    To my knowedge, it shouldn't matter weather the GPS app is running or not, I believe that this function is completely handled by RR.

    I've been using this for awhile and works good, execpt that I recently had the same prob that your having, with mine being in the morning and finally changing to daygamma just as I would pull into work parking lot...tiss be a bit too late...

    I think that I prob used the standard config and it ended up changing a setting somewhere...

    I am planning on making my own config that will contain ALL these great features, so that when I do deciede to use it, I won't loose any of my settings...

    yeah its a shame the the GPS bit works
    i tried to get the guy who wrote this config to make it so it remeber the last GPS number when u shut down and can use that when it starts up.

    that why i just use it based on time

    The whole thing about this is that it was SO difficult to pull together the information on this alternate config and it's workings.
    It was like a detective novel trying to find out details, and it was mainly due to you djmickyg that I was finally able to do it.
    It's really surprising a feature that is so frequently sought after in posts by people with Day/Night skins isn't more widely known. Perhaps a FAQ on this would be helpful ?

    PS: I always hibernate in my MapMonkey screen, that way when I come out if it is time to change skins, it does.

    @Blue Z3
    If you do re-vamp this config, PLEASE post it.

    Glad to help. I've had this config just sitting in my folders for year

    I wonder how many other secret settings there are in RR that we still have to learn about?

    Theres prob quite a few that only a few select know about b/c their the ones that req it and it was never intergrated into the config, just a big shame that any user can't get to or even know about all supported features...

    I think that even Guino, has a hard time remembering....lol

    @Blue Z3 If you do re-vamp this config, PLEASE post it.
    I will, I have started on it...not sure as far as time frame goes when it will be posted.

    Side note: I'm trying to debate which interface I/we like better, skippy's or the std one, as far as the seperation of different sections?

    Actually there is one other config that was made and I like that setup the best actually...

    You could try the Gamma offset to try to pull your skin switch into the right timezone, it works in (+) & (-).
    Although, once I ran Skippy's config and it put all the entries into RR.ini, I am now getting my skin switches at a more appropriate time.
