  • Gps Bug?

    Hi,

    i tried FreeDrive for this weekend - and i really like it, much more comfortable than MM, but i had a problem with my GPS mouse, as soon as it lost its lock Freedrive wasnt able to pick up a new one, i always had to go to the GPS settings and save them again then the GPS mouse got a new lock and everything worked on.

    any suggestions where it cud be from? or is it poss to implement an auto restart for the GPS mouse as soon as it lost its lock?

    THX

    If you click on "number of sats", reconnect your mouse

    New feature from vers 0.83.

              we have four special character () but usually they arent used in citynames or streetnames.

                  well i dont really need them (at least wasnt in need of them so far - dunno about other germans)

                  if u got spare time and u are bored u can include them, here they are:
                  = dec(142)
                  = dec(153)
                  = dec(154)
                  = dec(225) (this one isnt available in caps)
                  (all ascii extended code)

                  cheers

                    @MDivus:

                    What ? Not used ?!?

                    Kln, Mnchen, Dsseldorf, Mnster,....there are a LOT more. Same goes for streetnames. You don't get around alot, do you ?

                    @CDRSkull:
                    Please include those in your next release. I'm highly interested. Thanks .

                      pweeze pweeze pweeze include a button on the skin to be able to open the GPS Status window so we can see the strength of the signal and also if it is aqquiring sats. as we don't have any idea whats happening with the GPS if there is no signal we can't tell if it's not working for some reason or if it's just trying to aqquire sats.

                      If it's not to much trouble
                      CarPC Status:
                      GPS: 99%

                        Not really :

                        If gps not connected : Number of sat = 0

                        If gps connected but no reception : =00

                        So you can see difference.

                          SDK command to connect gps

                          Hi,

                          Is there or would it be possible to have SDK command to (re)connect the gps? I have bu303 and everytime when carpc returns from standby, I have to reconnect.

                          And btw, thanks for that Swedish OSK. It's very useful in Finland too!
