    working on it... I was moving yesterday and today...

    I plan to wrap up my first update tomorrow with a few initial fixes including this one for sure...

    It was a error in the map detection code... It is failing to check if you have Europe and NA... If you install both it will work now, but I will get this fixed asap and update...

    MapPoint Error

    Installed MapPoint Europe 2006, and everything works peachy. Being able to use MapPoint in CF is a killer feature for me. I'll be playing around with this a lot in the next coming weeks.
    Thanks for the workaround!

    I think I found a solution, it fixed mine
    open the config.xml in notepad and change europe to false and then close and save, it work for me

    sorry forgot to say that it's the config.xml in plugins/mappoint folder

    Worked for me too, though I have noticed a few things.

    #1 - The GPS Info indicates 0 sats locked, and fails to show speed.

    #2 - When I exit Centrafuse, I get some message asking if I want to save map info???

    #3 - The map screen seems to pulsate constantly (the street names and labels disappear and reappear constantly). This may just be the screen refreshing, but it is very pronounced and appears much smoother if using the map in Mappoint.

    #4 - GPS map does not switch to night mode when the skin changes to night mode (I must switch skins manually)

    "ditto". I finally got a lock with my GPS mouse today (it's a cheap one) and was able to actually see the MapPoint interface work.

    Also...
    • Altitude units are in Meters
    • No voice prompts
    • Doesn't save addresses after entering and letting MapPoint compute a route
    • No Turn-by-Turn or anything more than an overview display
    • POI takes _FOREVER_ to load. I let it sit for (a real) 10 minutes before I finally gave up.

    Strange. I get an altitude reading (though it does not ever change...it is also in Meters).

    I also have no voice prompts, turn-by-turn, etc. I am sure David said he was going to address these issues later. I think he threw in the MapPoint plug-in last minute and really has not worked on any features yet.

    I did figure out how to fix the prompt to save map info though (seen when you try to exit CF). I opened MapPoint by itself, went into options, and un-checked the "auto-save prompt". Now at least CF will exit normally.

    DOH! I almost forgot. When the computer comes out of hibernation, it does not re-connect with the GPS. I know this is not a hardware limitation becuase when I use Co-Pilot it reconnects just fine.

    The MapPoint is just an initial release with source code...

    The main point was to add the ability to the SDK to include new navigation engines...

    I have fixed the map detection issue and it will be in the next update and I will update the source...

    I then plan to get someone working on this plugin, taking feedback, and improving it to be a viable navigation option...

    My bad! You're right, it's there.

    Ditto.

    Cool on the auto-save, I'll check that in MapPoint.


    and, I'm noticing as I enter this that David responded.

    I can appreciate the example, and it sure would be nice to have a completed plug-in. I haven't looked at the source, but I figure it's in C#?
