    I like the idea of a central point to get all the info. Maybe then, we could use this program in other countries other than the US.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    I have the same problem as Red gti. When i try to open it in road runner it opens up internet explore in the window. And yes all my windows are close before starting road runner.

    Well I tried it today and after 20 minutes tweaking playing and optimizing (stuff you gotta do to run full time internet on a slow processor), I got it to work well. Hell, this works better than well, it works great. Saved me over 2 dollars and change just on one fillup.

    Some comments. Since I hate to go modifying skins to test embedded apps other than GPS, I created a "LAUNCH" subfolder for GPSGas and run it from my external applications screen. This way I dont have to modify the exectbl.ini and it works the same regarless of the current skin. I installed 0.6.5 to my C:\Program Files\Road Runner\LAUNCH\GPSGas directory; renamed the exe to GPSGas.exe and included the attached files in the directory. The first is the ini:

    [General]
    PATH = C:\Program Files\Road Runner\LAUNCH\GPSGas\GpsGas.exe
    TryEmbeddedTimeOut = 25
    WindowSearchString=GPS Gasoline

    And the second is a generic gas pump ripped from GPSGasOnline.

    Because the program seems to check for GPS and an internet connection first, I had to extend the wait time prior to embedding timeout, the faster your processor/Internet connection the lower that number can be. 5 is the norm.

    Requests:
    1) Save the last GPS coords searched and use those upon program start. That way if you run the program before the GPS has a lock it will generate info based on your last known location. For me this means I can run the program with the tablet in the house (not connected to the GPS, but DSL internet connection), get the best prices quickly and then program the nav when I get it in the car.
    2) Change the way the addresses are displayed on-screen so the text is selectable, i.e., once I decide which station I want to go to, it would be nice if I could double click on the city name, CTRL-C to copy it, switch to navigate and CTRL-V to paste; repeating for street and number and start routing. Right now I have to memorize the address, then switch to nav and type it all in.
    3) The "Last Updated..." line overlaps the "Closest Zip..." when embedded. A smaller fontwould fix this or just move it down to just above the Gas station Titles.
    4) The bright white background is fine for daytime, but blinding at night. Need to access RR's day/night settings or GPS time and change to night mode after sunset.

    Outstanding work

    Now if we could just get Guino to incorporate your code for determining the zip based on GPS coordinate, we could have weather screens based on current location rather than fixed in RR.ini.

    red i got it to work do this

    You need to install MSCOMM32.OCX (search google for download). (http://www.yes-tele.com/mscomm.ZIP)

    Download, stick it in windows/system32, and register by Run: regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\mscomm32.ocx

    Double click on the launch button for the gpsgas(not the road runner)
    If you are missing one more file, then just go on google and get it and follow the same step as above.

    Not any apps fault at all, just missing some regular window files because windows is over tweak.
