I have written the attached utility for displaying Speed and Heading on the screen in front of Centrafuse or for that matter any program.
This is an interim measure (hopefully) until it is incorporated in Centrafuse.
It has not been written as a Plugin as for various reasons i am bound to programing using .NET 2. Therefore to use the utility you need to have installed .Net 2, XPort3 with a simulated Port 21 (not changeable at the moment) for use by the Utility and whatever port for Centrafuse.
Copy the dll file to the C:\windows folder and run the utility from wherever.
Right click on the Notification Icon in taskbar for options or left click on the speed or heading label on the screen.
I am also incorporating Speed Camera Notification into this as since using Centrafuse I got caught (My own fault) but this may be a week or so away.
Includes Options Window on screen
doesn't CF allready show the speed and heading? in he left upper corner i think that is...
scroll's between street, speed, heading, number of locket sats, eta, ...
i think there is some option to not make it scroll, but stick with 1 item...
Now includes basic speed camera alerts.
Speed Cameras are read from a csv file:
-sample attached that must be in the same folder
-sample includes data from Australia and UK
-must be same format as available for use with Map Monkey
Audio Alert comes from attached 'speed.wav' file
The utility works by visual alert within 500 metres and visual and audio alert within 300 metres.
Alert can be cancelled by clicking the visual alert but will repeat if still within range.
Distance to camera is calculated in a direct line to the camera and can not take into account the actual distance to travel to the camera.
now it's becoming a handy tool
will test it when i get my car back
Can anyone who has tried my uility let me know whether it works in their part of the world and where they are.
I am not sure of my maths when it comes to Northern Hemisphere.
up to now I could only test the first version of your nice utility, unfortunately without success: I have installed and run it correctly, but when the GPS unit starts producing data, the visualized values become "crazy"; the speed value changes continuosly from values like 50-60-70 when the car is not moving and 7-8 salellites are fixed.
I have tested your utility in Italy.
Is there someting I can check?
Thanks for sharing your work.
