    Garmin nRoute

    Hi,

    I am very new and currently setting up a CarPuter for Toyota Harrier. Config

    VIA EPIA MII 12000
    512MB / 40GB notebook HDD
    Lilliput 7" In Dash
    OS WinXP SP1
    Front End: Road Runner
    Skin: Zots.day

    System is still on my desk and testing out the software before it goes to a car accessories shop for installation. I am not that great with wires . Should be putting up the unit this weekend.

    Everything seems is going except for the Radio/TV Card but this can be sorted once I get the right equipment. I cannot get what was recommended here in Malaysia.

    Anyway my greatest challange is trying to embeded nRoute with Road Runner, nimmo was kind enough to give a few pointers on Skinbedded but I find that I am not that knowledgeable to get it working. Actually I am ok with an external GPS which runs full screen. All I need is to have a button that I can click on that will brings out a virtual keyboard when I need to keyin searchable keywords.

    Any ideas.

    If you get the application embedded properly into a skin (there's a FAQ on that), you can use the APPOSK command to type stuff into it. That doesn't work for everything though. If you don't find that is suficient, there's a free application called virtualkeyboard (in the VOICES subforum) that you can run before running RR and will display an OSK that should allow you to type into anything you want.

    You're from Malaysia too?

    I use a freeware app called CMS virtual keyboard to enter searches into nRoute
