    Put only your requests here, I will make a new thread for each when I handle it or when it is implemented.

    DASH PC is already very good in the beta. Nevertheless I have desires:
    1.) even provided routes import
    2.) free language selection of the announcement
    3.) destination at run-time indicate/remove (between stop...)

      Please focus on finishing the GPS portion first, as this is what got everyone so excited :-) It will also be a huge, huge bonus if it integrates with MediaCar. I'm guessing the later may not be accommodated anymore since the unveiling of the more ambitious VOICES (but I'll keep my fingers crossed).

      Thanks for your had work.

        @S4Per Integrating in MediaCar is still an open option. I am still ready for that

          Excellent . Is there progress in that area? Is Coyote actively working with you on this?

            I did send him a PM to find out if he wanted to integrate the navigation system in MediaCar. He said he will test the app , but nothing after that.

              Auto volume change

              It would be good if VOICES would adjust the volume based on the speed of the CAR. The volume control to adjust would be the master volume (as you want to change everything).

              Configuration would be in the ini file and based upon percentage:

              ; minimum volume percentage level when speed is 0.
              autoaudiomin=15
              ; ratio volume percentage level when speed is <base>
              autoaudioratio=60
              ; the speed value that ratio volume equates to (value can be in mph or kph)
              autoaudiobase=80

              Using these values, VOICES would be able to adjust the volume automaticially every time the speed is updated.

              On startup of VOICES, a multiplier (ratio) would be determined. This would be determined by:

              (autoaudioratio - autoaudiomin) / autoaudiobase = ratio

              (60 - 15) / 80 = 0.5625

              Using this ratio, we can then calculate the volume at any given speed:

              volume = 0.5625 * speed + autoaudiomin

              Speed: 25
              volume = 0.5625 * 25 + 15
              volume = 29.0625

              Speed: 100
              volume = 0.5625 * 100 + 15
              volume = 71.25

                Request for change:

                While driving along on a motorway with car stereo off it is almost impossible to get the car pc to understand the longer commands.

                Computer Re-Route and Zoom work fine, but 'Take Me Home' and 'What is my speed' etc are not so good.

                I am using a headseat microphone and it works well if the car is stationary.

                I would like it if the commands were programmable or there were short versions too. It's nice to be able to impress passengers with the longer versions but when you just want it to do it the shorter ones would probably be easier for the computer to recognise.

                For example 'Computer Speed' for speed, 'Computer Home'

                If possible the best way would be able to change them in the ini file, including the 'Computer' keyword too (just in case anyone calls theirs 'Kitt' or something - not that i do!! )

                Request for New Feature:
                Add new destination:
                i.e.
                You: Computer New Destination
                Comp: Please reconfirm to program new destination
                You: Computer New Destination
                Comp: Choose Place or Postcode
                You: Computer Place
                Comp: Say Place Name
                You: Santa Pod
                Comp: 1st Record Found is 'Santa Pod Raceway' Say OK or Next
                You: Computer OK
                Comp: Planning route to 'Santa Pod Raceway'

                  Since there are no installer available, can you please give instruction on how to install the app. Do those DLLs files go into the same direction as the app or how the folder structure suppose to be.

                    @MatrixPC The application and the dll are supposed to be in the same directory. Also ther should be 2 sub directory skin and pointers. In the pointers directory put all the pointers???.bmp and in the Skin directory, one directory per skin.

                    Hope this helps

                      How about having the UK speed camera database integrated into the GPS software. It could then warn when approaching camera. I know I've already asked for this in another thread but I tought it best to have it under the offical request thread.

                        Yup that is for someone who know basic about how application works(in general DLLs file will be search from the current directory then to those directories in SET PATH) but for a total noobie, an instruction would be very helpfull.

                          If already, then a data base, as text file to maintain manuel - around also different countries to supply.

                            This functionality is to specific and would be further down the road on the list of priorities. However, how about more general functionaltiy. MapPoint is good as it has a database which enables you to add new things (e.g. ATMS (Cash points), speed cameras).

                            How about a: "Where's the clossest...." bit of functionality?

                            E.g. Where's the closest petrol station (gas station)
                            Where's the closest ATM
                            Where's the closest speed camera
                            Where's the closest strip joint
                            etc. etc.
