    If you're using 3.0 open the exectbl.ini which is in the DigitalFX 3.0 folder. Find the following lines and change the word RADIO to whatever you want the button to say:

    /This is the label that is displayed on the Main Menu Buttons
    "SetAppLabels","SETVAR;ButtonLabel;=MUSIC<<=RADIO< <=VIDEO<<=DVD<<=XM<<=GPS<<=PHONE<<=UTILITIES<<=R IP CD<<=TV<<=WEATHER<<=PICTURES<<=GAMES<<=GAUGES STATS<<=BROWSER<<=SETTINGS<<=GPS<<=GPS<<=GPS<<=SIR IUS<<=GAS PRICES<<=CAMERA<<=TRAFFIC CAMS<<=CALENDAR<<=MEDIA COPY<<=COLORS<<=LOTTO<<=NET RADIO<<=RADAR<<=SCANNER<<=HD RADIO<<=LAUNCH<<=SKINS<<=SYS DIAG<<=GoogleEarth<<=Lyrics<<=JUKEBOX<<=TASK MAN<<=G MAPS<<=THEME<<=BUSINAV<<=HOLIDAYS"
    Ok I will dig around and see what I can find. I'm not using 3.0 so how to do it in 2.x ? Is it possible to get the beta 3.0 or is it closed now?

    Kurack, I reviewed the earlier posts and see you're not using the 3.0 beta. There's nothing you can do to change the button label aside from editing the menu.png, which is more trouble than it's worth. You should wait until 3.0 comes out then you can easily do it per my previous post. For now, just remember that "Radio" really means Google Earth.

    As far as I know, the 3.0 beta is closed. It was open to those who had donated or otherwise helped John with development. I suppose he might consider including you if you send him a donation, but I don't know.

    The ability to change the buttons is a fearture in the next release. However, Kurack, as you just made a donation, check your PM. I sent the link to the beta
    Front End of Choice: Ride Runner (Is there anything else??? ) & Powered by the DFX5.1 Skin Available in the Mobile App Mart

    EDIT: JOHN replied to my PM and apparently it was a bug and has been fixed. I will leave the below post I made just so others know what it was

    I checked the list of bugs and dont see any releated to my issue. Or maybe just not explained like mine....I could be real dumb here.

    In the screen to pick the clock or skin background it doesnt show the available options in the list, but if I click the up and down arround I see it change in preview mode (except for 3d logos since it doesnt display in preview mode). Its like all the options are stuck on top of each other in list mode:

    You can see I have the "MINI" logo selected, but you cant see the logos in the list. If I click up or down the logo changes in preview mode. I'm fine with this except I dont know what 3d logo I am picking because preview mode doesnt work on them.

    I just installed Iguidance, and Xport. GPS appears to be working. I had a hard time with the automatic routing functions like Gas Price Finder's "map it" until I applied the patch found on John's site.

    The problem I am having (I may just not know what it should be doing) is when I have a route displayed and I push route(with the ghostbuster symbol over it). I have had erratic functionality from it. Sometimes nothing happens, sometimes several pushes will clear the route, and mostly (it's been pretty consistant lately) I get an iGuidance window that pops up that gives my "Current Location" with a button to save, and the go-back orange arrow up top.

    When it works, it works well (route just dissapears) in both types of displays ('route' and 'map') within iGuidance.

    I noticed it changed some with another problem I was having, where my taskbar was showing up. I changed rr.ini to hide the taskbar. But the problem remains.

    Any ideas, direction, or advice?


    I took some time to do more searching, and I still haven't found anything on this. And it pops it's ugly head about half the time? Does anyone have an idea of what would cause this, or how I might figure out why it's happening. Right now, at work I cant get a GPS connection, and when I don't have a connection and base a route off my outdated position, it happens. So I thought that was the reason. But sometimes, with a good signal it actually happens.

    When this problem occurs, the taskbar usually wants to appear over the top of the skin when it's not specified to be hidden in the ini (I know this part is fixable by hiding it, but I thought maybe it might help).
