    I'm using MS Streets and Trips 2006. Alot of peaople don't like it, but I haven't had any problems. The skins for it use alot of sendkey commands, so if You would like to make a skin for it I can...
    Ok, I just uploaded a new version to the download site. Main addition is a Streets & Trips skin. There are a few other additions/enhancements as well. Check the first post for the details. Thanks Gixxer for sending a sample skin with the neccessary SENDKEY commands to make this skin!

    Bugs in program

    So after giving it a little test drive today with my GPS some bugs i have noticed.
    1). Going from playing audio to hitting video, does pause the audio and then start video, then going from video still playing to home, pauses video. BUT going from video to GPS does NOT stop the video AND it starts the audio, until one goes back to the home menu. I tried looking at skins commands but cant make heads or tails about it.
    2). Your Skins for iQWERTY you hard coded in City Name. So it always shows that skin. But when you try to enter destination and it wants a street name, it will show City name instead of street name and that is causing issues/confusion
    3). I do not recommend iQWERTY (great program, but for me the following bugs are deal breakers), there are a boot load of problems that i am only just now discovering and being able to attribute it to that program. i have been writing this post for 30 minutes, while i test out combinations of programs/skins to test what causes what. Prime example, running IQ i want to enter a destination by city, if i type in ROCHESTER it show me a weird listing, but if i can enter ROCHESTER, TOWN OF it gives me the real listing. but i cant enter that easily beacuse "," is not typeable even with my keyboard, i have to try to overload it for a second do "," works. Now the really weird part, if i dont run IQ ROCHESTER gives me the normal listing but the TOWN OF does the weird one. Even weirder as it is now i have to fully type everything it wont select the one that is highlighted even when typed.

    If anyone has any solutions or ideas to this it would be appreciated.
    Question about port spliting while i here. Done some searching but couldnt find too much helpful. Does spliting have any adverse affects like losing WASS or something along the lines of quality. Which one i know of Xport @ Xport.com (i believe thats offical?) the ShowGPS that JohnWPB recommend and Franson gpsGate. so which one is the best? thanks
    and John Awesome work i love the skin so much it is so sexy .

    Unfortunately, I have no control over the video and audio not pausing. That is something that is built into RR itself. It is automatically supposed to stop mp3 audio when going to video, stop the video when leaving that screen to go to any other screen. There actually are not any commands, that I know of at least, to manually control those features.

    I forgot about the hardcoded city name thing. I will work on that and get it fixed.

    Oh.... and yes.... that means the Google Earth skin is next

    Sharing the GPS data thru Xport or similar program should not cause any loss of WASS or any other problem with the GPS, as all these programs really do is capture the input from the hardware serial port and resend it through other virtual serial ports.

    If you're having reception issues then it's your GPS acting up.

    I just want to say, this skin is by far my favorite, and considering that your first post about it was 8-6-06, you made amazing time putting together one of the most full featured, easy to use skins I've seen. The strength of any program is in its skins and you've definetly done a service to the board here, thanks!

    Awaiting RREarth skin (hopfully usine GooPs as well eventually).
    Awaiting Gas auto-zip based on GPS.
    Awaiting Click Gas to Nav-to in iGuidance (and RREarth).

    Thanks for showing me ShowGPS and some cool iGuidance scripts. That clock/speed/logo/compass gauge in the center of the menu is awesome too. I still have to figure out how you do that. How do you get Speed and Compass data in to the flash file? (will you share the flash source?)

    Thanks. Awesome, simple, feature-rich skin!

    Oh, also what XM tuner do you use with it? (What are all the XM/Sirius tuners that RR supports?)

    As Zogg mentioned Xport is one of the most used one's out there.

    Simon123, thanks for the kind words! It has been fun, and a learning experience along the way!

    I do not have the flash source for the clocks. Check out Tissy's Thread (The clock maker ) He can alter the clock per request, and did so for me to match the Blue Devil Skin.

    Also, I'm not sure if you knew, but Guino has been working on making GoogleEarth Native to Road Runner. Check out this thread for more information, and to download the build of RR that supports it. I will be making a skin for GoogleEarth within the next week.

    As for GPS Gas, I have created the skin, and the feature is working to show the cheapest gas stations based on distance (On the iGuidance screen, bottom right button that says GAS), but am waiting on LostReception to finish the code to get the coordinates to iGuidance to route to it automatically.

    clock/speed/compass guage

    I did search for this but could only find one post that was partially an answer. You list mitsubishi (or mazda i think) in the clock/speed guage. I drive a toyota.. Is there any way to modify the file, change the graphic, or somehow get you to send me a toyota one?


    Brown-nosing part:
    This is the best skin ive seen. I just got into it about the same time you created the skin and all of the other ones cannot compare. This is truly some state-of-the-art looking stuff and I cant wait to see it in my ride.
