    ITL, you've spotted the only two improvements that the skin could use as far as I'm concerned. First, as you pointed out, the location of the left and right arrows is not ideal because the windows that appear obscure them and they become useless. Second, the buttons at the bottom corners should be a little bigger. I know you were trying to save real estate, but I do find myself fumbling around with them at the current size. I would definitely like to see those changes.

    By the way, I assume the "3" button is supposed to toggle between 2d and 3d view. Is that correct? For some reason I get no response of any sort when I tap it.

    I will definitely be moving the right arrow, and probably the left, too. Is the left arrow hidden from you when in use? Only the right is hidden for me.

    The buttons at the bottom corners are a pain for me, too. I have too spend too much time "focusing" on the screen to make sure I hit the right one. I will make them bigger.

    The 3D/N button sends two commands. I typically like to have my heading up, with the 3D view. However, anytime I switch to the bird's eye view, I like to have North up for frame of reference- so my skin sends both commands...easily editable in the .ini file. Try clicking on the map to ensure that iG has focus...other than that I'm not really sure why it wouldn't work for you.

    Yes, on my 7" TS with the CFX skin at 800x600 both the left and right buttons are obscured.

    I'm wondering whether you could even get by with just one of the buttons since there are only a couple of screens to scroll through. You would just be able to scroll in one direction.

    Worked like a charm. Thanks.

    I'm not using a hub. I did some reading, my problem might be coming from not having all the windows hotfixes. However, I did fix the issue with a program called Xport3, I think thats name.

    Agreed. I tried editing the 3D and save ini file for the size, but I did not manage to see any change in size. I was probably doing some thing wrong, so I guess I'll have to wait until ITL releases a new version.

    That makes sense. Xport3 splits the commport so it can be used by two devices. Roadrunner was probably grabbing the commport and making it unavailable for your GPS receiver to use.

    The Width/Height of a SKINlayer is determined by the Width/
    Height of the PNG, so it's not in the ini file. The ini file onle specifies location of the PNG and one or multiple buttons within the PNG.
