    Brushed Metal Streets and Trips 2006 skin

    Hi all,

    For those of you using the Brushed Metal skin and want to use MS Streets and Trips 2006, here's are the files you need. Thank Hypersprite for figuring this out for Streets and trips 2005... I've only created Brushed Metal skin and used the 2006 version.

    http://www.seattle5s.com/BrushedMeta...dTrips2006.zip

    The Zip file contains the following:
    Streets.skin
    Streets2.skin (more buttons)
    Steets_on.jpg
    Streets_off.jpg
    Streets_empty.jpg
    Streets_down.jpg
    Streets2_on.jpg
    Streets2_off.jpg
    Streets2_empty.jpg
    Streets2_down.jpg

    You'll need to modify 3 files of the Brushed Metal .skin files.

    menu.skin
    Look for the following line:
    B06,418,298,369,116,"GPS","GPS"

    This is currently line 11, and change it to:

    B06,418,298,369,116,"LOAD;STREETS.SKIN;Streets;C:\ Program Files\Microsoft Streets & Trips\Streets.exe;Microsoft Streets & Trips","Streets"

    exit_menu.skin
    Look for the following line
    B01,000,013,411,057,"EXIT","Exit"

    This is currently line 6, and change it to

    B01,000,013,411,057,"CLOSEWINDOW;Microsoft Streets & Trips||EXIT","Exit"

    Audio_Player.skin
    Look for the following line
    B04,206,165,64,84,"GPS",""

    This is currently line 9, and change it to

    B04,206,165,64,84,"LOAD;STREETS.SKIN;Streets;C:\Pr ogram Files\Microsoft Streets & Trips\Streets.exe;Microsoft Streets & Trips","Streets"



    Streets and Trips 2006
    The following was written by Hypersprite to better setup Streets and trips so that when initially opened, it is best setup for in car use on a small touchscreen

    [Open up Streets and trips,] position the map so it opens on your home town at a decent zoom level, or wherever you happen to drive the most. Now drag the Drawing and Standard menus to undock them and place them out of the way, this way when you open up Streets in Road Runner they will not take up usable space. Also go to View, Toolbars, Location and Scale and uncheck it (it seems to remember this option on future openings where as the other ones, sometimes yes, sometimes no.
    For maps that are not as harsh at night and easier to read I the day time, try changing the map style at View, Map Style, Terane Map, it just works a bit better (although still not 3D). Now save your template to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Streets & Trips\Templates as New North American Map.stt

    Another Streets BM Skin

    Here is another Streets & Trips 2006 skin based on the Brushed Metal skin.
    I have been using it for about three weeks now including a long trip last week an everything seems to be working. The OSK it calls up is the one used in WindowsXP. I Also included a Brushed Aluminum variant of this. Enjoy!!

    http://home.att.net/~cougar428/ST2006_BA_PSD.zip

    Installation Instructions;

    Streets & Trips 2006 should be fully installed and functional prior to installing the skin.

    Using the RRConfig Utility, enter the following information in the GPS Pane;

    GPS Mode = External

    GPS Path = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Streets & Trips\Streets.exe (or your install directory if custom install)

    GPS Window Name = - Microsoft Streets & Trips


    Copy all files beginning with the name “GPS_ST2006… to your Bushed Metal skin directory.

    Rename your External_GPS.skin file to External_GPS.orig

    Copy the file named GPS_ST2006.skin to External_GPS.skin

    Load RoadRunner, reset your skin and test the GPS functions.


    All functions are documented in the “tool tip” section of the respective .skin file.

    Nice work - what resolution are you running in the car? Is it on a small screen? Have you also used iGuidance - how does it compare in your opinion? Any screen shots of it telling you where to turn next (in large print), etc.? I'm really curious about this now.

    Will S&T re-calculate the route if you leave the path?

    I've had Mappoint 04, now use iGuidance, but have yet to put S&T 06 in the car b/c of this.



    EDIT: their demo video shows the ability to re-calculate, but it has to be done with a click. iGuidance will re-calculate without any interaction.

    just downloaded the skin and was looking at some of the functions...

    If a keyboard shortcut exists to re-calculate route, I'd add a button to my skin for this and use S&T 06. How are you guys finding the keyboard shortcuts? Sorry, I haven't played with the software much, yet.

    Also, is the SENDKEYS function working 100%? It is so sketchy with iGuidance that it's pretty much worthless. I'm hoping that it works smoothly with S&T since there is probably a good SDK.

    Hark;

    The screen resolution is 800x600 on a 10.4 screen”. I use a Viewsonic ViewPad 1000 for my carpc. It uses a touch screen interface and is a totally self contained pc, 800mhz Celeron.

    I have never used iGuidance. I have another program on my PocketPC called Ostia. Its way to small and requires a computer to generate the maps for travel.

    I started with Streets & Trips 2005. I like the look and feel, but it was limited on live directions during travel. The 2006 version solved a lot of those issues.

    There is a review of S&T 2006 at the following thread. I will post some other screen shots showing various driving direction windows when I get home later tonight.

    ITL;

    S&T will recalculate the path from your current positions it is the button on the left side that looks like a dotted U-Turn. The reroute does require user action, other wise it just tells you “OFF ROUTE”.

    All of the functions in the skin use the programs keyboard short cuts in the RoadRunner sendkeys function. Almost every function in S&T has a short cut.


    All;

    Key Definitions.

    Top row left to right – all music related
    Previous track, stop, play/pause, next track --- Vol-, Mute, Vol+, Full Screen Toggle (widens over both side panels)

    Left Side Top to Bottom
    Tool bars toggle
    OSK, not functional
    Find Points of Interest (new side pane)
    Open GPS Pane
    Reroute from Current Position
    Route Planner Pane
    Repeat Last Instruction


    Right Side Top to Bottom
    Zoom to Selected Point
    Zoom In
    Zoom Out
    Zoom to Entire Route
    Day/Night Toggle
    Route Text/Next Turn Pane Toggle
    Return to RoadRunner

    I'm assuming some of the mappoint skins/menus are being used for route planning etc...is this correct?

    This is what I'd hope for, anyway. Mappoint integration is excellent with RR...From first look, it just doesn't seem as if S&T is as tightly integrated.

    ITL;

    I don’t use any of the MapPoint or other GPS skins. I do all my route planning using the native S&T menus and functions at home or using a wireless keyboard and transfer the directions file to the carpc. I only programmed the functions into the skin that I felt I would use while actually driving. The only integration available from RR is what you can program from using SendKeys, which is actually quite a bit.

    Here are several screens showing some of the driving functions/directions;
