  • RELEASE: Map Monkey v1.1.3

    Edit: Installer has been updated to fix the problems installing over the BETA, Advanced GPS bugs and when closing Map Monkey via the 'X'.


    It's here...

    Code:
    Version History
    
    [v1.1.3]
    
    *New Features*
    --------------
    
    -Advanced GPS Mode
    	You can now connect Map Monkey using an advanced mode where 
    	information such as speed, heading and number of satellites 
    	is available.
    
    -Map Monkey SDK (MonkeyTalk)
    	The SDK for Map Monkey has been released. This makes it
    	very easy to create your own plugins or embed and integrate
    	Map Monkey fully in your application.
    
    -Speed Camera Detection
    	Map Monkey can now notify you of approaching speed cameras.
    	Cameras can also be easily added or removed from the database
    	via a buttons on the main toolbar
    
    -Automatic Update of Speed cameras
    	When connected via the SDK, you can opt to be notified
    	of any approaching cameras. This is useful for custom applications
    	and plugins.
    
    -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
    
    -Import Speed Cams into Favorites
    	On the configuration screen, you can now choose to import all 
    	of the speed cameras of your chosen database straight into
    	the "Imported Speed Cameras" favorites folder of destinator. 
    	This means they will appear straight on the map rather than 
    	having to wait for them to be detected before showing up.
    
    -Custom Speed Warning
    	By editing the value in Settings.INI, you can have a custom
    	speed warning that will alert you when reach a certain speed.
    
    -Scroll Buttons
    	There are now buttons on dialog screens that allow you to scroll
    	up and down any lists. This helps touchscreen users who find it
    	difficuilt to use the small scrollbar.
    
    -Camera Warning Sounds
    	There are different warning sound for each type of speed camera.
    	Any new types of camera can also have sounds made for them
    	by creating a wave file and calling it Warning[x]_[TYPE].wav
    	and placing it in the WAVE folder.
    
    -CdRSkuLL Skin
    	The popular skin by CdRSkuLL has been updated for 1.1.3 and is
    	now the default.
    
    -Plugin Structure
    	Map Monkey now allows you to select the plugins to use
    	at startup.
    
    -Windows Media Player Control
    	You can now map your Prev/Play/Next buttons to Windows Media
    	Player.
    
    -QuickFavorite
    	A button on your skin or a hotkey can now be assigned to
    	quickly add the current location into a favorites folder.
    	Only the "Classic" skin has this button by default.
    
    -Default Address Sort View
    	You can now specify the default view to use on the route to
    	address dialog
    
    -Background image on skin
    	By placing a "Tile.JPG" inside your skin folder, the image will
    	be tiled on your skins background rather than a colour.
    
    -Hide Mouse
    	It is now possible to allow Destinator to hide your mouse while
    	it's running (and make it visible again upon exiting)
    
    -Import / Export of Speed Cameras
    	It's possible to import new cameras to the speed camera
    	database (MapMonkey CSV or PocketGPS CSV) and also export
    	the current database to a CSV file.
    
    -Set Volume on speak
    	You can now specify a volume for voice directions.
    	This will help keep directions at a safe & suitable level even
    	when the music is loud.
    
    
    *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.
    
    -ETA/ETR (Revamp)
    	Estimated Times Remaining/Arriving have had a complete overhaul.
    	They are now determined on the fly using your current speed. If you
    	are not using Advanced mode they are calculated using a customisable
    	preset speed.
    
    -Zoom Steps
    	You can now customise the amount of steps between each zoom (for the
    	skinnable zoom buttons and zoom hotkeys)
    
    -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
    
    -Custom OSK Keys
    	You can now add custom characters to the on screen keyboard
    	without needing to replace the preset keys
    
    -Non-English Regional Settings
    	The frontend now fully supports non-english regional settings
    
    -Close Message freezing Destinator
    	When an application sent a window close message to the
    	frontend it froze up. This is now resolved.
    
    -Global Hotkeys when embedded
    	An error was occurring when using global hotkeys embedded. This
    	should now be fixed.
    
    -Various other undocumented bugs have been fixed
    I strongly urge you to back up your maps and delete your C:\DestinatorApps folder before installing this version. If you choose not to, this is the first thing I'm going to tell you to do if any problems arise.

    Yes, this is the official version!

          The SDK still won't work with delphi
          Code:
          unit Unit1;
          
          interface
          
          uses
            Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
            Dialogs, OleServer, MonkeyTalk_TLB, StdCtrls, ExtCtrls;
          
          type
            TForm1 = class(TForm)
              mm: TMonkeyMessenger;
              Timer1: TTimer;
              Label1: TLabel;
              procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
              procedure Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
            private
              { Private declarations }
            public
              { Public declarations }
            end;
          
          var
            Form1: TForm1;
          
          implementation
          
          {$R *.dfm}
          
          procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
          begin
          mm.Connect;
          end;
          
          procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
          begin
          if mm.Connected = true then label1.caption := 'connected';
          end;
          
          end.
          And when I exit mapmonkey by clicking on the little X I get a nice msvbm60.dll and unknown error But it works perfectly when you click on exit.

            The "Connect" method you're calling isn't part of my SDK, to connect you have to set the "Connected" property to True. Maybe that's what's wrong?

              NM. Can you allow installation to install to a specific location again. I used to be able to install to the D drive. No I can't.
              It would be greatly appreciated. I already have a dll that works from the D drive. Now I just need your app on the D drive.

                You mean a cracked DLL?

                  Two more questions/requests.

                  1. Is the "Destinator SDK Not For Sale" message right in the middle of the map neccessary? Is that something PowerLoc wanted you to do?

                  2. A close button next to the scroll buttons on your skin would be great too. It's pretty hard to hit the little X on a touchscreen.

                  Really good work so far NM. I hope powerloc smartens up.

                    I just opened it up in a hex editor and changed all the C:\destinatorapps\ to D:\destinatorapps

                      1. I didn't put it there (nothing to do with my app), that's part of the SDK demo

                      2. Why do you need to hit the X? Doesn't HOME do the same thing?

                          So you started using a newer SDK? I've never seen this message before. I wonder if my old sdk files will still work with your new release?

                          Think you can still allow me to install it in a specified location?

                            It's the same SDK, it just hasn't been modified to accept large maps (and the "Demo" message hasn't been removed)

                            There's nothing to stop you using a previous DLL, but I'm not advising that.

                            Edit: I'm not reuploading 16mb (forcing everyone who's downloading now to cancel) just so you can install to a different drive. Can't you install to C:\ and just copy it across?
