    Done! Until there's a better solution, for anyone else that is looking to incorporate iGuidance into RR, here's what I did:

    Installed iGuidance. Downloaded iGmod and decompressed to some folder. Left Mappoint integration as is. In RR config, select the GPS button to go to MENU. For navi path, set it to the folder and executable for iGmod. Set Window name to igm.

    What happens:
    Now, when I run RR and hit GPS, I get the menu that allows me to opt for Destinator (which I don't have), Mappoint, and External. Obviously, Mappoint launches mappoint inside of it's integrated skin as before, and external launches iGmod, which opens iGuidance in the External GPS skin.

    My opinion:
    I am very excited about this b/c I get iGuidance accessible from RR, and still have access to Mappoint, which I am comfortable with. At the moment, I am favoring iGuidance as it loads MUCH quicker than MP. MP is superior regarding POI, but I like the interface of iGuidance with iGmod much better, even though it seems a bit buggy. Also, the arrow representing the vehicle tends to "stick" to the road, so if the map is off a tiny bit, you can't tell. I'm very happy at this point. I hope the RR integration gets even better! I have a great feeling that it will. Thanks to all working on this project. -Alan


    :EDIT: I spoke too soon. For some reason, iGuidance hangs now when launched through RR as described above...it was working earlier. what gives? If I launch iGuidance on it's own, everything is cool; however, when I launch via RR (calling iGmod which calls iGuidance) it just hangs. I'm wondering if the nag screen is existing in the background. Doesn't iGmod get rid of the nag screen? ...and just when I thought I had it workin......

    :EDIT AGAIN: okay, so I think I might have figured out my problem...to get MP AND iG running on the same instance, I need a COM port splitter...time to search

    I did, found it, and tried it, but can't seem to figure out RR settings for this. It's very frustrating. I split the COM port, and use one for MP and the other for iG. But whenever I try to set it up, the GPS Port keeps getting reset to zero in RRConfig.

    I wonder if anyone has successfully implemented iGuidance AND Mappoint/Streets&Trips at the same time. I can't seem to come up with any search results on this.

    I know your problem, I run into it and I just really **** me up.
    There are 2 ways to solve this problem.
    1) GPS mode set for External (for iGuidance) under RR config so when click on GPS, iG will run as external. Well unless you guys modified this part of the code.
    Now manually edit RR.ini file and add mappointport = whateverGPS_COM_PORT_IS
    You are done.
    2) GPS mode set for Mappoint under RR config.
    Well, you have to use the RUN command to run GPS proggy (iG) for all GPS buttons on the skin.
    Because if GPS mode set for Mappoint, mappointport entry will be in RR.ini file. Other GPS mode, RR config will not write that entry to the ini file.

    Thank you very much. Looking forward to trying this out.
    1) I see, but how would you launch MP from RR? I assume just by setting RRConfig to use the MENU for GPS.
    2) I will try this one, first. It seems more feasible.
    Thanks again I'll report back once I check it out.

    The mappointport setting is only saved from RRConfig when Mappoint or OTHER is selected from the list of GPS selections. but you CAN set it manually as posted.

    understood, but what would make it revert to zero?
