    RR and destinator 7

    Hi all,

    I have searched all the forums for an answer to my question but cant seem to find one. When i load my gps software through a skin (this happens no matter what skin i use) it doesnt display the whole screen, in otherds the gps screen with the map is not centred properly in RR. How can i fix this?

    My first suggestion s is that you haven't got the window name correct so it doesn't get 'grabbed' and attached.

    Got any pics?

    plus what is in your RRconfig for GPS settings.

    Destinator 7 doesn't embed properly in anything !
    It uses two different window titles for the GPS screen and the Menu screen. It needs a wrapper utility writing for it before it's going to be truly useful as an embeded app in a Front End.
    Until then the best that can be achieved is to run as a separate single application .....possibly full screen.

    Thought so...

    Is it possible to add the other window name (ie the actual map window) into roadrunner? Can you still use RR to initiate destinator 7 and go switch back to RR?

    As far as I am aware RR will only handle one window title at present....hence the need to wrap them both into a form that RR can handle.
    D7 opens with Menu.......so doesn't sound possible I'm afraid.
    If D7 functioned correctly in RR or whatever FE, then I think a lot of people would use it.
    Especially the Guys my side of the Pond that don't have an up to date iGuidance to use.

    Okay, i have just got D7 to work in RR. I need to experiment a little with trying to shrink the D7 window but at least i can use D7 in RR now with all its functionality. Will post any updates / solutions to this.

    It doesn't sound like D7 is embeded though, just running separately. Do you have acess to the media controls on the D7 screen ?

    I have access to the media controls the screen crashes on me sometimes though. Need to sort out some bugs as i get d7 to go full screen with the media controls and it freezes and crashes on me.
