WhereIsMyGPS and RoadRunner
I agree totally with the hide on minimized. I have more than enough stuff on my taskbar. I load mine as RR app so (at least while we're just testing ) prefer not to autoexecute or make it configurable option.

An interesting note about using the Road Runner "Launch Apps" facility for this program: I setup the app in RR before configuring the program with my password. In RR you have to create a subdirectory under /RoadRunner/Launch folder. I put the app there and created an ini file for RR and just happened to name it wimgps.ini. For RR three things must be in this file to successfully embed a windows app:
PATH = C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Launch\WIMGPS\WIMGPS.exe
TryEmbeddedTimeOut = 15
Interestingly enough your program used the same ini file for:
And they both use the file without conflict. :cool:
Also when embedded in RR if its not onscreen taskbar is hidden, and program continues to function well. I actually tried to view the website while driving on Sunday. Google doesn't like my internet connection so the screen update is extremely slow. Given that I didn't even try the hybrid view. Will go out tomorrow and try again using stripped down config.
