    OK, I sped this thing up to damn near instant. It went from about 20 lines of code down to TWO.
    No find feature, doesnt need it.
    No voice features, NOT NEEDED either.
    simple send key that is all. BUT FAST
    Jimmy Johns Fast..
    There is probably about a .05 sec delay from button press to key typed in text box.
    RR doesnt respond to button presses that fast so I dont think this script being any more speedier matters.
    Plus it will work with any Front end that can run an external commandline program.
    Download from first post.

    The big difference here was how the command was handled.
    before the program did mulitple things before it would send a command.

    First it would Check if RR was running - who cares if it is,
    Next check for garmin if it is running - Not necessary because if it wasnt you wouldnt use this,
    Next Activate the garmin window - Obsolete idea for send key usage. Instead of using a send function I used controlsend which sends the key directly to garmin no matter if it is active or not.
    But the biggest improvement was taking out all the mumbling in between with the find command. I had a command line flag that would operate a mouseclick in to the text box. No longer necessary with the control send command. If you loose focus from the text box simply get focus again by touching it. You would have to do this if using a normal keyboard or even a regular OSK. FIND COMMAND - garbaged

    Anyway give this a shot and tell me what you think. It is definitely a lot faster.

    the new fast version is just that. A lot more like what you'd expect from an OSK.

    Great collaboration on this - ya'll are geniuses!

    Leave it to the RR experts - what ever it is won't be a problem for long!

    Now let us have some skin (havic V3, Blades-Edge, DFX 4.x) RELEASE!

    Blades-Edge is on the edge of finished. Of course everytime I turn around I think of something cool and new to do with it. But I like to give it tons of testing to make sure I have something good before I can say it is done. As of now, I only have a few more screens to make and it will be ready for a first release.

    Hi All,

    I have been following this closely, as much as possible.

    I have been trying my self to get gmpc to work with the std RR osk in BMV2.

    I started by using the External GPS skin and adding a button calling "APPSOK".

    try not to shoot me down but I am very new at this, thank you to ThunderStick, this is what I found is working for me, any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    My first objective was to clear out the text box when opening the OSK.
    Then to get the backspace to work;

    Added in the External.skin
    B03,635,0,45,54,"GMPCTYPE",@GMPCTYPE@

    In the OSK.skin
    K12,709,191,088,078,001,008,008,"MYBS||BACKSPACE", "Backspace"

    In the Exectbl.ini
    "GMPCType","ACTIVATE;Garmin Mobile PC||SENDKEY;{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACK SPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE} {BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKS PACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{ BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}{BACKSPACE}||APPOSK"

    "MYBS","RUN;C:\Program Files\RoadRunner\skins\BMV2\Scripts\garminsendkey. exe|{BS}"

    Thank you all again.
    Tyrone

    I Read these instructions:

    "OK here it is the moment we have all been waiting for.
    THE GARMIN MOBILE PC OSK
    It works with command line input

    To send the character "K" to Garmin the command line would be
    GarminSendKey.exe K

    It will send any "autoit compatible" send key command to garmin.

    For Road Runner Create a buttons command as follows

    "RUN;$SKINPATH$scripts\garminsendkey.exe|1"
    -This will send 1 to the text box"

    Sorry for sounding noob, but where would this go.

    I'm not familiar with sendkey commands, or where to create buttons for RR. After a quick search, I realize what they do, and how they work, but I'm still unclear whether this is a skin.ini, exec, or ?, mod......

    The skin I'm using now "Teknik V.2" worked nearly perfect for radio, music, and video right from the get-go. I messed around a bit to get GMPC to work, and considering my inexperience, I'm surprised I got that to work.

    Simply put, how did you incorporate this into your skin? Not looking for someone to hold my hand, just need to get pointed in the general direction.

    In te zip file for the Garmin Send Key script there is an HTML file called instructions. This will really help alot.
    You will also have to create an OVERLAY skin using the elcosmenu overlay plugin. This will allow you to create a skin that will display on top of Garmin. This is how the OSK is being created.
    THis really is not Newbie territory but if you want to dive right in to the mess we call RR, then feel free to give this a shot as well.
    Good luck hope this clears up some of your answers.
