    I'm using dfx4 and trying to get the Garmin overlay to work, the program fires up perfectly but i get no overlay at all i am using lord nicons instructions and have gotten a the button to fire up garmin but i get no overlay at all then i have to shut down garmin and press esc on my mini keyboard to get back the the main skin i have attached my config files to get look at i hope there is just something simple im missing.

    "GMPC_OVERLAY","RUN;$SKINPATH$ElcosMenu.exe|GMPCOL .skin" ---->GMPCOL .skin
    "GMPCOSK","RUN;$SKINPATH$ElcosMenu.exe|GMPCOSK.ski n" -------->GMPCOSK.ski n

    "GMPC","LOAD;GMPC.skin"
    "RUNGMPC", "RUN;$garminpath$;!CDP"
    --------------------------->", "


    I think it is a forum glitch because even just posting it make more errors in the code more spaces where there is not any when its typed out

    Ok, for getting the overlay working in DFX 4.0...this is what i did:


    Firstly, to make sure that you are getting Garmin Mobile PC to load, make sure you have these 2 lines in RR.ini:

    gpsname=Garmin=C:\GarminMobilePC\Que.exe
    garminpath=C:\GarminMobilePC\Que.exe




    Then in your DFX4.0 skin folder, find Exectbl.ini and you need to make a few changes:

    1st: Find the ------Embed External Applications------- section and make sure the Garmin/Gps line says this:

    "Garmin","LOAD;Garmin_GPS.skin;!CDP_FIELD_WND;C:\G arminMobilePC\Que.exe;!CDP_FIELD_WND"

    2nd: Find the ------Dynamic Menu Buttons------ section (down the bottom of the file) and make sure you have this line:

    "MyApp53","GMPC||GMPC_OVERLAY||RUNGMPC"


    3rd: Find the ----GPS Section By BlueZX3 & JohnWPB----- section (VERY bottom of the file) and then add these 5 lines:

    "GMPC_OVERLAY","RUN;$SKINPATH$ElcosMenu.exe|GMPCOL .skin"
    "GMPCOSK","RUN;$SKINPATH$ElcosMenu.exe|GMPCOSK.ski n"
    "X_OVERLAY","SENDMSG;ElcosMenu;Exit"
    "GMPC","LOAD;GMPC.skin"
    "RUNGMPC", "RUN;$garminpath$;!CDP"



    When i was looking at how all the files talked to each other in DFX4.0, i noticed that it was all done in the ini's and not the skin files like the other skins. So if you have made any changes to the skin files, restore them to original, make the changes i listed above and it *should* work...did for me (wonderfully i might add)....and i am very grateful to Monkey for initially creating this...

    Dam, just spent 5 hours trying to figure out why the overlay wouldn't open when I hit the GPS button on DFX4.

    Numbnutz me had the overlay open command on "B06" which is actually the 5th button. LOL

    Moved it to "B07" , and all is well.


    Now to conquer voice control!

    Not for me, my voice prompts in GMPC for turn-by-turn are the same volume as the music I am listening to.

    The only prob I have is when I am using the stock radio or disk changer, and the audio from the pc is switched off.

    Working on a fix for that, involves a line level output mod to my stock HU that would input into the carpc.
