    I am sure you are focused on stability - then add as you mentioned but those items to me would be key. The one item I could not get working was the Update Tag -- so I know when it refreshed and if it did.

    Nice work - will look for more but "thanks" .... Toss in a NativeMovieTimes in your spare time ;-)

    Mileage tags already exist. Check the skin commands.txt file
    gas_#_distance (# from 0 to 11) -show surface distance between current GPS coordinate to gas station GPS coordinate
    To display last refresh date an tile create label with “gasfiledate” code. (Also in the skin commands.txt)
    gasfiledate -show date and time of last refresh
    I’ll add the sorting.

    Chuck -

    Ok that indeed does help me better understand what you had mentioned - this is indeed nice... I see u are using IG2, not sure if this would work with IG3 but assume so with minor mods - but nice idea...

    Chuck - are you getting any data out of the Distance Tag? I still have an issue since the price is the key sort item the stations it shows on the page are usually up to a few miles away.

    Thanks

    So I just go down the list and match the station name and distance and chances are that’s the one.

    For the record - its working flawless, and damn fast.... I am doing local testing but used my GPS in-house and plan to make a roadtrip and see the
    auto-adjusts.

    I as well look forward to the RR update so I don't have to give up the IGnative pieces being worked in.

    Very very fast -

    Thanks
