    I want this modification

    Thanks.
    I did that with Gimp. If you look closely, you'll see that the second image is stretched slightly so the square buttons are elongated vertically.

    I've yet to install this skin...because I've yet to have time to work on my car. Or even drive for that matter

    I've think that you modified some code in skin, and this is result...

    No, he modified the screen cap that I took. The only way to starch Garmin is to use the overlay plugin and make a skin file for it. The overlay plugin does not support variables nor the way this skin is coded using the included file (INC). You will have to make a custom skin file for that function. I decided to not use the that much expect for the keyboard, because I found it problematic at times.

    I'm not a skinning expert, but is that how the CarWings skin does it?
    It works pretty good with that, never had an issue. I may try copying it's functionality into a modified Garmin skin for Elite Wings...but that would require spare time.

    Top Notch Job Suavecito!

    Just tried it out on my carPC and was quite impressed. I even shot some video of it in action.

    Pros: Very nice looking / attractive interface. Feature rich, highly customizable, and all functions and features worked well in testing. Stable. Everything works "out of the box"

    Cons: Slow. Menu switching is surprisingly laggy on Atom board, which is strange because I am running OS/RR/Skins on a high end SLC type SSD. I don't like that the volume pop up renders all other buttons useless until it goes away.

    Other thoughts: Running Shock v7 on the same hardware the menu switching is lightning fast. I suppose the lag comes in the dynamic menu code, which is a completely awesome feature at the expense of some speed. Overall most users would probably not notice the lag much while driving. I'm just obsessive compulsive

    Just my 2 cents, again awesome work and thank you for sharing!!!!

    The main reason that the current Elite Wing skin does not work like the Carwings has to do with the way they are coded.
    Carwings is simple and uses four images to create the skin overlay for its Garmin skin.
    Elite Wings in dependent on variables and the Overlay plugin does not support any variables or include (INC) file to be loaded.
    The variables are used to call other files with the skin directory in order to control the skin functions.
    An example is if you are listing to a mp3 file, you will see that the player control bar will change to the audio player. This is something that the Overlay plugin can do currently.



    HERE IS A BRAKE DOWN BETWEEN CARWINGS AND ELITE WINGS

    CARWINGS GARMIN SKIN BRAKE DOWN:

    END

    The lag more than likely has to do with the unloading of the screen each time you exit each screen. RR also has to re-render each screen to make sure it loads the correct player control buttons and theme. It is also building the skin in layers and calling individual images and INC file. Typically most skins are made up of four big images, the EMPTY, OFF, ON AND DOWN that are stated in the skin header.

    As for the volume control, I know that disables the other buttons. I felt that it was the best way to get more for real-estate for the screen. Adding the volume control would have taking up about 270 pixels.

    I will be playing around with the skin some and try optimize it better. I am currently running a Atom board also.
