Thats really awesome news. I guess that means iGuidance has a high probability of working as well. Maybe its finally time to try out carnix.... nah that sounds really dumb. This could really work out nicely for the future of High speed bootups since there are some Linux customized bioses out there.
You can use WINE with D3 so linux isn't behind the times at all check out pycar
Nice linux frontend and he's been striping the kernal to load in 3 to 4 seconds which means you dont need a shutdown controller for it just turn the car off and then back on and this linux frontend works great
Case Install: 99.9%
Dash Install: 100%
Car Install: 72%
no offense... but wouldnt basically every gps program work under linux ... if using wine... since its just a windows emulator... right???
I mean they might not all work flawlessly... but they probably will work to some extent..
It doesnt appear that the guy in the article did anything special besides installing wine , and then routis... (didnt appear to have any special mods or seetings)
I also wonder how much cpu / memory WINE uses?? And if it slows down the system at all.
Still really interesting... but its not something that is special about routis itself (as far as i can see) or the install process.
Nup ..It would be nice if it would be that way..My D3 problem is about registering some dll's and ocx but....never mind..I installed windows today(a very sad day for me).toadter123 ...some programs work fine with linux...but GPS proggs there are not much working...I've was abble to put Destinator 2, NaviPC and that's it
In a world without Gates and Windows there are no fences or walls!!
Navigator 4 has a linux version included with the windows package, also has a pro version with api's
Navigator just isn't user friendly though in a touchscreen environment. Though I didn't know about the API. If it lets you build your own interface (ie embed the map, and build your own wrapper) then it may be useful. If it just lets you control the app as-is then it's not really a goer I don't think.
Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.
