    Directions Indicator

    Is there a skin with working MM Direction Indicators and labels that can be downloaded? I just dont seem to be able to get it to work on my skin.

    I don't know of any released skin that supports it. But the main thing to get it working is to have the MM_*.jpg files in the CURRENT SKIN's folder, and have MM propperly setup according to the FAQs..

    Giuno, is it possible for us to do this with FreeDrive??? I think Cdrskull has added the sdk commands for it.

    Check out this post, I have made a Screen in the Zots skin that allows you to get the Directions on the Front LCD. Here is for FreeDrive RR Skin - zots05

    Here is the Files for Mapmonkey that I had done: RR Skin - zots05

    It works great. I use the Freedrive one, just because I really like Freedrive much better than Mapmonkey now.

    Here is what my current FreeDrive one looks like. This is on my Desktop without a GPS hooked up so it is not showing all of the data.

    You must put the Menu.skin in your Zots.day Folder under the Skins folder in Road Runner.

    You must put the Freedrive SDK.ini file under the C:\Program Files\FreeDrive directory. Replacing what you currently have.

    On the Image, You see the Yellow On. Just above this it will tell you what your Next Maneuver will be such as:

    Turn Right
    On:
    Name of Road for you to turn on will show below On
    Under Dist to Next: will give you how much further you have till the Next Turn or Maneuver.

    The Rest of the items you can see what they are for.

    I have been using this for about 2 months now and love it, hope you like it yourself.

    bryan, he as asking for one thing, you are offering a different one!

    He wants to know about RR turn indicators, which allow you to show an arrow on the skin, not text saying "turn right", they are real arrows, images...

    as guino said it isnt supported yet in road runner, not dependant on skin!

    I have Direction indicators working with freedrive. Mc_Stoo and I worked on it a while back but I never got a chance to use it in a skin.
