    Any update on 1024x600 mode?

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    After I changed these files on my laptop running vista, everything ran ok. Now I tryed to install into my carpc running xp and after about 15 sec or so running GMPC the elcosmenu script closes itself.
    Would you have some advice regarding this problem?

    Im using BMW E36 skin and running latest rr version.
    Attached follow my config files.

    Ive already used the same files MR provided but still the same.

    Thanks,

    I was thinking of moving the command for the OSK to where the BACK button is on the overlay, and changing the image to INPUT or something like that. Then I would change the GARMIN RR button to the command to return to RR (the music screen if possible), with a scrolling track name/artist name/track length in the button area.

    Would this be possible?


    Never tweaked an overlay before, been awhile since I jacked with skin editor too!
    I did manage to create a new skin and customize it to add the song and navigation buttons. The only limitation is that the screen must use a screen resolution of 800x600 or larger.



    I'm still putting some finishing touches on my skin and the beta should be available soon.

    Looking at the Garmin Hacking thread I wonder if you could make the Garmin border images transparent and just build the overlay to match your skin? You would have to modify the rest of the Garmin images to match your skin though.

    I have problems with ElCamino's Overlay Plugin although using latest version 1.25 on my Intel D201GLY.

    I get this violett vertical bar and RR screen is gone. Anybody else? Must have to do with gfx settings

    I am having heaps of problems with the overlay being a system hog and eventually crashing on my PC.

    I am ditching the overlay and going back to a USB keyboard. Garmin is by far the best GPS app I have had in the car, so i can tolerate having a small USB keyboard to use it

    what skin you using? if your talking about what i think you are that would'nt be triggered by overlay it would be..

    **Open the rr.ini file in Road Runner's root folder and ensure Fastmode=-1 is in there. If not add it, if its another value, change it to -1

    Post a screen shot..
    Did it.. Done it... now I got to keep the neighbors kids away!!
