    Yes & Yes (unless you check the box Don't do 'king u-turns. Which after awhile you will. believe me.)

    The error I consistently got was :

    Invalid Procedure call or arguement"

    Although I am not sure I think they all occurred when I was on either new sections of road not shown on the map or 4WDriving away from any roads.

    Hope this of some help.

    I have added a debugger to the next version.. got a 7 day trial of one, so thought I would try it out. I will be adding it to another release in the next few hours.. unsure if I'm ready for a 0.53 release, although I have added alot, I havent had time to test it is normal... I'm going away tomorrow for a week or so, so there wont be any updated for a bit.. still will give everyone a chance to find all the bugs :-)

    check back in a couple of hours.. see if I've done it

    cheers

    Hey CDR,

    I know your gonna travel and probably arent touching the code until you come back but just want to put this here...

    I currently have the following in my settings.ini

    Av as the reverse thingy...

    however all i see in the lower bar, or in FDROAD is:

    334 Europa Av 02112

    Which is NUMBER.STREET.TYPE.ZIP

    now for 3 requests:
    1) can you check the reversing code? Maybe I need to send you my map or something for you to check? (dont know if this is legal per destinator rules)
    2) can we have it configurable for the order? Or at least have an option to have TYPE.STREET.NUMBER (no zip), inverse order
    3) can we have SDK labels for each independently, as well for the number 2) layout above? (type.street.(comma).number)


    And on an unrelated issue:
    1) can we make the street bar in the bottom smaller/diff color? didnt find that in skin.ini
    2) Going from CITY to STREET when entering addresses, requires that the list be filled with over 45000 streetnames in my area (S. Paulo), and that takes a good 30secs on my Athlon 1ghz in the car... is there any improvement possible/caching?
    3) when entering the street NUMBER, can we have a way of knowing which numbers are available, like in the original destinator or even as a list (sometimes we dont know the exact number, or the number we want might be on 2 streets with a slightly different name and it is therefore useful to know if the typed number is valid or not...

    1b) (general gripe) because of the sending of data to RoadRunner everysecond it is difficult to adjust settings and some other things inside freedrive (namely GPS settings is what I had trouble with) since it keeps closing the listbox I am trying to select every second... VERY hard to edit stuff... is there some other option maybe? winsock or whatever is an option? And can I pull lat/lon from 2 different programs? (Road Runner and my custom Tracking program?)

    Just had the first run in the car and except for the above comments i think it is nicer than MM for now... (minus speedcams which will come, and the annoyng fact that in the first run at each session it takes about 7 seconds to open FD and I can see my desktop at that time...)

    Congratulations! (after all my whining above you deserve it! hehehe)

    Hi .. ok in settings.ini the AV is there for a example.. it is case sensitive, so in your example you put Av not AV, which is why its not swaping round.

    I will add a possible format in the setting.ini when I get back. now to answer your questions.

    1. The infobar at the bottom, can be set anycolour you want.. day/night front / back colour by editing the info= in the skin.ini, I have stuck the size to 38 or 39 pixels, as this is needed to save errors because of screens like map select, and poi dialog (any dialog created by d3). You can if you wish remove this bar from the bottom, by sticking a # infront of the info= so it will look like #info= Theres nothing stopping you using the sdk to make your own infobar in any font colour / size you require, just remember you should have at least 40 pixels of space under the map.

    2. Speed up of streetname might be possible, I will have a look into this.

    3. The D3 SDK doesnt allow me to find any house numbers at all, the house button only works if D3 has the number in its database. It would take to long to check what house numbers D3 holds.. as it could range from 1 to ..... and not all roads start and 1, so checking the numbers till they run out just isnt really a option.. sorry I cant at present see a way of improving this.

    1b. I'm unsure if this is a problem with freedrive, or infact the way RoadRunner embeddeds its applications.. If you open any window with the words FreeDrive in its title, and RR is on the gps screen running freedrive it will grab that window and embed it. You will have to ask guino about this. Will look into this to see if I can do anything about this.

    hope this helps

    Cool, thanks much about that CDR!

    Congratulations once again! FD Kicks ***!

    About the Av thing... it is (I'm about 95% sure) as "Av" in my map, no "AV"... I think it might be in there twice though, which could make it reverse to correct type, then re-revers to original type....

    I have tested this option by just adding ad in to the settings, then it displays things that are say for example 'Market Road' to be displayed as 'ad Market Ro' in the infobar.. so it should work with anything as long as its in the right case.

    I will take another look at this

    cheers

    Has anyone gotten strange behaviour from the routing mechanism?

    I added an address, it proceeded to route me ALL THE WAY off to another point so far in the map I couldnt even drag away to see it... Then I canceled route, but got routed to my original destination (without re-entering the address), then I put cancel route again, it then proceeded to route me again to that way off destination... I canceled the route again (and went into menu and cancel once again just to make sure) and then a few seconds later I was home so I dont know if it was still going to try to route me anywhere...

    Also, is "return from hibernate" already in there? I returned from hibernate and didnt get any updates for a while, so I went into menu/settings/gps settings and clicked OK, then I heard the "beep" and it began tracking normally

    Yes, that is in the car.....

    I definitely have some sort of problem here... On another trip I entered a destination, and it routed me fine... when I got there it said "you have reached your destination"... then my Carpc hibernated, got back to the car,out of hibernate, went into GPS settings for it to refind the gps (didnt change settings just hit save), and bam it started giving me directions to god-knows-where once again (this time I didnt even check the final address it was trying to take me to cause it was late at night... )...

    One thing that I noticed on the first time it started navigating me wayy far (previous post), is that before I succesfully entered the address for which I wanted the destination, I accidentally hit Favs, and then canceled out.... I then hit Address and entered the correct address.... it then proceeded (almost sure here) to route me to the FAVORITE that I CANCELED out of, and then to the correct one that I entered, and then finally to somewhere unknown...

    basically: going into fav and hitting cancel will add the canceled FAV into destinate mode...
    entering address will add to destinate mode (after canceling any previous destinations)
    unknown destination being added after correct destination always...
