    Jesus. I cant do it. I downloaded the RR SDK and looked at the example code. The VB.Net wouldn't convert into vbexpress .net (like, whats the diff, right) becuase certain things weren't supported. VB6 would convert because modcom.vb wasn't there. Which is fine becuase I didnt really want to build program hooks into RR, instead I wanted to allow RR to hook into commtest2, with standard GPS buttons and commands. You know, Zoom in, Zoom out, Create POI, Create Route, ect. If I went the other way I would probably build a skin for commtest2 and I would perfer other people to build there own custom generic Navigation skin. Dont get me wrong. RR is wonderful. I just have no experience with skins, API's or OLE. If its going to be skinned it will need to be peeked or spyed into and the window names and button names would need to be scraped into RR. But for now, I'm giving up on RR. I'll stay with what I have.

    Somebody converted the SDK example into .Net you should have a look at the sources again. modCom is vital to getting the SDK to work since its where the code to send/receive data to/from RR lies.

    If you just want to send data/commands to RR, you can simply use Exec.EXE.. if you want to RECEIVE data from RR, then you'd need to use the SDK.. Unfortunately all the examples I have made are in VB6 (because for as much as I hate it, I have .NET twice as much).. If you really want it, I can create a COM/ActiveX Component (a .OCX) that one could include in their project to piggyback into RR and receive skin commands and provide label codes etc.. this would be pretty much what the Extension plugin support already is, except that it would be usable from any language that supports ActiveX objects.

    For now this is just in a developing stage but I already have a first result, please take a look.

    Remarks are welcome...

    PS - You can find inside the zip the .kmz sample file (just double-click on it if you already have Google Earth installed).
