    Proof of Concept: Interfacing with GMPC

    This is a proof of concept that you can in fact interface directly with GMPC using the QueAPI.dll supplied with the program.

    The attached application is buggy but that is 100% due to my severe lack of coding skills (ie. this is my first time). Either way I feel it effectively demonstrates the potential of GMPC. This app demonstrates opening and changing between the different pages of the GMPC app, control over the GPS (ie. On,Off),Navigating to a specified address, as well as getting routing information, and GPS status,position,velocity, and time information.

    Quick Change: New attachment. The program and dll must be copied to your Garmin Mobile PC directory where QueAPI.dll is for it to work.

    Attachment:Attachment 58006

    Outstanding work ws, I am at work at the moment, but will give it a spin when I get home tonight!

    Great to see we have some real dedicated people who are willing to put so much time and effort into this, excellent work by everyone involved (That includes the other teams developing the plugins, everyone deserves a round of applause)

    I will try to compile new version that will allow one to specify the where GMPC is installed.

    New file attached. Extract the program and dll and put them into the GMPC directory where QueAPI.dll is.

    Finally got everything setup to test it out. Looks great...really excellent work. Just one question, when you enter an address does it also do the automatic route calculation and start? or is there a way to just display the destination for confirmation first?

    Also, is there any way to get more info on turns (like the description? or at least the street name?)

    I haven't had a chance to test with the GPS in, all testing was done via route simulation. There are a few exported functions such as:
    QueSelectAddressFromFind
    QueSelectPointFromFind
    QueSelectPointFromMap
    QueViewPointDetails
    QueViewPointOnMap

    I haven't had a chance to tinker with these, but Im sure some coding configuration can accomplish viewing the destination then choosing to route there.

    As far as turn details such as street names... Im not sure, the API documentation doesn't indicate any of the functions output anything relating to turns except the distance to the next one. There are a few functions that will get the current address information such as the street name that u are on... but I just dont know about explicit turn by turn info. GMPC has a turns page that lists each turn for the route, and allows you to view a preview of it, but im not sure if that information is accessible. The only way i see at the moment is to use one of these undocumented functions QueGetTrackInfo, QueGetTrackPoints. These may give all the information for the current route regarding turns, but they are undocumented in the API so Im not completely sure how I could implement them.

    The good thing is... at least this proves the API can be used... so now the doors are open, and its time to figure out how to step through them.
