  • I will buy CF only if....

    CF is very nice Front-end and I love it. I will buy it, but only if couples of problems will be fixed.

    1st. DESTINATOR. I read somewhere that in the final product you are going to use navteq maps. Well the Greek navteq maps aren't so good but the maps from NGI are much better with more details. The problem is the Greek characters in find city menu.

    2nd.PHONECONTROL. Works perfect except reading the MC, RC and DC phonebooks. Its not bug from PhonoControl because in PhoneCtlLog.txt I can see that data are retrieved from phone and also I can see the files in the Phonebooks directory.I use UCS2 charset and UTF-16 encoding.

    Finally did you ever notice in the destinator that there is a shadow of the green arrow, which is following the sun and is disappearing when is time for sunset?
    If this is true, you can make autochange day-night skin from that.

    Thanks in advance.

    working on the NGI issue and the upcoming release will have full greek translations included and visual voice prompts for navigation included...

    I am working to fix the city encoding issue with NGI maps..

    the phonebook issue was already fixed and post was made with update files in the RC5 bugs thread...

    It too will be included along with about 10 other reported phone bugs that should make phone finally pretty stable...

    never noticed the green arrow, I will check that out...

    and we do not just offer Navteq maps... We can offer maps from many providers and do... Navteq is just the default standard....

          Thank you David for the replay.
          About the phonebook issue, if you are talking about the PhoneCtlInterface file, i have seen that in the RC5 bugs thread and i have allready download it and install it but this is fixing only the contacts from ME and SM not the MC,DC and RC.
          I dont know if it is yours file or Zoro's file. If it is Zoro's file let him to see what he could do.

            Ive bough PhoneControl and i think the interface is great but the Bluetooth connection is to messed up.

            Ive tried two times about 10 hour both times.. the driver support is capped.
            ive got the sowftware worked once.

            Im gonna try again when Centrafuse have a final verison.

              Hey David,

              So, did I help you any with the files I sent you? Any progress with the city encoding problem?

              Really looking forward to the next release!

                still working... it's basically one non properly encoding method in the Destinator SDK, I'm waiting to get a fix or progress of when I will... Once I get the file from them, it will automatically start working in Centrafuse...

                I plan to talk with them next week...

                    I've used D6 in Centrafuse, just Centrafuse will be ready for sale before the D6 SDK will be fully tested and run through QA...

                    I have plugged the alpha D6 SDK into Centrafuse and it worked, it just has bugs they have to work out...

                    It won't be a big deal to upgrade, I will be getting a fully backwards compatible version...

                    simply update a couple of files and you will be on the new engine...

                    few months away though...

                      OK, I just found Centrafuse and I really like it. I had pretty much decided to just go with Windows MediaCenter for my front end but it's having album art issues and frustrating me. StreetDeck almost works, but it has it's own set of issues for my taste.

                      Any idea when CF will be final? I don't want to be without a front end...

                      Also, it would be nice if there was a way to customize the main menu so only the parts turned on showed up. Like if I shut off phone support, then the phone menu goes away.

                      Lastly, any idea on what the pricing will be for Centrafuse?

                          Update

                          I found the menu customize options...

                          And I guess if the beta will keep running with my key until the full version is done then take your time... *smile*

                          Still though, anybody have a clue about pricing?
