  • FreeDrive 0.2 beta by CdRsKuLL

    Hi all, well I've decided to release what i've done so far, i'm not going to get much chance to do any coding in the next few days, so thought it would be a good time to get some feedback and thoughts of what i've done so far.



    Below is the link to my latest D3 Frontend release called 'FreeDrive'.

    FreeDrive 0.2beta

    To get the full effect you will also need to download the visual 'ALL' folder, which is below and install into C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator\Common\Interface\Visu al

    Visual All folder

    Please note:- the speedo, number of sats and eta/etr dont work right yet.. there for the next version

    hope you all like it

    Good stuff

    Trip planner - coming soon

    You are a tease

    I like the alternating buttons (2D when in 3D mode and 3D when in 2D mode)

    I don't see the Freedrive task along the taskbar

    Where's my 'clarity' mode?

    Just need a version I can skin now...

                though i have to say i love the "tech" look too it...it´s kind of the one thing iv´e been missing with other software/frontends...there´s no real good designs..but this...this could really become something =)

                    Used it going to work today and it seems fine.
                    Couldn't find "showtime" in the ini, so I added a row with "showtime=0"
                    but I couldn't see any differance.

                    I like what you're doing, getting rid of the built-in menus and using your own, makes a better user interface and gives a cleaner look.

                      sorry, I ment timedate=1 change that to 0.. I've used that many different things in the coding, and re-wrote it that many times I loose track of what everythings called. Yeah change that and it will make the map full size from top to bottom. Will get the speedo, eta / etr and number of sats working this week, and I will also clean afew other bits that keep niggling me.

                      cheers

                          It really looks like one of the best screens I've seen for GPS. Everything's big and readable and it includes all the information you could possibly want without taking up too much map area.

                            First of all, its VERY fast, what is more then appreciated. Its lightning fast!
                            Secondly, its interface still not very customisable and keyboard/remote-aware what I was hoping for
                            Thirdly, bug report: slicking "next" button in main menu causes entire screen to redraw (which is weird), while pressing "back" button only redraws menu window (which is righ I believe). Otherwise, no bugs... hmmm... thats strange.

                              ok, got a few things sorted on it now.. been thinking about making it fully skinable, doing this you will loose the option of resizing, but you will be able to place everything you want where you want it and use what ever pic's you want. For the moment I'm working on getting the speed and sats working, this needs a rewrite of the gps com port page so be a couple of days. The skins will have two jpg's for now. one day and one night, this will then enable you to tie in the gps to look the same as your dash/car/skin already in use.
