    GPS not showing up

    Hey folks,
    Im using the latest release of RR with the BMW E36 skin and i love it.

    While upgrading my PC i brought it into the house to test everything and it was all going well. i had just installed FreeDrive and when i pressed the GPS button in RR it came up with a static FD. which is goodbecause my GPS reciever wasnt plugged in.

    So i thought i would test it with the reciever plugged in, but it took a while to get the reciever working again because i lost the driver disk but eventually got in running fine.

    Except when ever i go into RR and press the GPS button i get a menu at the bottom to control music but thats it the rest of the screen is blank. Now when i use FD on its own it works fine.

    and something even stranger is that, if ive got another window open eg Internt/My Computer then whenever i press the GPS button the other indow will resize into that space...

    Here are a couple of screen shots of my settings and what happens:



    If anyone has any ideas that would be great.

    Oh ive tried deleating the RR.Ini and then adding all the settings in again but that didnt fix it.

    Cheers
    Ken

    I don't know for sure but I thought you has to assign a GPSport number. where your's shows zero.

    Try another skin. Your settings look all right.

    No you don't have to set the GPSPort for FreeDrive. In fact, you must not use the same port number for both RR and FD.

    Make sure you don't have any "open" windows with FreeDrive in their title. And yes, try a different skin to verify the settings work. The skin may have a bug or something.

    I think you are using my BMW E36 skin...
    Try to delete the "GPS" definition line in "ExecTBL.ini" in the skin directory (not the one in RR directory).

    "DVD","LOAD;POWERDVD_PLAYER.skin||SENDKEY;{ENT ER}"
    "GPS","LOAD;EXTERNAL_GPS.skin;;C:\Programs file\FreeDrive\FreeDrive.exe;FreeDrive" << DELETE
    "CAMERA","LOAD;CAPTURE.skin;;C:\Programs file\Capture!\Capture!.exe;Capture!"
