    MapPoint
    NOTE: Mappoint support is available built-in RR. There's no need to embed it as long as you use a skin which supports mappoint for GPS. Otherwise, this information below can be used for launching it as a standard application (NOT recommended).

    Map Point 2009 Europe Edition
    GPs Path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft MapPoint Europe 2009\MapPoint.exe
    GPS Window Name: Map - Microsoft MapPoint Europe

    Streets & Trips
    Product Home Page:
    http://www.microsoft.com/streets/Pro...s.aspx?pid=004
    Embedding Details:
    GPS Path:C:\Program Files\Microsoft Streets and Trips\Streets.exe
    GPS Window Name: Map - Microsoft Streets & Trips
    NOTE: Some version use the window title of: (The AND spelled out) Map - Microsoft Streets and Trips

    Unofficial GPS Programs

    I Go 8
    Read/Get iGo MySize HERE, then use:
    GPS Path=C:\GPS\iGO 8\iGO-MySize.exe|-width=800 -height=412
    GPS Window Name=iGO8
    (Adjust the width/height according to your skin)

    Tom Tom 5/6
    This can only be used using a Windows CE emulator which can be quite complex and/or slow.

    Use Blue ZX3 RRConfig (As including in the latest RR releases)

    F.a.q.

    F.A.Q. on the above FAQ.


    Q. When I click the NAV button <your Navigation program> does open but it's not embedded. It just opens as a program in front of RR.

    A.
    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.




    Q. I've finally got it embedded and working, however now it's not receiving any satellite signal. (I think this is because RR is intercepting it from the com port)

    A
    . Either use a com port splitter or don't enter a value for GPS port in RRConfig.

    Great idea. It should be expanded to all apps (not just GPS) like for instance the "sexy attached Analyzer" that's difficult to embed without just the right window name (which i don't remember right now).

    hha meddler beat me to the punch I was watching the thread to see more items added before making it a sticky. I edited the title of the thread, as it is now a sticky, and did not need the )May want to make a sticky) in the title.

    I also edited the post to include a link to iGuidance, as well as the price.
