And it's me again too - you just can't get away from me :-)

Funnily enough, I installed a second LCD to my setup on Saturday using the dual (DVI and VGA) outputs on my video card.  No, you can't have the map on one screen and the interface on the other as you can't "undock" the map from the RB interface.  You could drag the whole interface over 2 screens to give you a full screen map and a full screen interface if you wanted.  Or you could leave half of one of the screens to display another program.

My problem is that the 2 screens I use are on different screen definitions, so this complicates it a bit if I drag across both.  So what I do is have RB on the big screen and FireFox and my radio scanner interface on the other - it's like having 2 computers :-)

Hopefully, AirNav will develop RB to allow the map and/or the lists to be undocked.

Yeah I tried the two screen thingy, but like you say you cannot undock the map screen. Perhaps its one for 1.6 0r (1.7)

It has been requested, however it will need a revamp of the User Interface which isn't a easy task. However it is one that will be tackled in future versions.

I agree, un-docking the map or interface would be very useful, the use of two screens whilst using RB and a computer controlled scanner is good but havng the map and interface on two screens would make an already great product even beter.
