Can't get it to work properly. When I use this line:
Nothing happens, only the overlay shows. No GMPC skin and Garmin doesn't start.
When I use:
Garmin loads but at the wrong resolution and the overlay shows but not in the right place as Garmin isn't at 800x600...
When I use "GMPC","LOAD;GMPC.skin"
The GMPC skin loads...
So it's only when both are used in the same line none of them load. Individual they work.
I think you probably have done this, but have you set garminpath correctly in rr.ini?
GMPC should fill the skin dimensions if this is set up correctly.
I have plenty of bandwidth, but will probably dual host it with the forums here.

Edit: btw thanks for the recognition! It's nice to be noticed.
Yes the path is set correctly. It also runs when just using this part oft the line:

did you copy over the 800x600 files?
if so, then I will have to look at it a little later today, I use 800x480, and that would work fine, maybe I missed something getting it into the 600 version.
Yes, the files are copied over. They also pop up when I only use this part of the line:
Also the overlay works correctly at 800x600.
Ok, I think I found a workaround that seems to do the trick.
In Exectbl.ini I've split the "GMPC" command and made a command called "RUNGMPC"
Now my Exectbl.ini looks like this:
In my skin file it now looks like this:
Now everything seems to work except for the fact that the GMPC.skin isn't transparent. It's red instead?
Since I didn't install any maps yet I couldn't check how and if the keyboard works. But I by the looks of it now this is gonna be a great little add on! I wanted to put Garmin Mobile PC in the car for quite some time now but the lack of a keyboard always kept me from doing it. I think my doubt's are over now. :)
Thank You MonkeyRacer!
While my setup isn't used on a daily basis( I live less than 2 miles from work ) I love my GMPC and have been waiting and hoping someone (with more know-how than I) would work on a solution to this problem. John has done well with DFX 4 to get Garmin into RR but, you including an OSK (with the help of others) is a great stride toward getting GMPC to work like some of the other satnav systems. Although I haven't had a chance to try your mod I hope you will continue (as well as others who add to RR) to get this to work. :high5:
any support for 1024x600?
