  • GaroNav 1.0 beta 1 Released

    Hi to everyone!

    I released the first version of my Destinator frontend. It has some cool features that are missing in the other softwares, that's why I decided to code it.

    Features:

    * Full text search of streets, cities and pois;
    * On screen speedometers, compass, maneuvers indicator, buttons;
    * Completely skinnable (alpha blending and custom shapes support for all the controls);
    * Listing of standard & external POIs by distance
    * Auto day/night switching
    * Extra infos like average speed, travelled distance, etc
    * Integration with RoadRunner (Thanks Guino!)
    * Much more...

    Remember to download .NET framework before running it.




    Download the last version

    Visit my website for further informations.

    Please betatest... Comments and suggestions are welcome!

    ========RC1 RELEASED=========
    * LOTS of changes!
    * New, powerful alarm system for POIs (it can also handle speedcams!)
    * Automatic Import of TomTom ov2 POI files! Just copy them into \POI subdirectory.
    * Improves skin system, everything is much faster now!
    * New skins
    * Much more stability
    * New NMEA parsing system
    * Many bugfix and small changes.
    * Complete Installer!
    ==============================

          First tests are great, love the way the app is so skinnable , specially the favs and the pois. I think great skins will show up shortly.

          I like the way you implemented the compass and the speedometer.

          I didn't find a way to add speed cameras. Do you implemented that? If you didn't are you planning to?

          I know the first think you will want to do it's to iron out any bugs that might show up, but I canít resist to make one or two suggestions..


          Because of a small app ( tks to Zorro ) that I have running and that takes the left side of my screen, every piece of software must have its origins on 60,0 instead of the more usual 0,0. As far as I could see, GaroNav allows to specify the size of the forms in the skin, but not the origins of the forms. Do you think that this would be possible or itís not in your plans?

          One feature that I do kill for it's the Mapmonkey plug-in Daily Log. I spend all my work days between clients offices and the logs are invaluable to keep records of the times and places.

            Tks

            Don't worry... Regards to the cams, I will implement it, for sure. I want to implement something highly customizable like TomTom announcements for pois.
            For the skins, I didn't specify the origin since many programs (i.e. RR), embedding the forms, automatically move them to the right place. So, I didn't plan to do it. I can, however, add something that just moves all the forms to the right of 60 px, for example. My priority is obviously to fix all the bugs before

            I will kill for daily logs too, so don't worry, it's one of the next features.

            Sorry for the bad english but it's 3:28 am, and I'm drunk

                  Garo: forget that 60px thing. Since AppControl is set up to be always on top, I just adjusted GaroNav skin and moved the controls 60x to the right and it works fine.

                  Example:
                  Pic 1
                  Pic 2

                      Hi Garo!

                      thanks for your beautiful work!
                      First impression is positive, great interface, more legible.

                      How I can integrate in RR? Whit zoom button possible?

                      Thanks!

                        Of course you can. read textfiles that come with the program. Zoom still is not implemented, however!

                          I really really like this piece of software... even though i have been sick and thatswhy havent had change to take it out and give it real testing yet, i can say for sure its going to replace my earlier GPS software...

                          Only thing i will be missing from that is plugin capability... and i hope Garo, that it is going to be in ur priorities.

                          Also hopefully somebody comes up with bit more centrafuzzy looks soon. Graphics look really nice as it is... but i wish more integrated look with frontend.

                            Wow, this looks very promising garo!!!

                            I am a huge FreeDrive fan, but some features seem to be lacking in FD at some moments, and this looks very promising...

                            When you do get around to introducing Speedcams, you might want to check this post I made earlier today... http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...23&postcount=6

                            Also, I suggest you talk to guino and get stuff like direction indicators in RR supported if you havent already spoken to him about that...

                            I'm sure I will have more comments as I try this out...
