    Thanks. I'm pretty happy with this version. Lots of little improvements and fixes.

    For cross-fading, I recommend a setting of 7 or 8 seconds. Currently, cross-fading only happens at the end of a song. If the user clicks the NextTrack or PrevTrack buttons in the middle of a song, there is no cross-fade. I could probably improve on this.

    For the titles under the Apps icons, if you go into the Settings file, you can clean up the names displayed under the Apps. Since this was a new setting, it defaults to the .EXE name if it was blank.

    This version is working very smooth, update feature works on startup which is a nice touch. The app's page is much better now, maybe needs abit of background colour in the tiles. Great work. SNO

    Everything is coming along smoothly. I've got some ideas for easier theming of colors and fonts.

    I didn't really have any plans to work on DriveLine today. But now all of the sudden, I feel like writing a little service to get geolocation from IP address. I wonder how well that works from a tethered phone. Time to find out.

    Just for the record, based on my limited testing, using IP address for geolocation is completely useless when connected to the internet via a tethered cell-phone.

    I was trying to figuire out what you were trying to achieve. Since once you have a cellular connection it would just hand over the same ip as when you connected as you pass by different towers. If you wanted to use it the way I think you want, I think you need to get something related to a-gps, that has provisioning for cell tower triangulation to assist in gps location. SNO

    I was hoping it would still provide a useful approximation of location, even if it was just at the time of establishing the connection. Nope. It thought I was in Indiana.

    I would just like to be able emulate as many features from mobile operating systems as possible. But the coarse "network based" geolocation in Android uses info about cell towers and wifi signals to approximate location. Oh well. It was easy to test. Now I know.

    Any experiment that teaches me something, even if it doesn't work, is a success.

    No. I was hoping it would be close enough for getting current weather in your general area. It's not.

    I've considered the webpage thing so that someone else could see where I was just by going to my website. Basically, it would just log Latitude, Longitude, and a UserName that could be tracked through my website. However, I don't really want to do any website work for a while. And I'm not sure if anyone would be interested in an option like that.

    The weather app work's great for me, on a 30km trip I get 3 different location reports and they really are small towns. I'm not sure how much closer you could get it. SNO
