    need help mappoint 2006

    hey yall, I've been working on my own personal skin here for a while and I'm at a bit of an impass. Basically I want to use the roadrunner integartion of mappoint with mappoint 2006, but I want to make sure the auto center auto rotate are at least turned on all the time, preferablly toggle buttons on the menu.I'd also like to add buttons to swith the day/night maps. If anyone thinks they can help me with this please PM me, I'm going on a trip may 22nd and I very much want this feature working before then.

    I only know how to use the RR skin editor program and I have a feeling this aspect of the skin would go beyond that.

    Thanks!

    cmon now, its been out since april 28th na I dont blame ya, I rushed out and got it cos I was really excited about the auto rotate and the day/night skin use with the integration being so much smoother than S&T's.. besides my s&t keeps doing something wrong, and using 100% cpu then lagging my trip behind my actual location, making me miss highway exits.. so I want to start using mappoint but I absolutley must have the auto rotate feature for it to be useful.

    as long as I get this particular feature in before may 22nd I'm good. I wish I could say more about it but I've been using winspector spy and trying to DL skins that have some integrations already and whatnot, but I cant test because my screen wont be ready till late this week.. if at all

    Day/Night is already integrated. It is not possible to integrate any of the GPS related features (i.e. rotation, tracking, etc) simply because M$ did not add any interfacing to those features.

    so theres still no auto rotate function? that fills me with teh sad, I suppose I could integrate mappoint like s&t.. for some reason my S&T has a memory leak or something that locks up every few hours of driving, so its not good on long trips. Iwa shoping the awesome work that was done on RR at making mappoint look like a factory system would be useable.

    does the s&t and mappoint voice commands mute the audio? I have had no time to test as my screen is out of the car, if at least the turn by turn can dim the music and tell me what I need to hear, then I'm good with the level of integration I'm currently using.

    So, I suck at this kind of thing, but is there not a way to send keystrokes alt+T, alt+G then alt+S on a button press? I know S&T uses some pretty sketchy commands with RR, is there not a way to do that for auto-rotate? I really want auto-rotate.
