  • Destinator 3 Frontend v1.1.3 BETA

    This is a BETA version of the frontend, if you wish to participate in the test, BACK UP YOUR CURRENT DESTINATORAPPS FOLDER.

    With that done with...

    Code:
    Version History
    
    [v1.1.3 BETA]
    
    *New Features*
    --------------
    
    -Advanced GPS Mode
    	If you have a NMEA GPS receiver, you can now connect destinator
    	using an advanced mode where information such as speed, heading
    	and number of satellites is available. If you use the winsock
    	control, you can even retrieve the entire NMEA string.
    
    -Speed Camera Detection
    	The frontend can now notify you of approaching speed cameras.
    	Cameras can also be easily added to the database via a button
    	on the main toolbar
    
    -Automatic Update of Speed cameras
    	When connected via the winsock control, you can opt to be notified
    	of any approaching cameras. This is useful for custom applications.
    
    -Scroll map with hotkeys
    	You can define hotkeys to scroll the map and also return to the home
    	position.
    
    -Fullscreen Mode
    	A hotkey can be defined to enter and exit fullscreen mode. You can 
    	also choose to always start in fullscreen.
    
    -Reconnect GPS on power resume
    	When returning from standby or hibernate, you can choose to
    	automatically reconnect the GPS.
    
    -Navigate Button
    	There is now a navigate button on all dialogs at the bottom right of
    	the screen
    
    -Manual Destination
    	You can now route to specific longitude and latitude coordinates.
    
    -Speed Display
    	The current speed can be overlayed on top of the mapping window
    
    -Customisable Infobar
    	Most aspects of the infobar can now be edited (fonts, colors,
    	positions) by modifying the skin.
    
    -Destinator Skins
    	Each skin can now have it's own individual "Destinator Skin"
    	allowing you to change the scrollbar / fonts / internal
    	buttons of destinator without effecting other skins.
    
    -Line Mute on Maneuevers
    	As well as Winamp and Frodo control when approaching a maneuver,
    	You can now optionally mute a sound line on your system.
    	(Wave, Mic, Line-in etc..)
    
    -Volume Control
    	Buttons can now be added to a skin to control the master volume
    
    -New Voice Pack
    	A new voice pack from the PPC version has been included called
    	'UK'
    
    -New Winsock Control
    	A newer version of the Microsoft Winsock Control (MSWINSCK.OCX)
    	has been included. This should fix any compatability problems
    	with other applications and help with performance issues.
    
    
    *Changes / Fixes*
    -----------------
    
    -Client/Frontend Merge
    	The client and frontend have been merged into a single application.
    	This will greately increase the speed of operation.
    
    -ETA/ETR
    	The Estimated Times were being incorrectly calculated. It has
    	now been fixed.
    
    -Button Click Simulation not working when embedded
    	This has now been fixed.
    
    -Zooming Loop
    	The map scale would reset to max if you zoomed in too far. This has
    	now been fixed.
    
    -TMC Disabled by default
    	TMC is now disabled by default in the configuration file due to
    	unsuccessfull testing.
    
    -New Hotkeys
    	Hotkeys have been added to perform many new functions - such as;
    	-Cycle Through a dialog
    	-Toggle Map Color Mode
    	-Toggle Map Orientation
    	-Add a speed camera
    
    -New Winsock Commands
    	Many winsock commands have been added to enable lots more control
    	from a custom application. Please see the development folder for
    	further information.
    
    -Custom OSK Keys
    	You can now add custom characters to the on screen keyboard
    	without needing to replace the preset keys
    
    -Various other undocumented bugs have been fixed
    I've not got time to write a quick FAQ right now, so just install and start playing... "Advanced GPS" is what you want to enable for the good stuff

                If you hare using XP , move the TABCTL32.OCX to windows/system32,
                Then start , run , regsvr32 \windows\system32\TABCTL32.OCX
                Then you can configure D3

                  if i am pressing The Arrow in the right corner or trying to use any buttons in the menu, i get the message that windows has closed it down, and i can send a fail report. etc.

                  I also get this fail on my 2 laptops (XP SP2), and also with the earlier version of D3

                      What OS is on your laptops, never heard this one before

                      Also, please don't post any more problems / bugs in this thread.

                        Are questions ok for here? anyways, I finally got Sirf mode, which seems to have helped get better usage of GPS support here in sao paulo... locks are more reliabel apparently, with the ton of buildings in the area...

                        Anyways, advanced gps is just for nmea? any technical reason for that or is it just that sirf isnt ready yet? what are the differences? can i use speed cams in sirf? what are the other advantages of advanced mode?

                          It's just for NMEA I'm afraid.

                          Advanced Mode will enable you to do the following:

                          Detect speed cameras
                          Overlay your current speed on the map
                          Display the number of satellites on the infobar

                          The rest is really for developers (the full nmea string can be queried, along with speed cameras, current heading etc.)

                            damn..... but nmea is slower than sirf right? will it ever be possible to support sirf? I dont see why it couldnt if all the information, speed, heading, etc is still available when using sirf.... can you share the limitation with us curious folk? I guess i might have to go back to nmea then!
