    Just tossing out ideas, but how about a little info on that GPS screen so you can figure out what's what?

    Something along the lines of the display below, but with it transparent so you can see the map underneath it, maybe with a clock on it.

    You could enter the distance and AMP could do an estimate of the ETA.

    A little graph with the altitude for the last 30 minutes might be cool.

    What would be really neat is if you could enter how long you wanted the trip to take (say 400 miles in 5-1/2 hours) and AMP would tell you how fast you had to drive in order to stay on track.

    Sort of: "Drive 60 mph for 15:45 seconds, or 65 mph for 13:22 seconds, or 70 mph for 11:38 seconds"

    Anyhow, just some ideas.

    Bugbyte, since you are familiar with this software. I have a question for you. Should I have AMP launch GPS2GE, GE, or both? GPS2GE makes you click on "start", then it has a launch button. So if I launch GE, it would be worthless in car without GPS2GE running. But it would be pretty lame to have them click "Start GE" from within GP2SGE. What do you think?

    BTW, great ideas above

    Cant you just "borrow" the code from GPS2GE and implement it directly into AMP? How hard would that be? It just seems a bit out of the way and clumsy to open another app...

    Do you know where the source to GPS2GE is?

    Yeah, I think having AMP generate the kml output is the way to go, but it requires you to code it into AMP. I did this with an applescript app awhile back but never perfected parsing the GPS NMEA string. With GPSDX, you don't have to do that any more.

    ZapWizard and I did some work on this. He got the ball rolling with this thread.

    All AMP has to do is output an XML file that looks like this:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <kml xmlns="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.0">
    <Placemark>
      <name>You are here</name>
      <LookAt>
        <longitude>-97.71000561814689</longitude>
        <latitude>30.42429421692663</latitude>
        <range>278.0278314144478</range>
        <tilt>-9.659668009047623e-012</tilt>
        <heading>0.01848385803939365</heading>
      </LookAt>
      <styleUrl>root://styles#default</styleUrl>
      <Point>
        <coordinates>-97.70987727305658,30.42409456391263,0</coordinates>
      </Point>
    </Placemark>
    </kml>
    You can set a couple of other options like icon, but that's it.

    I'd say that if you code that file generation activity into AMP, then you can put a NAV button in AMP that would launch GE, then begin generating the kml file. That avoids the necessity to have GPS2GE in between all the apps.

    The GPS2GE app is written by a member here - Ravidavi. I'm sure he'd be willing to help out. He lists his email as ravidavi at mail dot utexas dot edu in the read me file. He wrote about this app in this post.

    Newsflash: Go to: https://webspace.utexas.edu/rm2636/www/GPStoGE.zip and download.

    Open gps2kml.cpp in Xcode. He included the source so you can muck with it.

    how do I delete...

    I just jumped into this app and so far I will have to assume this is about the farthest we have gotten to a nice looking front end that works... I'm really proud of all the work aychamo and the rest are putting to get this working...

    Now I would like to know... How can I delete the movies playlist or reload it? I have it double and I would like to reimport it once only...
    Any help will be appreciated...

    Thanks,

    AMP rebuilds the database from scratch each time it imports. So the movies list will represent whatever your system currently has on it.
