  • Problems after changing UMPC.exe to Iguidance.exe

    First of all I would like to thank Red for the frontend software. I have been using the beta version 3 since October, and I have found it to be very easy to use with very few problems. I have one problem in particular I would like to address. When I run Iguidance v3.0 normally without any modification, I could easily use the "save the current location" option. However, when I change UMPC.exe to Iguidance.exe so that it will embedded into the frontend I can not. I would touch at the area around the speed, ETA, etc. and a window will pop up about the current location, but when i try to save the current location, it won't save.

    Also, after looking at the mp3car HD radio demo, would you Red consider maybe in the future to make a skin for that in your next version release? Considering it probably be after your next version, maybe a future add-on?

    I will appreciate any advice or suggestion to my problem.

    I will try and give you a method I use.
    When i use umpc I noticed i couldnt see the weather any anymore in IG3.0 or 3.0.1. The reason is 3d mode has alot of options greyed out

    If you have not done so switch to 2d mode.. Then press and hold the touch screen "like a right click" you should get a popup menu that has save location, weather, and a few other options.

    Wow red you going to be very busy if your commercial version finds out about hd radio..

    the silabs tuner is being a pain for you right now.. I canonly imagine hd coding.

          It also turns out that there is a patch Iguidance v3.01 on their website that fixes several of bugs which this is one of them.

          Just in case for people who haven't had the chance to look at the patch:

          Changes included in patch v3.0.1:
          On PPC, Laptop, & UMPC/Car PC:

          Fixed missing street # range in night mode
          Fixed 2D stopover feature dialog
          Fixed bug in itinerary & Detour
          Fixed certain address not geo-codeable
          Fixed routing problem through intersection internal links (incl. route from/to several Canadian provinces)
          Modified Guidance screen zoom switching distances
          Fixed issue with certain straight maneuvers towards freeway
          Fixed issue with approaching destination
          Modified 3D road width
          Changed code to go back directly to map screen for settings dialogs
          Added Immnext (next next maneuver) icon
          Added Panning mode exit timer (when routed)
          Added all state freeway shields
          Added shadow for dialog menu text
          Added code to retain Panning mode after routelist, current location dialogs

          On PPC only:

          Added timer reset code for PPC Phone edition
          Fixed Phone edition outputting slow voices
          Fixed distance unit display issue
          Improved bluetooth connectivity on wm5 devices running Broadcom bluetooth stack

          On Laptop only:

          Fixed routelist updating issue
          Fixed Current Location dialog

          On UMPC/Car PC only:

          Modified left/right arrow behavior
          Added COM port and BAUD rate dialogs in Settings screen
          Changed to default fullscreen
          Fixed Current Location dialog

          There is also a second patch:

          iGuidance N. America v3.0(dvd version)/v3.0.1(cd version)patch file for map color/road width change

          If you prefer different map/road colors other than manufacturer's default setting, we are providing the following theme.ini files to enable some customization. Note: for 3D view, only colors may be changed but not road width.

                yep
                You have to have a internet connection.
                make sure your in 2d mode. it will not work in 3d mode.
                you will get current time, temperature a 5 day forecast and more from the weather channel

                if you have a keyboard hit W.

                if you have a touchscreen just hold you finger on the screen and a menu will appear.
