    Is that a bribe? Bribes can be a good thing! hehehehe That is something I have been wanting to implement, but just haven't gotten around to doing it yet with all the other stuff I have going on here. Let me explain:

    I do not have Road Runner installed ANYWHERE right now. I just purchased Vista, and am in the middle of installing and getting it working on my system.

    On top of that, my CarPC died about 3 weeks ago (Bad power supply, and a proprietary one at that).

    Hopefully here in the NEAR future, I will get things back to normal here, and hopefully add the traffic stuff into the skin.

    In the mean time, I am still trying to figure out the basics! (How to show hidden system files, how to show file extensions, how to change the "SendTo" options to add notepad and such. It really sux when you think of yourself as a "Computer Guru" and feel like you are starting all over again heheheheh. It's just gonna take some time to get used to the new OS and where everything is located, and how to get to it. I am SOOOoo tempted to cheat and resort back to XP Pro on my other bootable partition at times

    Other than the whole CarPC world, I am really big into Home Automation. For the first time in 5 years, I woke up this morning, and said "Good morning Samantha" (out of habit) and got NO response, and had to actually get up and turn the lights on manually! Yet another program to get working and set up again...... At this point all that is really working 100% is the Internet connection & Firefox.... that is the most important starting point........ right?

    Thanks for the reply regarding Canadian weather, The Airport codes do NOT work.. but what you have to do For Canadian locations is : "City Canada"
    rather than "city State" for USA Thanks.. What a great skin!

    Any one use a different game SWF and rename it? I have Kamasutra SWF

    Your Date might get the wrong idea (or right idea) as you show off your Carputer.

    Damn I love this skin! It's been added as my default - the best part is the ability to hit GPS on the music player and be able to have all music controls while still seeing your map.

    Only snag I ran into was with album art - I followed instructions to the letter but my music library had the cover art format in png, but named with the jpg extension (I use linux at home) so it took me about 2 weeks to figure out what the heck was going on. Any chance there's a way to support .png files for album art?

    FYI - for some who see high CPU usage - I found (and I don't know why) that changing the maximum screens in the RR ini file to something like 5 for instance on my box immediately made a difference in my CPU usage. Maybe something to try?

    high cpu usage

    you mentioned changeing the screens maxium in rr, tryed looking for the screen line not sure if i'm looking in the right place , i opened the rr into notepad which gives me all the video types path names etc. which line do i change for the screen maxium. i loaded the latest skin had alittle trouble nothing to bad, logo was 1 had the list, but it has doubled up but heh logo works.2nd cpu usage is in the 70's - 80's , i know the first thing you going to say is flash player, which i do have the latest , so maybe the screen max is wrong i know from time to time i get a popup saying lower screens .

    also with the new preload lines added my external gps (freedrive) opens on top of rr and stays there till i close it.

    Yeah that's the error I got on any of the flash skins - like I mentioned, I am not enough of an expert to know if this is technically acceptable or if it is doing anything different, but it did "seem" to help me.

    It's the line called "screenlimit=" in the rr.ini file. Mine is set at "screenlimit=5" - I think the minimum is 3. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my onboard video card has very small memory so it is rolling over to the system RAM or something?

    I have been unable to display music control screens with iGuidance 3.01. As a result of jjnit's comment, above, I brought up these screens (see attached). Can anyone help me to
    1) Display the music controls with the iGuidance 3.01 Screen, or
    2) Tell me how to minimize the iGuidance 3.01 screen so that I can get at music controls.

    I think DigitalFX is not able to play nice with iGuidance 3.01.

    Only other thing I can think of that I've noticed (aside from kbreeden's comment) is that if I'm sitting still, i.e. the gps display is not updating, I have to click and drag or pan the map a little to get it to show up. If I'm moving though it's fine.

    I'm using 3.0 though so I'm not sure how different 3.01 is.
