  • iGuidance on Linux

    Here is a tease, more to come very shortly:


  • #2


    Its not perfect, and even though in theory there should be no speed degradation, there is quite a bit of lag with refresh. It is however, a very very good start.

        WINE.

        Actually, playing with it more it is really quick. The only thing is when you drag the map, it doesn't drag smoothly, it takes the whole screen with it and then redraws. It does it instantly though.

        I've had some crashes, so I wouldn't say its usable..yet. This is the only thing keeping me from running Linux on my CarPC and its a pretty big disappointment to have to run Windows for that. If I can get this to work, I will be very, very happy.

            *sigh*

            This is the same thing from keeping me from going to Linux. I rely rather heavily on IGuidance...

            Are there any more GPS programs available for Linux?

              I would love to be able to do this with Mappoint, too. iGuidance is really good for voice guided directions to most places, but that's it...

                Well, it works, but I would say barely. Although I almost wonder if they are iGuidance bugs causing the crash. When 2.1 comes out, I'll try it again. We could always put a bounty on iGuidance under Wine. The speed is definitely there.

                  What version of wine were you using and did you have to do anything special to your config file to make it work?

                    I'm not even going to try to answer that. I tried normal wine, then I tried CodeWeavers, back to normal, somewhere in between it started working. If iGuidance worked better, I would be more concerned with being able to duplicate it. If I can get my hands on 2.1, I will see how that goes.

                      Hmmm I was afraid of that.

                      Good luck and keep us posted.

                        GPSDrive is very good. You can get voice with that too I believe using festival - not sure if its turn by turn voice nav or just information that gets spewed out. GPSDrive also supports storing waypoints in mySQL... you can wardrive with Kismet and do the same thing the netstumbler with mappoint does.

                          GPSDrive uses raster maps, not vector maps, and does not support route planning of any kind.

                              We need to start a WINE bounty for it and get some money in the pot. At this point, its not stable enough.
