    One other way i was thinking is a simple autoit/vb program to edit the RR.ini that references the GPS before "GPS" is called in RR:

    RR.ini
    Code:
    [GPS]
    gpsmode=2
    mapmonkeypath=Click here to set path
    
    overspeed=55
    gpsport=9
    mappointmap=1
    mapcountry=United States
    mapcity=gpspath=C:\Program Files\Navigator7\PC_Navigator\PC_Navigator.exe
    gpsname=Navigator
    mapautozoom=true
    isunits=true
    usegpsserv=false
    gasfinderautorefresh=false

    No need an external plugin.

    Use SETVAR/SAVETOINI to change $gpsmode$, $gpspath$, & $gpsname$.

    EDIT: Upon testing, this won't work on-the-fly if you use the "GPS" command since they are initialized by RR at startup.

    in Exectbl.ini

    "GPS","$newGPS$"

    in your skins skin.ini

    newGPS=<path to a GPS>

    the have the button code in your GPS menu skin change the variable newGPS to the path of the respective GPS program

    do one for each GPS you may wish to use.

    I tried that, but it didn't work.

    My suggestion was to use SETVAR/SAVETOINI to change rr.ini variables at runtime, per jone's idea, but the drawback of that was that those changes wouldn't take affect until RR is restarted and all the rr.ini variables re-initialized.

    Because gpspath/gpsname is initialized at start of RR, "GPS," by default, will be tied to rr.ini gpspath/gpsname values at startup, not runtime, despite changing it via SETVAR/SAVETOINI.

    For the "GPS" command to be dynamic while RR is running, "GPS" will have to be changed via ExecTBL.ini to:
    Code:
    "GPS","LOAD;<gps_skin_filename>.skin;RUN;$gpspath$;$gpsname$"
    
    
    .

    Cant see anything in the skincommands but does RR support a command that closes & restarts it like blues RRconfig does from within a skin?

    Thanks, it was in there didnt use that in the search tho!

    Have managed to use
    "SAVETOINI;GPSPATH;C:\GPS\PCN.EXE||SAVETOINI;GPSNA ME;PC Navigator"
    That writes direct to the RR.ini GPS setting

    Is it possible to read the same contents of RR.ini? ie the GPSPATH and GPSNAME sections to display as a label in RR?

    All settings in the rr.ini file are avail as a variable to be used/displayed, and some can also be changed at anytime while rr is running(AKA "At Runtime")
