Default SilverLeaf 4.1 allows Round Gauges!

"This v4.1 release includes the J1708 bug fixes (for missing data) and gives an option for Round ("Radial") gauges."

Setting up a new laptop now! 4.1 is not yet available but should be out within a week according to their website.

Thats a long story, but it's coffee time so here goes.
I love the RCA but it did not have a built in GPS. I bought a replacement with built in GPS so I could split the screen and run some mapping software along side it.
Sounded great on paper but I quickly found out that nobody makes Windows Apps. Android or I but very limited Windows Apps and nothing worth a darn for mapping.

I found a great mapping App for Android called CoPilot RV. It's $40
First I tried an Android Emulator called BlueStacks. It allows Android apps to run on Windows. Again sounds great on paper.
Turns out Bluestacks grabs your location once on startup and then never updates it. Fine for most apps but not for a mapping app.

So, I purchased an Android Tablet 10 inch from Lenovo. I set up with Pandora and COPilot and then Bluetooth to my Stereo. Works great. GPS lady interrupts music and everything!

I am going back to the RCA for Silver Leaf.
Now I have 2 screens mounted on RAM mounts which is what I was trying to avoid.
The RCA is still a great choice for Silverleaf. I was simply trying to more from the screen.
Ultimately I would love to see an Android version of Silverleaf but I am not holding my breath.

So, first I tried BlueStacks
