    When starting Iguidance, sometimes desktop show instead

    It seems that when i start Iguidance through rr it sometimes shows the rr skin bar at the top and instead of the iguidance screen showing up it just shows the desktop. then sometimes if i press the back button and open the X button and then open the gps back up it works again. its wierd.

    Anyone ever run into this issue before.

    When you try to open the file it asks you if you want to search the internet for a program to open it with or if you want to choose a program from a list right? Choose a program from the list and choose Wordpad but first go to the bottom and UNCHECK the box that says you want to use the same application every time. Then click OK and it'll open as a text file.

    Now I have a question. In my external_gps.skin file I have this line:
    C01,15,60,655,445
    and in my external_gps_small.skin file I have this line:
    C01,235,62,547,373
    and those are the only lines in any of the GPS skin files that start with a C. So just put a / before those lines? Can you explain why? I'm a software developer but I don't get why it would matter for the letter C. Thanks!

    Okay here you go. If you do some search regarding to iGuidance native in RoadRunner thread, you found the answer already.
    C in RR skin definition mean clip area. RR will cut that area to show the desktop. Also, clip area is the same area as Application area (A).
    Now in RR.ini if your gps is iGuidance and you set iGnative=true, iGuidance will became a child windows of RR. And when RR clips that area, it cut out the application as well (because iG is part of RR).
    If you set iGnative=false, iG isn't part of RR and thus iG isnt' affect when RR clip that area.
    Now you ask what the different between setting iGnative = true/false.
    True: smoother transaction between GPS screen and other screen. Look better.
    False: flicker when switching from GPS screen to other screen (menu, music...). Clip area help eliminate/reduce the flicker. So, with clip area, the screen flick less or none, but you see the desktop during the transaction.
    The option is yours.

    You don't need a reference to ignative, I believe it's not by default or vice versa.

    So

    Are you having any problems with iGuidance , if so what?

    I posted it last year, the thread is still here somewhere. Not to hijack the thread, but with me I boot my computer (which I don't do often) and it loads XP. I don't have it set to boot into Roadrunner yet, so I then load Roadrunner and everything starts perfect, I go into music and it all works. Then I go into the navigation screen (small navigation screen) and it loads the iGuidance warning about not using it while driving even though I piped nowarning to the exe file when loading it. But whatever, so I touch OK and it loads my desktop in the window for the GPS and loads the iGuidance window externally outside and on top of Roadrunner. Just like if I loaded iGuidance on my own. So I close that window and I'm left with my desktop showing in the little window which should have the GPS in it. Then I click for the full screen GPS window and it works perfect. And when I move back to the small window it works perfect. Everything is fine after that, I turn off the car, it hibernates, turn on the car, it comes back, everything works still. But as soon as I reboot, I have to do it all again. I'll look for my original screenshots I posted in another thread.

    Here they are. So when I load the navigation screen, I get the warning like this. I've since upgraded to iGuidance 3 so it's a different warning box but you get the idea.


    Then it loads the actual iGuidance window inside Roadrunner as you can see here. I have to drag the window over far enough to click the X to close it.


    Then I switch to the full screen mode and it works perfect.
    <no picture for this>

    Then I switch back to the small GPS screen and it still works perfect. And will will continue to work perfect until I reboot.

    Put "/,(space)" (without quotes) in front of the "C" lines and add ignative=true to rr.ini..It'll work perfect everytime..
