  • FreeDrive Beta 0.3 Taster (D3 Frontend)

    been busy last couple of days, should be heading for a release by the end of the week.

    Things that are now working..
    - Speed
    - Number of Sats
    - Heading
    - No redraw on menu change
    - Main look 'Fully skinable'

    Yep the main page is fully skinable, this means you can put anything 'anywhere' this includes

    D3 Map
    Menu Button
    Speed
    Sats
    Date
    Time
    ETA
    ETR
    Miles or Km

    I've made it as easy as I could, with only 2 pictures for now.. one for day and one for night. It seems to be working ok. Just played with a couple of skins to test.. included pic's below.




    I have the eta/etr to calc, and also the new gps config page to do yet. Still loads to do and ideas to try, but it getting there :-)

            The maps come for my D3 PPC version I bought :-). You will need the maps and the dll to run FreeDrive.. If you can run NM frontend, then you can run this one, it shares the same things

                  I couldn't find my favorites, history, or destinations. Are these also shared?

                    you will find these in C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator\Common\Favorites

                    FreeDrive uses the same Fav's folder as Monkey Map, but it creates a new folder called 'History' where it stores every place you go. You can view / select / delete theses from the menu.

                      BTW is proper .dll the only file from SDK that is needed? Can I delete other bloating stuff, except the map folder of course?

                          the Head is a degree's, so if your driving south it would say 180.


                          Still lots to do.. went for a quick drive before to test the speed / heading / sats.. all seems well :-)

                            Nearly ready for the 0.3 release..

                            The only thing I wish I could complete before the release would be the sirf gps mode, but since I havent got a gps that does sirf (at least one I can get to do sirf) then I will be releasing this in a few hours once I have had a good play with it and updated the installer..

                            There are quite afew changing to this version.. and I've even added a LIVE skin changing page. Also I have added a option for the skin to be a touchmenu.. what this means is that if you touch the map anywhere it brings up my menu, then you dont need the menu button on the screen :-)

                            anyway I've played with a few skins which will be included with the install.

                            Heres a pic of my latest one
