    previous.dat holds all the previous destination points. I kill this file and use this for eta/etr calc's. If you close FD with a route then D3 creates a file called Path.dat, this is only created when there is a route, not when you simple close FD. The difference between FD and MM, is that MM uses the previous.dat file as its history, where FD creates its own dat file and stores them in there.

    Great work m8. Wasn't able to test it while driving but I have one thing to ask:
    I display some FD data in RR like next turn and next street. It all works really nice but once I arrived at my destination and continue driving or I cancel the route the FD does not update this data any more. So I still have something like "Turn left" and "Abbey Road" on my screen. Can you make FD update those variables or whatever you wanna call them so nothing is displayed?

    This was when you are using a roadrunner menu, not a freedrive one. If you want a roadrunner menu to be transparent then just add V,80 to the.skin file. I have played with transparent menus before, they work fine until roadrunner embedded FD, then things just go tits up, so i'm sticknig with solid menus at the mo.

    You can mind u do 95% of FD menus in RR now :-)

    Hi, CDRSkull,

    Tried 0.82. Sorry but for me i'ts not your best version.

    Eta and Etr :
    I saw your trick: Route recalculation every km or mn with your splash screen : "Please Wait" ==> new origine at your current position but this give strange results. Example : If you go the wrong way, you can hear up to 6 "route recalculation" before freedrive recovers head ; Very irritating. Tried same route and same mistake with vers 0.81 : new route is faster calculated and only one "route recalculation" when find. (same new route but you are not lost in a center town)

    History :
    you were in the right !

    In Map directory, Previous.dat stores History. You can alter or restore this file and this delete or recover "Destinator history". Freedrive use also History.dat in Favorites directory.

    With C_Client or Mapmonkey, Previous.dat is only changed when you define new route. No matter with route recalculation. With Freedrive Previous.dat changes when opening Freedrive then at every Route recalculation.

    Route :
    If you define route, (but you said it yesterday) a new file Path.dat is created when exiting any destinator program (C_Client.exe or FreeDrive). This file is erased after you reopen any destinator frontend.

    Experience with C_Client : you delete Path.dat : no route when reopening. You restore Path.dat and then recover your define route when beginning Destinator.

    This file is not used by Freedrive ?

    Hibernation :
    Manual reconnecting works fine and avoid to close and reopen freedrive when your GPS is lost. Result, your current route is not canceled. Good job.

    For me, best use for the moment should be : Vers 0.81 + manual reconnecting of 0.82 + Skin with touchmenu = 0" ==> allows manual route recalculate for ETA and ETR.

    yeah well i'm doing a rrskin at the moment so thats good, the thing is i'm trying to use the "click on the map screen and show a rr skin menu" which works ok.
    the thing is, when the menu is shown, freedrive disappears (so i just see a menu and the background of the external gps rr skin. needless to say, this is not the desired effect. i want it just to show " over the map" like a regular fd menu. after i get that sorted (if possible) i'd like to use transparancy to get rid of the square edges (again if possible, not looking good btw)

    you might sort this problem out by sticking a C01 (clip) in your RR skin, make it the same size at FD's window, this then will do what you want. As for making the above menu transparent just at a v,80 to the bottom of the .skin file :-)

    let me know how you get on.

    Hi.. It shouldnt show the please wait when its recalc'in the eta.. if it does then this is defo a major bug.. you also shouldnt here and voice either when its doing this.. if you do then this to is a bug. I will be using the path.dat in the next release (easy to do)
