    Gas Price DigitalMod

    I wanted to get feedback on the Gas Price digital mod, i've been working on. The functionality is similar to the one found in RoadRunner, but made easy to use.

    Gas Price DigitalMod displays the gas prices of the 8 closest gas station from your current zipcode. The digiMod indicates and annouces the lowest price gas station. it also allow you to navigate to any of the displayed gas stations by clicking on the gas prices.
    The gas price information is retrieve from an online site and the website information is cached until the next search is made.
    Internet access is required to find the newest price but not to access the module. The zipcode is computed using streetdeck's navigation api

    Here is a display of the module.



    Installation

    Unzip the Gas Price.zip attached and install the GPS Gas Price.sdz
    before running, make sure to register the two dll in the script project

    ASPtear.dll
    GasPriceDLL.dll

    run the following command from start->Run for those unfamiliar with registering dlls

    regsvr32 "scriptprojectPath\GasPriceDLL.dll"
    regsvr32 "scriptprojectPath\ASPtear.dll"

    There are still some minor details i need to fix before officially releasing it. so I would like to know what you like/dislike about it. I also need icon's for the majority of gas station, if any of you have it please email them to me at [email protected]
    Another thing i cant get to work is the ability to set the focus on a button. I would like to automatically set the focus to the button of the lowest price gas station.

    update

    Here is the new version of the mod
    Can be downloaded from the wiki page. check page 2 for link

    Very cool. If I can get a bluetooth adapter before the weekend, I'll try it out on my weeklong trip next week.

    why do you need bluetooth? to get internet from your phone to your CarPC?

    Exactly. I have a Treo650 paired with a Dell Latitude D800 without built-in bluetooth. I suppose I could use the USB cable that came with the phone, but it would suck to have to unplug it every time I exit the vehicle.

    It wants to give me gas prices in Kansas City, regardless of where I am.

    Looks great!

    You should be able to set the focus to any panel with just the SetFocus method of any control.

    If you make a sub folder called COM i.e. <Script GUID Folder>\COM and place all your .dll files in it, StreetDeck will automatically call regsvr32 or regasm (for .Net dlls) when extracting the SDZ file.

    Upon further investigation, it appears that whatever Streetdeck is using to get zip codes just sucks. The Navigation module isn't returning my zip code, which is 29550.

    Is this database user editable?
