  • RELEASE - FreeDrive 0.51 Beta

    Ok peeps, I think the SDK is nearly done. I may add a couple more commands over the next day or two, but its looking quite good :-) I havent checked the 'request' command in it yet, but cant see any reason why they wouldnt work.

    New in this Version (0.51)
    - Added more commands to SDK
    - You can now use a external OSK with the SDK (input text)
    - Fixed a couple of bugs from 0.5 version
    - No need to enter text that you don't need in the skin.ini
    (hence get rid of "menubutton=" if using touchmenu)

    Grab it from the FreeDrive website. If you already have version 0.5 installed, then just download the updated FreeDrive folder and overwrite the current one (default installed at C:\Program Files\FreeDrive)

    cheers

    p.s heres a copy of the readme included

    Code:
    FreeDrive 0.51 Beta 
    
    Please remembr this is only a beta release.
    
    SDK How to use.
    
    The SDK uses the COMsend command which examples are provided for in VB6 and Delphi (thanks goes to Guino for these)
    
    
    COMMANDS
    
    FreeDrive can now accept the following commands through COMsend Please send them to the name "FDSDK" so for example
    to ask FreeDrive to turn to 3d view you would use COMsend "FDSDK","view3d" 
    
    view2d - changes to 2d view
    view3d - changes to 3d view
    viewbirdseye - changes to birdseye view
    day - changes to day skin
    night - changes to night skin
    address - shows the address input page
    history - shows the history page
    favorites - shows the favorites page
    home - goes to the address in favorites called 'HOME'
    cancel - returns to the main screen
    clear - clears current route and returns to the main screen
    go - like pressing the go button
    delete - like pressing the delete button
    add - like pressing the add button
    swap - swaps between city and postcode on address screen
    street - like pressing the street button
    house - like pressing the house button
    keyboard - like pressing the keyboard button
    quit - ends FreeDrive
    input - Sends anytext to the textbox ie. COMsend "FDSDK","INPUT||L" would send L or "input||TRYTHIS" would send TRYTHIS
    	you can also use "input||{bs}" to backspace (delete last letter) or "input||{ }" for a " " (space). The input 
    	command uses VB's sendkeys command, so just follow that format :-)
    
    REQUEST
    
    These are used to request info from FreeDrive, like speed, heading etc.. If you require info to be sent all the time, please 
    alter the sdk.ini file. You use this command like  COMSend "FDSDK" , "REQUEST||FDSPEED||RoadRunner" 
    
    FDSPEED - What speed your doing
    FDSATS	- Number of Sats currently getting
    FDETA	- Expected time of arrival
    FDETR	- Expected time remaining
    FDHEAD	- Heading in word format or degrees (dependant on the skin your using in freedrive)
    FDROAD	- Current Address
    FDLONG	- Present Longtitude
    FDLAT	- Present Latitude
    FDALT	- Present Altitude
    FDTIME	- Time
    FDDATE	- Date
    FDEND	- End Address (the one your routing to)
    FDDIST  - Distance to end
    FDUNITS - Impiral or metric.. (miles or km)
    
    
    You will also notice a sdk.ini, look in this for details on how to get freedrive to send info every second without
    requesting it. This is to remove the need for request commands. 
    
    
    cheers

          Yes please add it as it helps me know if the GPS is aquiring sats or just isn't working as there is noway right now u can tell if the GPS is set right

          Also as FD progresses will it be able to call up any dialog on the skin part? or will you still stick to the menu button?

            The request command is nice to have multiple applications polling the info from FD at the same time.. it seems in a slight variation from RR's request command .. (which is "REQUEST;<WINDOWNAME>;<INFO>") not that it matters though.. good job! I'll test that stuff soon..

              FreeDrive has a SDK, I think Netsuo is adding the ability to add what ever buttons you want to call up any pages you want

                          Chances are then you werent running the latest 0.5 Full version. I assume you were running your touchmenu skin. Go into your skin and stick a # in front of menubutton= bit. That should sort it out. I did stick this info in 0.51 release notes :-)

                          - No need to enter text that you don't need in the skin.ini
                          (hence get rid of "menubutton=" if using touchmenu)

                              I dont have that map here. I have tried it with what maps I have and everything seems fine. If you could get the map to me somehow I could see whats going on. How big is it ?
