I've looked through the various front-ends that were available, and I wasn't really happy with appearance of any of them. I'd also like one that is written in something other than visual basic to allow it to potentially be ported to linux. I made these screens up to give myself an idea of what I want out of a front-end. They're pretty rough and have some big issues (mainly cluttered and too much blue), but that will all be taken care of as development progresses. I have a few copy-pasted images in there to save time in the draft process. I'm thinking I'll write it in c++ with opengl graphics. The biggest problem is going to be reverse engineering the map data from mappoint so I can do my own routing and rendering of maps.
No announcement yet.
