    There is a screen lock feature. I personally chose to disable it. It is a hidden button in the upper left corner of the screen, talked about in the DFX help file. Find the hidden button using the skin editor and delete it. You might want to put in a password also, so that you can get out of the screen if you accidently hit it again, or don't delete it on every screen that it is needed. The default password is 1234, or you can change it in the screenlock.ini in the Road Runner root folder

    GPS Question

    What GPS program do you guys think works better with this skin? MS Streets & Trips or Iguidance? I am looking into purchasing one of them, and I dont want to blow $100 on something thats not going to look nice in this skin Thanks!

    Cool thanks, I know they both have good reviews as far as overall software by many people from what I was reading on here, but I wasn't sure which one was better suited for this skin, because its by far the best skin and the only one I will use.

    I have streets & trips 2007 (what I started with) Iguidance 4.0 and Igo Myway
    They all have pros and cons, streets is a good program, has a fair POI database and fairly accurate maps, it falls a little short in the turn by turn area but it's major downfall is that it is not really tailored to work on a small screen so it is a big hassle to actually use on a car pc. On a positive note, none of the other nav software I have lets me change an Itinerary print out maps, or view and print drive/time schedules import way points, view Long/Lat at the cursor ect.

    Iguidance has a great POI database good address data base It's turn by turn is better than streets but it still makes me mad at times when it tells me to turn where there isn't a road or makes me miss a turn (its not perfect technology at any rate), and it works great on a car pc screen not to mention that there are features in this skin that help make it easier and more "pc screen" accessible.

    My Way is really a handheld app. so the most resolution I can get is 640x480 (no problem I just made a skin to accommodate it) It's POI data base is better than streets but not as good as Iguidance and its address database is equal to Iguidance (if I cant find an address with one I can usually find it with the other) and the turn by turn in MyWay is superior to all the rest.

    Bottom line is that I wish I had an application that took the best aspects of all these bundled up into one, but since I don't, I achieve a happy medium by relying mostly on Iguidance (tell it makes me mad).

    Agree. iGuidance looks the best but it has made too many mistakes for me to use (and trust). I switched to using S&T 2008 with S&TKeys

    Yeah, I hate having to use my wireless keyboard to do a few things on occasion that I can do via touchscreen on iGuidance but Streets and Trips gets me to where I want to go and I haven't had an issue yet.

    Just my $0.02....

    Thanks for that info, yeah unfortunately there are always tons of programs that we wish we could compile all the good things into one and it never happens, looks like ill go with Iguidance and see how mad it makes me lol

    I have IG 4.0 and DigtalFX 3.0 and I love these two put together! IG took me and my girl all the way to TX from IL and IG was right on the button ever turn! Not to mention that it looks super hot in DFX Skin props goes to John!!!

    Only thing bad I can say about IG is, my girl loves starbucks and there is no where in the POI to search for a starbucks. So while we were on the road going to TX, she had to put in the zip code of the town we were passing at the time in google to locate a starbucks, then we grabbed the address and NAV to it! Little bit of a pain in the butt, but wasn't that big of a deal.

    So yeah IG 4.0 RATE SCALE

    1 being worse
    10 being best

    I give it a 9.5 and only because of the lack of finding starbucks and keeping the little lady happy you know? lol
