  • A couple new ideas for my favorite front end - RR.

    OK, I just had a couple quick ideas that I think people would like, not sure how possible/easy/usefull they are but here goes.

    1. If possible, RR reads through your GPS what direction you are travelling at all times and posts it in a small window that is shown in ea. screen. For example below. I loved having a car that had a compas in the rear view at all times. I just think it's a nice touch.



    2. An oil change log, where you could enter the last time you changed your oil and approximately how long it takes you to do an average of say 2800 miles. Then it could pop up and remind you you've got an oil change due soon and you can view the log of all previous changes - no more ugly stickers on the windshield, plus the ability to review your oil change history. The pop up window could have a feature that says, remind me again in X days. And you could enter the days and it'll pop back up.

    Anyone?
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

    or intergrate it with gps, and program your service intervals, rr records your total distance, and alerts you when you need a service.

      This is a neat idea...it would beat having a notepad file that you just launch in the app section...just wouldn't want it to be as annoiying as windows' reminders...

          1. You can already place the heading of the GPS on the skin. Just edit it.

          2. This is something that a plugin/application can easily do by keeping track of time and speed information from the GPS (It will be INACURATE as hell) OR, you can pull that Lat/Long every so often and perform the distance calculation. You can actually pull this info from RR while it is running. There's no need to stick this stuff inside RR, specially when most people will not use it (although most people will say: "neat").

            Sounds "neat" to me and I would love to see that built into any of the available front ends.

              I take it that this is listed in the skin command text somewhere...Its SOOO long < Good thing!

                Yeah it wouldn't have to be very accurate. Just something to remind you when to check your log. I think it would be very usefull.

                  You do realize this can only be done (whatever way) when using Mappoint, MM or FD right ? (I ask because you seem to use Routis -- according to your sig).

                    Get a Beemer, it tells you exactly when it needs an oil change, Inspection I and Inspection II.


                    God it's horrible seeing less of those green lights lit up when you turn the ignition on.

                      Had a Grand Prix GTP. It did the same. I loved it.
