    Hello Im testing the skin in the 2nd post (very nice work) with S&T 2005. Embedding works sort of, it embeds but the buttons on the side also get covered up. Is there any workaboud to this? Or should i just go get 2006. Also when ever I hit a button it seems to want to launch a new instance of S&T. One more thing is I have to boot directly into RR if i dont want the taskbar while running S&T. I really like streets and trips so if someone has any ideas I Thank you for the help. Again it was a late night of configuration, maybe if I start fresh today i will have better luck

    If you can still see the title bar for S&T grab it and wiggle the window and it should resize to fit inside its expected region. This can happen the first time you use S&T in RR.

    For the Task Bar issue, go to the RR settings and select "Hide Task bar"

    Thanks for the kind words. The buttons do sometimes get covered up on the first load, haven’t figured out how to cure it yet, but as HyperSprite said just go up and wiggle the title bar. What I usually do is toggle the “full screen” button twice (upper right corner) and it will be fine until you unload RR and S&T.

    There are a number of functions that are not supported in S&T 2005 so several buttons will not work right. I would upgrade to 2006, it is a much better program that gives visual in route driving directions and voice prompts.

    The problem loading multiple times from the “GPS Window Name” in the RoadRunner GPS setup. Run RRConfig and make sure the name in the window is exactly the same as in the instructions (for 2006 installations). In 2005 the path name is a little different using … Streets and Trips …the word “and” in the path where 2006 uses the “&” sign … Streets & Trips. Change using the “and” version in the GPS Window Name if using 2005

    That is a new function in S&T2006, not available in 2005

    ya, for $30 or so for the 2006 version, the new features are well worth it. I can't wait for Mappoint 2006 though.

    Well I got S&T 2006 just because I love that night map. Removed 2005 and installed 2006. Im very glad I updated as 2006 has more features and maps. Updated the RR config and it works PERFECT!!! Thank you again for this skin / S&T Functionality. Ive never tried any other GPS programs but S&T works great for me so I see no reason to use the others. The only thing that still wont work for me is the OSK. No matter what I type into it when i exit the OSK only the last key I pressed will be in the text field where I had my cursor. Can I do anything to fix this or is that still in development?

    The built-in OSK never works consistently with embedded apps. You'll see that same behavior in IE, etc.

    hmm... wonder if you could get it to work with a sendkey command...

    I have a wireless keyboard/trackball so I've never bothered to try. I'll play with it if I get a chance, but it's probably over my head (I know HTML and SQL... no coding yet, but I can usually read it)
