    Ok, so now i've just have to ask. Do everyone of you (that is using S&T/AutoRoute) have a keybord in your car, or do you never route? Or perhaps someone have an OSK that works now?

    That's a good question. It sounds like everyone either has a keyboard in the car or plans out their route ahead of time and then loads it in.

    I have S&T 06 and am going to download the second skin on this thread tonight for a trial run. I sure would like to see the OSK working. I'm sure it will get figured out sooner or later. BTW-The skins look awesome!

    I have a little thumb pad for mine, I gave up on the osk, there is just something odd about how S&T takes input.

    I am working on some "add to route" and "route from here" buttons so I can add a destination based on POI information quicker.

    S&T 2006 and OSK

    Ok, I just did a little manual test and think I have a workaround, just need some time to make it happen. I am new to all of this and just got RR running on my CarPC last Night and the CarPC installed Sunday. Anyway, if I can modify the way the OSK send the text in, instead of whatever method it currently uses, agin new to this, have not had a chance to look at the source, the method that seems like it will work is to use the windows clipboard to cop[y the entered text from the OSK text box control and paste it into the S&T text box.

    I hope to get time to look at this tonight after I finish at my real job.

    @4thGenLude, good luck to you in that matter. I'm going to use a keyboard for my trip to Germany, but after that I don't think I'll be typing so much that I'll have use for a keybord. But an OSK working in S&T would be nice.

    Well, as a matter of fact, I just threw together a little test using a text box in VB and was able to post the text entered in the text box into the url line of IE using send keys to send the CTL + V (for paste) and ENTER.

    As other people have stated, some text boxes in other applications requier you to enter the entire string at one shot, I just figured using the clipboard to do a simple paste would make that easy.

    Now I just need to crack open the OSK code tonight, EST.

    Sounds like you're on the right path. Good luck!


    Well, I've downloaded Softec's skin and installed it onto my test pc. I have to say S&T 2006 would be extremely hard to use while in car without this skin! It's a must have.

    The only thing that stuck out to me was that since the SENDKEYs are all taking you through menu navigation every time you push a button on the skin you see a quick blip of the menus. I looked into the files and S&T a little more and I was able to clean a few of them up with keyboard shortcuts vs. going through the menu.

    Below is the code that I changed in the file External_GPS.skin.

    For finding nearby places:
    Original:
    Code:
    B03,0,216,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;%TN","Find Near"
    Changed: %TN to ^d
    Code:
    B03,0,216,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;^d","Find Near"
    For GPS panes:
    Original:
    Code:
    B04,0,290,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;%TP","GPS Pane"
    Changed: %TP to ^a
    Code:
    B04,0,290,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;^a","GPS Pane"

    For Route Planner:
    Original:
    Code:
    B06,0,440,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;%UR","Route Menu"
    Changed: %UR to ^r
    Code:
    B06,0,440,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;^r","Route Menu"

    Then you can change Zoom in and Zoom out to + / - instead of the menu alternative, and perhaps change map instead of changing between two specified maps. I´m at work now and I don't remember the shortcuts, but hope you understand what I mean.
