    in the external_gps.skin you can change the c (clip) line

    make the h value higher, problem is, if you lose those bottom buttons you will not have a way of exiting that screen
    I am sorry i cant find the c line.

    i have attached the external_gps.skin please help me find and do the necessary changes.

    well what i am looking forward is to just have the GPS programe embeded in the RR with play, stop, next, prev buttons below.

    to exit i can press the menu button at the left corner which we usually have.

    Well the external_gps.skin file you posted does not match the image you posted in the previous post, so it looks like it may be switching to a different .skin file somewhere.

    somethig is strange..

    if i hit gps button 10 times then i have perfect screen with no chipping of the gps window about 4 times. and rest of the 6 times its chopped. so its sometimes there are some times not.

    and BTW i just figured out that i need to change the A lines in the iguidance_wide.skin .
    I did make the h value higher but its not elping me instead the extended part is a black screen.

    This is an awesome post! Thanks for the information.

    I am having an issue though. I've followed the instructions for Garmin Mobile PC

    Latest software patch/update:
    http://www.garmin.com/software/GarminMobilePC_50010.exe
    Embedding Details:
    GPS Path:c:\GarminMobilePC\que.exe
    GPS Window Name: Garmin Mobile PC

    When I click the NAV button Garmin does open but it's not embedded. It just opens as a program in front of RR. Clicking that little X at the top right corner is hard when I want to close it.
    Anyone get this working?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    If it opens but does not embed, it will be down to one of two things.

    1. The window name is incorrect. (use winspector to find correct window name)

    2. The program does not like resizing and won't embed.

    Second post has now been converted to an FAQ post, starting with the above.









    An FAQ post required for an FAQ thread, who'd have thought it?
