    RRunner/iGuidance cant find COM port?

    I have installed both iGuidance and Microsoft Mappoint. I setup the configuration to prompt a menu when selecting GPS. I set iGuidance up in the "external" field, and entered the COM port.

    Mappoint works fine. But iGuidance seems experience 2 issues. 1.) detecting the gps and 2.) "skinning"? the application. Below are details:

    1.)When I click EXTERNAL from the GPS menu, the software can not find the gps. It does not help if I click on tools-->gps-->com port. I have to quit roadrunner COMPLETELY in order for iGuidance to operate, then I can launch Roadrunner (iGuidance will be in the background). If I then open iGuidance from within RoadRunner, a new instance of iGuidance will open, but will have the said GPS error.

    2.) When launching iGuidance, a small window appears, almost too small to be functional. I can however resize this manually. I like the way RoadRunner opens MapPoint, and I'm wondering if it can open iGuidance in the same manner?

    Thanks for anyone's help with this!

    In oder for you to run Road Runner and iGuidance you need a com port splitterlike XPort3. Mappoint is native in road runner and needs only one com port. when you run iGuidace and road runner you need 2 com ports for it to work.
