Geez, I swear, everytime I fix one thing, something else pops up. Now everytime I switch songs in the playlist, the WAVE line mutes itself. I haven't made any changes recently, it just started doing it by itself. I try to change the setting in GPS that says Reduce Volume to 100% to ENABLE, and after Save and Exit, it still shows it DISABLED. What gives?
Once again, after tinkering with random audio settings, the 20th time did it. Oi vey!
Search for XPORT3 and run it. Select you COM Port3 on top and 4800 boud.
Then split the port into 2 more and click enable. What ever port you have it split, REMEMBER IT.
Now open iGuidance (Without Road Runner) and under TOOLS>PORT SETTINGS, select ONE of the split ports, then iG should work.
Now run RRConfig.exe and under GPS select the other split port, save and exit.
Road Runner and iG should run fine now.:)
Awesome! I will give this a shot. I was thinking XPORT was a piece of hardware. :)

Just tried to reinstall RR again, and still getting the same thing. It just randomly crashes after a few seconds, although when running Void, it crashes before it completes loading the skin. Any other ideas?
Damnit, after the reinstall, it started doing the audio crap again. Any idea what line of code is causing this? It mutes the volume when you change the track...
dude one thing at a time. ok about your gps issues, did you download and install xport? you NEED to do this to get RR and iguidance to work. go into device manager, find out what com port your gps device is on (lets presume its com3). then in xport select com3 from the topmost bar and then in the two underneath select two other comports such as com5 and com6. then hit enable ports. now your com3 no longer exists, only 5 and 6. so in rrconfig, set the comport to 5, and then in iguidance set the comport to 6. that way each will have its own com port. DO NOT USE COM 3 ANYMORE, it is now tied up. that should fix your RR crashing issues unless they are flash related, in which case you need to download and install flash (look in the faq section for more information)
as for your audio issues with it muting on each track switch, try running winamp alone first and see if you get the same issue. if you do then your problem is not in RR. if it happens only in RR, go into the mixer and see which volume is muting each time. is it master, wave, or winamp? sometimes i had issues with my lines muting when i tried to adjust the bass and treble controls because i dont have those options in windows mixer so it was screwing everything up. just try setting in rrconfig to control only master volume for now (not 'all lines') to see if that helps.
also ensure you are running winamp 5.13 only, NO OTHER VERSION.
edit: just also thought of one more thing in relation to crashes. make sure u have your latest video card drivers and also download and install the latest directx. in rrconfig make sure gdi+ mode is enabled
I appreciate the help, but everything that you listed, I have done. Still crashes.

I split COM3 into 4 and 6, and tested iGuidance first on COM4 and worked fine. Tried RR with COM6, and it crashed. I swapped the two, COM6 with iGuidance, and RR with COM4. Same result. :(
2) Flash is up to date, everything was working fine a couple of days ago. Haven't installed anything other than RR and Void Skin. And actually, out of no where, the compass started showing up on the main screen. How come it never showed prior to two days ago?
3) Somewhat of a breakthrough on this point, I do remember opening up Winamp and didn't have the same issue when I fixed it yesterday. When its having this problem, it looks like for some reason, Winamp's volume goes to 0 and sticks when RR opens up again. So after I opened Winamp, turned the volume in Winamp up, closed Winamp, went back to RR, the audio is fine once again.
So I guess the audio bug is solved for now. Any other ideas with the GPS? I mean the GPS still shows in the embedded portion just fine, but it just doesn't feed the data to RR so it will show the Mi/h, Compass heading, and such, which would be a "neato factor" to have.
Thanks for your help guys! :bathbaby:
Wow...after another reinstall, the compass is gone again. See how weird this is? LOL!
