    RR and FD auto-start?

    I have set RoadRunner to auto-start by putting the RoadRunner shortcut into the startup folder. Is it possible to get FreeDrive to autolaunch within RoadRunner?
    I've read about the hidden FreeDrive.exe but I'm not quite sure how to implement it.

    Cheers,

    Hi dave,

    I have just finished my carpc-setup,
    and I noticed that there is a FreeDrive.exe and a FreeDrivehidden.exe in the freedrive main-folder.
    I've jut put the hidden one in my startuplist, next to roadrunner.
    Now my GPS receiver intantly connects when I boot up, and when I tap GPS in RR it'll be on my screen within a sec..

    Oops..
    Have you tried reinstalling FD/Destinator?
    When I uninstalled mapmonkey, when FD was already installed, I got that error too..
    Maybe it also depents on what skin you use..Is the commandline for the GPS menu correct?
    I'm using the Triton skin, and I have set the GPS option in RR to external GPS.
    Freedrive version is Preview 1.01 (Update 1)..
