    So overwhelmed with iguidance and RR right now *simplistique skin*

    hey everyone, I'm looking for some help. I've searched the mp3car forums for the past week and tried everything to my knowledge but I just can't get iguidance to work in road runner. Here is where I'm at so far. I've got iguidance v3 and I'm running the UMPC version. I've got the lastest road runner version and I'm using the simplistique skin. I've tried making changes to EXTERNAL_GPS.skin, menu.skin, everything. I've got the gps path and window name correct in RRconfig. What am I missing? I've read alittle on skin bedder, but I just can't figure out how to run iguidance in the simplistique skin. If I run the BMV2 skin that comes with the RR download, it launches iguidance, but in its own window. TIA guys. I've been a long time lurker at this site, figured i'd start posting

    BINGO! got it working. My next question on this topic. When ever I hit a navigation button in roadrunner, my windows bar appears at the bottom of the screen showing my current running programs. If i hit Road Runner, it goes back to full screen, but the second it does something with iguidance, it comes back. I don't mind it THAT much, but was wondering if there was a way to make this go away?

    Im having a little trouble with simplistique and iguidance 3.0, too (though I dont think it's related to the skin). When I hit the gps button, iguidance doesn't start at all. I have the same exact settings on my desktop, and its working fine there. I dont really have any idea why it's not opening up on the carputer

    Loading IGuidance in the Simplistique skin

    Here is the code I have on my menu button in Simplistique's skin to launch IG. It works perfectly here:
    B06,400,217,380,84,"LOAD;IGUIDANCE.skin;iGuidance; C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidanceUMPC.exe;iGuidance",

    That was the original unaltered skin, as I just tried it and it works fine.

    If you want to remove the borders and menu bar from IG download IGLaunch and use the folloowing line instead:
    B06,400,217,380,84,"LOAD;IGUIDANCE.skin;iGLaunch;C :\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGLaunch.exe;iGLaunch",

    You would also need to change the settings in RR config to poin to iGLaunch instead of dirrectly to IG, as well as the window tile to "iGLaunch"

    Hope this helps out...

    NOTE: The coordinates at the beginning of the above lines will only work with the Simplistique skin. If you use this code on another skin, just replace the rest of the line after the last "," (Coma)

    Easy fix for this,
    right click the taskbar in the solid blue portion. click on properties. Then uncheck where it says "Keep the taskbar on top of other windows".
    Problem solved.

    JohnWPB - I was able to get iGuidance to embed using the strings you gave with one hiccup. When I embed iGuidance directly, I can use the Simplistque skins to send commands (like Mute). When I embed iGuidance using iGLaunch using the string you provided, the skin buttons don't work. If I use the following line in menu.skin:

    B06,400,217,380,84,"LOAD;IGUIDANCE.skin;iGLaunch;C :\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGLaunch.exe;!TForm1,!iGLaunc h",""

    the skin commands work sporadically. My question is do, you know how to both embed iGuidance (so the status and menu bars are hidden) and pass the skin commands at the same time? Thanks in advance.
