    I'm using it for a few days in my car and its working fine, decided to share with the community. Will welcome all suggestions, requests and comments.

    GPS Gas takes your lon. and lat. from GPS Receiver and calculates to the nearest zip code based on that data (or you can input your zip code manually by clicking on “Postal Code label”). Using zip code it gets list of the gas stations with cheapest gas (Unleaded, Plus, Premium and Diesel) prices for that area from http://autos.msn.com/ website (internet connection required).

    Current Functionality
    1. Shows prices for Unleaded, Plus, Premium as Diesel (if available)
    2. Displays surface distance to each gas station (GPS Receiver must be connected).
    3. Use GPS Receiver or/and enter Zip code manually
    4. Can display up to 12 gas stations (will support up to 30 or unlimited if we decide to use scrollable list)
    6. Will suport other countries if i'll find where (website) to get data.
    7. A lot faster than using plugin.

    Future functionality
    Display location of the gas station on the map and calculate route.


    Installation Instructions
    1. Unzip file
    2. Backup (rename) you esisting rr.exe
    3. Drop new rr.exe and "Gas" folder in the root of RoarRunner.
    4. Copy content of the "skin" folder to your skin folder.
    5. Add button with the "GPSGAS" command to any of your RR skins.




    Just a quick skin for BMV2.



    or enter Zip code manually




    Download it Here

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    If anyone lives in other countries than USA and knows the websites addresses to get best gas prices in their countries, don’t be shy and please sent me the links. I will make it work!

    Chuck - is this dloadable yet. You and LS simply take skin coding to the extreme it and exploit so much - it takes me forever to understand some of the inner workings .... and I mean this in a good way. I find out so much about skinning power when looking at your skins.

    Let me know when this may be posted - I would like to see about using what you mention.

    Thanks kindly...

    Button to set address – on each station
    "SETVAR;GPSGASADD;1"
    "SETVAR;GPSGASADD;2"

    Button to set label back to trackname – I hit clear
    "SETVAR;GPSGASADD;0"

    Label in gps screen – where the trackname is
    "BYVAR;GPSGASADD;TRACKNAME<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_0_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_1_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_2_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_3_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_4_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_5_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_6_ADDRESS<<GAS_7_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_8_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_9_ADDRESS<<GAS_10_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_11_ADDRESS<<=Gas Station - ||GAS_12_ADDRESS","scroll-center"

    Same here - and LostReception your wizard hung - but did everything manual and still no luck with your new code either, I spent an hour on yours hoping to see the new work but the Wizard Crashed - then did manual but it does nothing at all currently. I see no .exe for yours, just the .dll so not sure if its even being called.

    Here with the NativeGPSGAS I am non gps so just waiting for the zip dialogue.

    Did not mean to cross confuse here but love both attempts - maybe somebody does not want me to buy gas ,

    Thx guys ...

    It is NOT a plugin and does not have a name. When it will be included in the official RR release it will become a part of RoadRunner. However, I called "GPS Gas price Finder" not GPSGAS. I can change the skin name from GPSGAS.skin to GASPRICEFINDER.skin if you wish. The labels code on the skin starting with “gas_” not gpsgas.

    1. This thread is not for "LostReception" GPSGAS.

    2. Click on the "Postal Code" on the screen and enter your zip code.
