how happy it makes me to see united efforts from different users in improving RR... I really started this project for the community.. never intended for it to be "sold" or "marketed"... so, while time is tight for me lately, be sure I'll help with anything I can on your efforts..

    This seems very nice!

    2 questions:

    - does IG cover europe?

    - how do you control IG if not via sendkeys?

    Very interested in all good solutions that go beyond embedding for navigation. I'm talking from a commercial point of view, which should no longer be a secret around here anymore...

    Thanks for sharing your efforts, like I already said: I like it!

    OK, and does IG europe act the same as the US version? I know mappoint for example didn't.

    I would finally like a good commercial navigation-solution for europe, that can be integrated into a good front-end.

    In real life I'm really not that difficult you know
