    Ive gotten the plugin working but it took some patience as it was'nt all cut out like a cookie ready to go. I recommend deleting the plugin and redownload and tell me the steps you do then i can double check for ya. this plugin is very useful and worth the time.

    this may sound basic but did you replace "elcomenu.exe" with newer one? This plugin seriously takes nothing to run. Im running a single core processor never hiccups.

    Some questions for the Garmin users out there

    Allright, I uninstalled iGuidance 4.0 to give Garmin Mobile PC a shot. So far, after giving it a go, I decided to stick with iGuidance. This is with reservations, as I like Garmin's online real time info.

    My main caveat is that I could not get the Garmin software to act like iGuidance native. Is there a way to get the Garmin software to pop up the navigation skin when it speaks directions or I have to pay attention to something? Or did I miss something?

    Thanks

    jgaylor, the OSK you can find here works fine, just follow instructions and you will get it working... if you have downloaded latest version of Ride Runner, it commes wit Carwings skin that alredy has GMPC plugin build in. You only have to check the Que.exe file location and assign garmin button and you are ready to go

    I had this working on previous system that had XP on it, I am now using Vista.. not sure if that makes a difference. Everything loads correctly but when I push any of the Garmins buttons the Elco's menu disappears behind the open Garmin window? If I Alt tab it pops back up as normal overlayed on top but it once again disappears if I push a button. Im using the Elco's menu 1.3version. Any idea's? I used DFX4, was setup through the buttonmaker. I seen somewhere it would'nt work that way, but I always had it setup through that on the XP system..
