    Oh crap, you said "legal". Somewhere in California, a certain person is probably on findlaw right now obtaining the precedance for this matter.

    A scope of work hasn't really been drafted per se, but it is quite clear between the coder and I that if he is able to do this, at the very least we will have add/modify/delete abilities for POI and that the mass import function is pretty much a necessity. This is documented in all the communication between us and the service will hold him to this. The software will be released as Open Source, so if we ever need to make adjustments/improvements, anyone will be able to do so. Considering we don't have any of these features at the moment, this is at least a start.
    Do you have any ideas/suggestions I need to push along as well? I posted this here so everyone would know what's going on and could offer suggestions as I have no clue when it comes to programming and all (other than some autoit bits) lol

    Sonicxtacy02 - Let us know what you find out in regards to the Lexus CD.

    W3bMa5t3r - Tell me where and when, and I will send the CD. Another option for delivery of the software would include me creating a simple html document that acts as a digital signature and upon approval of said document the coder would be able to download the ISO (of course I will need to see if I can, in fact, extract the ISO) This would save the time of shipping, especially if this coder is located outside of the US.

    $40 is a very resonable bid for this project, I was expecting a bit more to be honest. I don't know how "Ruby" coders can pay bills like that. I know in web development a 2 week project is going to cost MUCH more than $40 bucks. But of course I am not complaining that the price is lower that anticipated.

    Something that may be important when i was thinking about how to tackle this, that would make this drastically easier is verifying no duplicate entries, for instance lets say somehow IG 3.0 has some POI's that the Lexus doesn't have, if you just use all those those few are gone, and if you just do a mass add of all Lexus POI, then duplicates occur, so backed before it adds each line, search through the file and then see if a duplicate line occurs, if not add, if it does skip it. Or was this already suggested?

    The coder is actually located in Washington State, so if you're not able or choose not to do the digital sig/download, it shouldn't be too bad to send the disc(s). I'll let you know the location though.

    Yeah $40 was really good, that's why I offered the bonus if this was successful. I think it's worth more than that, esp since so many people have attempted this already. If he can do it, he deserves some decent compensation.

    I've already put the $40 into escrow w/ the site, so the coder can begin on the work as soon as he has everything.

    @ SangreDeThor
    I think (I'll have to check) but he had made mention of preventing duplicates. If not, I'll make mention of it. Though... lol it might take the program a long while to check duplicates out of several million entries.. LOL

    $40, thats a really low price. I hope he understands what needs to be done. I used one of these services previously and paid 100 for a simple site with database functions. Also if it does work and the Lexus POI can be extracted into IG how would each POI be input it? It wouldn't be done one by one right?

    @W3bMa5t3r: Taking some time is not much of an issue i think, because duplicates would suck really really bad. It could take 5 hours and i would still be happy, not sure about others, another way around that would be since "everyone" has IG 3 for example purposes, all it takes is one run through to find out what will duplicate and what wont, so that could be built in. Another idea, would be to create a mySQL database (yes at over a million records, it may get sluggish but it wont matter to much) and store all the POI in, and one can easily query that to see if there is a duplicate. that wouldn't take that long once all the data is loaded.

    yeah once we get one POI.bin file built with all the extra POIs, it would be easy to send that around. any additional mods (adding personal POIs) could be done by the individual users.

    Thanks Wired
