  • Adding POI's on the fly (speedcams)?

    Is there a small utility out there that can store the current position and speed into a textfile (or something) for later use ?

    Over here the speedcam databases are few and old and since I travel a lot
    by car it would be nice to be able to add/refresh the info.

    That's a great idea. Ninja monkey might be the best for doing this.

            Interesting...

            So just a button on the menu that when pressed will import your current Lat and Long into a CSV?

              True, maybe in an ini file?

                Edit: Not a CSV but a DAT file! Or of course you could open a text file and write any format you want.

                You could easily add a button to yours...

                Code:
                                Dim dis As DESTDLLLib.DestPoint
                                Set dis = New DESTDLLLib.DestPoint
                                Set dis = d.GetCurrentCarPosition
                                dis.Description = "Whatever"
                 
                                Dim fName As String
                                fName = "Auto Alert 1"
                                   
                                d.AddPointToFavoritFolder fName, dis

                  Netstumber and destinator

                  Is there anyway of dynamically adding POI to destinator from an external script. Netstumbler now supports scripting, I wonder if it would be possible to add wifi hotspots to destinator as POI dynamically - cool.

                      You really don't want to be fiddeling with menues driving 65mph.

                      I made a small app in VB today using Ninj's winsock interface so that when you press any key at all it saves the current position (long/lat) and location (streetname). The only thing missing is a possibility to read the current speed and perhaps heading (if possible) through the winsock interface.
                      Considering it was a 10min "hack" before I left work (so I could test it on my way home) it worked out pretty good.

                      Personally I'd prefer the CSV approach since it would be a lot easier to share POI's.
                      It would also be easier to edit the POI's before you import them to Destinator (or whatever program you'd like).

                        This is already implemented in the current dev. build of AIMEE

                        Really simple to use, even at speed
