    After lots of setting up of the skin on my desktop PC I finally put it in the car today.

    It is superb I have found. Just a few minor observations.

    1. I use Freedrive and for the most part it works well. One thing I that do find annoying is that when in GPS mode the name of the current song doesn't appear on the top of the screen, just these these two numbers which I have no idea what they do.

    2. When a song is playing and I am on the main screen, sometimes the name of the song scrolls along the top, other times is doesn't. Why is that?

    3. When in the audio player the speedo doesn't work. I think thats probably my fault. How can I get it working?

    I tested this skin side-by-side with the MC2.0 skin and just found the LS skin easier to use while driving, but the MC2.0 was certainly faster.

    Great work!!

    1. those two number are number of satalites and someting else, cant remember (i use IG). But i dont think you will ever see song title info on the gps screen in my skins, i just dont think its needed info while trying to navigate.

    2. the song title only scroll when the title dosent fit completly in the space provided. So if the song title is short, it wont scroll.

    3. to get the speedo to work, in RRConfig.exe, under GPS, you have to set GPS Mode=Mappoint (even though you will not use mappoint), this basicly turns on the native gps features of RR and it will attempt to read data directly from your GPS device. Set the GPS Port to your gps device.
    NOTE: Since you cant have multiple gps software connecting to the same port number you will need a port splitter, that will give you extra ports that gps data is available on. Do a search for XPORT and use that. After you successfully have 2 ports with gps data pick one for RR and use the other for Freedrive.


    as far as speed goes, i never noticed any difference with my skin and any other skin. I would of thought MC2.0 would of been a tad bit slower because of the heavy use of flash. But i do notice a difference in speed if you remove the logo clock on the main menu, but this is flash also.
    Where are you seeing a slow down? Any specific screens or the whole skin overall.
    One thing i did do out of lazyness on the version of the skin im working on now, is make the ON and DOWN images the same file, so it should be lighter on memory.

    Thanks for the replay

    1. OH PLEASE! It is so useful to know the current MP3 track playing because I have lots of MP3 which I have never heard before so its nice to just know what its called (in case I like it and want to add it to playlist). Also if I am changing tracks using the next/previous buttons on the bottom of the GPS skin it would be nice to see the track name change. Come one please think about it.... Looks nicer too. You could have the speed being shown actually on the Map and then move the no of sats counter to the place where the speed is shown now and put the track title at the top.

    2. Understand now.

    3. FIXED.

    Regarding speed the MC2.0 skin is definetely faster on my Car PC. I'm not saying yours is slow at all (but running on a Mobile Athlon 2400+/1Gb Ram I wouldn't expect it to be! Just on less powerful Car PC's such as my friends it takes about 2 - 3 secs for the screen to change once something has been selected from the main menu. Its only the main menus that seem abit slow - the rest of the skin is fine. I am being hypercritical here so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Overall VERY pleased with the skin and can't wait for the new version.

    1. ok, maybe. i need to update the freedrive skin anyway, i was never really happy with it. it was a rush job

    as for speed, i see the 2 sec delay on the main menu also when im in my car, but only in my car. Im not sure why and im not totaly convienced it related to the speed of the machine. My carputer is a bit beefy as far as carputers go, 2.x cpu, 1gb ram, nvidia 4600 vid card. It didnt allways have the 2sec delay either, so im not sure what the problem is.

    I get the 2 sec delay when changing from the main screen to the secondary screen, but I just give it a second or two to change and live with it.

    EPIA 10000 with 512 DDR 40 gig 5400 laptop hard drive, Nlited XP install, iGuidance for GPS, etc.

    I should remove the Flash Clock and see if it speeds things up a bit???

    I am waiting for the next version with baited breath as well! Keep up the excellent work. Any idea on the .psd's as well? I need to modify the skin a bit from the custom one that you made me.

    Thanks for such an elegant skin!

    Beautiful work liquid_smoke! I'm just getting everything set up and it's working great thus far.

    I haven't read up on using SKINbedder yet, so I haven't got the GPS going.

    My current GPS software is Garmin's free nRoute, but I'm looking for a new one. Will your skin still "work best" with iGuidance in the new release? If so I think that's the one I'll be going with.

    Cheers!

    yup, and for the forseable future and as long as i use IG, which ever comes first

    Status Update:

    I had planned on a Turkeyday release (too busy) as pretty much everything is done minus a few odds and ends, just need to take a look at freedrive support and update that, and also I think i may need some testers for XM&Sirrus as i dont have the hardware, but dont ask to test if you are too lazy to send me screenshots!!!! Dont reply here, PM me about testing.
    There's also a few external goodies im wrapping up that shouldnt take too long, as soon as i can get some time to actually sit down.
