    I believe the most important function that is left is the GPS integration.

    Lets hope RouteBuddy plays along nicely.

    Why 800x600? Nearly all 7" Touchscreen displays are operating at 800x480!
    An option to change between this two resolutions would be better to support these 8" 800x600 displays IMHO.

    Hm depends what you call issues.
    800x480 isn't working nativly - I had to play around a bit with (the registred version of) DisplayConfigX (http://voodoofx.all.de/displayconfigx/) to make it work - but now it's working very well! See http://www.macvroom.com/node/36 for an configuration example.

    The only problem I had with DisplayConfigX running 800x480 consisted in the fact that i needet to cut the borders to match my display (it took me a few tries)

    800x600 of course looks disorted on an 7" widescreen display so it would be a no-go :-/

    Cant you just make it an option to where it would work on 800x480 and for the people who want it have everything get streched out to fit 800x600? Or maybe not strech it out but have the app replace the buttons

    *brain surge*

    Wait, why not just make two versions, one for 800x480 and one for 800x600! It would probably be a lot simpler than having to reprogram one version to do it all. The only trouble you would have is that you would need to make two versions lol, and that would be a pain to have to update and fix... Plus you would need to make new buttons that were all streched out... but it could work :S

    I just got done reading all the posts in here and the main worklog thread and I had pretty much the same idea. I think having an option would probably be the best way to go since it would probably be a lot easier to maintain than two separate versions. Just not sure how easy it would be to code.


    On the issue of GPS I've seen some people mention Roadnav as a possibility. I don't think integrating it as a standalone will work but there is a C library version (libroadnav). I'm not a programmer so I don't know how hard it would be to integrate/duplicate libroadnav into Obj. C. Another thing to consider is that the data it uses (US Census Bureau) only cover the US and US territories. As for GPS hardware support, I'd just use gpsd and not worry about supporting specific hardware.


    On a personal note, I think you guys have realy kicked some *** on this front end. I all but gave up on using a Mac for my carputer due to the lack of decent front-ends. Now I'm thinking I might use a Mac after all. Keep up the good work.

    I think it might just simply be easier at this point to add a launch bar or something to AMP so that people can use whatever external GPS app they want (GE mod, Roadnav, etc.). It would also be great for other things too. I think someone already mentioned this but I was just double checkin' .

    What would be REALLY cool (and I'm not sure if this is possible) is to have AMP open the external application inside an encapsulated window. That way it would be a lot easier to switch to other AMP functions while driving because the AMP controls would still be visible.

    I got to thinking about this during lunch. What about Skin support. Would it possible to write in support for different skins (or themes, or templates etc.) and provide different skins for different resolutions. Just a thought.
