    Route within Streets & Trips

    Quote Originally Posted by Driven01 View Post
    Ok, the very last thing and I'll leave ya alone. Really. Ran into an oddity and am hoping one of you guys has an answer. I have everything running in the StreetsTrips.skin as it should with S&T 2011 under Win 7. All of the buttons are working and RR doesn't load a 2nd instance when changing from one screen and back again. Here's the odd part...

    When S&T loads up, it loads with an empty route. If I create a route within the embedded screen all is well. Everything works as it should.

    If I choose a pre-arranged route from the file menu within the embedded screen and then hit any of the buttons, RR Loses focus on the embedded window and then nothing works right after that. If I leave the Streets screen and then hit the button to go back to it, RR launches a new instance of S&T. It's like I'm back at square one if I use a pre-arranged route. Weird huh? Ideas anyone?
    The problem is the way streets & trips labels the screen. The 'normal' name is Map - ... When you create a route, it has the name route name - ...

    To get around this, I create the route and save it. Create a folder with the same name and copy the route into it. I then rename it 'Map'. Unfortunately, this doesn't work on the carputer itself. I usually create my routes on a separate computer and then load them onto my carputer.

    This is a limit of streets and trips and not the carputer idea.

    Yes, but be sure you install Riderunner in Profile mode under Win7.

    @dnr250 - Thanks, but I got it figured out. S&T 2011 will now embed ANY Route I choose (or create on the fly) without issue. It mostly had to do with what information RR looks for to identify the embedded application window. Sometimes too much info can be a bad thing.

    See post 1721. There are clues in there.

    The same issue exists for ALL versions of S&T as well as other apps from time to time.

    So this error is only unique to me??
    I can not answer in coming calls while driving as seen in the video the phone buttons flashes on and off screen and only appear after the caller hangs up!
