    I think this is where a lot of people are having an issue.

    To start, open up the folder that has the same name as the skin you are using.
    For my example, I am going to use BMV2. The default location is:

    "C:\Program Files\Road Runner\skins\BMV2"

    Next, look for a file called "menu.skin" and double click on it. When it asks what program to use to view the file, choose Notepad (I've set this as the default program to use so I don't have to select this each time.)

    Once notepad is open, find this line:
    Code:
    B08,451,303,339,106,"GPS","GPS"
    (or what ever line ends with "GPS")

    and change it to this:
    Code:
    B08,451,303,339,106,"GMPC||GMPC_OVERLAY||RUNGMPC","GPS"
    (keep the first part of the code the same, just change "GPS" to "GMPC||GMPC_OVERLAY||RUNGMPC")

    And then save the file and close notepad.

    Now you should be able to open up RoadRunner with the BMV2 skin (or the skin you've made this change to) and press the GPS button to access Garmin with my overlay on top of it. You can apply these same methods to almost any other skin, but it may not work in all skins.

    simply create one. open up notepad, add the text as described in the instructions, and then save it as exectbl.ini (make sure it's not saved as exectbl.ini.txt) or just copy it over from the RR folder and edit it.

    working here but i am getting sometimes "pink" square screens. i guess this comes from elcos overly plugin.

    which version are you guys using? the one packaged with this one or the link to the resource friendly?

    DaddyLikeTrucks,

    I cant comment on iGuidance, never used it before and i couldnt test it as where i live, Garmin Mobile PC is the only solution for me to get full gps navigation.

    In saying that though, ive had Garmin Mobile PC running for the last 2 days on my test pc at work (without a gps unit, just been doing simulation runs) and the feel of the program is just wonderful to use. The voice turn by turn is great, the ability to "shape" your routes is just an awesome feature which is easy and quick to do, the ability to also do turn by turn detours is another awesome feature, the OSK overlay that MonkeyRacer made is a very good addition to it. Its very easy to show/hide the keyboard and you always have the music controls showing. No complaints about it at all!! All in all, im very impressed and excited about GMPC + OSK Overlay and i cant wait till my gps receiver arrives so i can actually road test it.
