    well I just tried the released version that has the pause function and it's sweet... Finally I can hear all the directions since it pauses the music... I skipped the auto-switch feature since I had some problems getting it to go back to the previous screen... but I think the audio directions is good enough most of the times...

    as said earlier, I hope this makes the next release of RR... most ppl are using IG as it seems and it's a damned nice addon for it...

    Are the maps for Europe up to date then ? (Guess you're in Sweden, Yes ?) I'm in the UK, and although IG is really popular in the USA, I'm still using MapMonkey because I have heard that IG has old maps in the EU edition.

The problem is that you STUCK in GPS screen (the one that auto switch to), because RR keep execute "GPS" command. I can not go to any screen. I have to kill RoadRunner and re-start it.

    I try all posible combination I think I did, but I can't reproduce the bug. Basically I use RR's CLOSE command to close iG screen during auto switch to GPS (either by Voice or Guidance I forgot).

    Let me know if any of you run into this problem. Base on the code, I don't see anything that can cause a bug that BIG. aren't all programmers said that?

    Anyway, report all bugs so I can fix them before I send the code to guino by the end of the month for November offical release (if there is one) .

    Lastest download can be found on post 54. Thanks 65coupei6 for hosting the file. RoadRunner_auto-iG-10-20B.zip is the file name of latest release. RoadRunner_auto-iG-10-19B.zip is the one without pause/resume music.

    This is a great addition to RR. Good job guys.

    well I do a lot of driving both for my work and in private but so far I havn't had any big problems with the maps... it's happened once and that was when they were rebuilding the road so they had made a new one while doing that...

    it's real bad that they wont do any IG v3 for europe, I can't see why really, but thats life...
    I stopped using MM long time ago since it crashed a couple of times to much... if CDr's Freedrive 2 comes out I might get the Destinator 6 discs just cuz of that...
    It's nice with a navigation software that works in-line with RR...

    who would like to have dynamically change lastscreenswitchtime value during run time via SETVAR command?
    To me it's just good as is. But if you want to change it base on whatever reason, SETVAR can do that (well, I need to modified couple line of code).
    Let me know.

    That would be neat but not necessary

    But if you could add a little more time to the lastscreenswitchtime=[0-20] that would be good

    At first I thought 10 second would be good, but after a drive over the weekend, it isn't long enought. I am going for a little more flexible [5-30]. Anything less than 5 mean no switch back.

    Run time change need to modified existing skin to take advantage of it. I'll do it depend on feed back from you guys.

    This add-on is not for me as I find pausing music and auto-switching screens very annoying. However, I would love to have a label that displays the next turn like with iGMon. I would also love the GAS plugin to auto-route in iG when you click a station. I would also totally love integration between iG and RREarth (enter a destination in either and it is auto-entered into the other).

    ...just in case you got a ton of free time now that this is done Matrix j/k

    so i just tested this out, and it works great with the expcetion of a few things.
    1). The ding is really really annoying, it pauses the music for the ding then unpauses then it pauses again for the actual voice instructions.
    2). When having visualizer on and it switches to gps when it goes back the visualizer it is "behind" so it needs to be alt+tab'ed to see it again.
    and this kicks *** sooo hard!

    You should be able to avoid #2 by adding a Clip-Reigon to your skin (in the same size/pos as the Vis).
