    Hello

    briefnotion,
    i have a Earthmate GPS receiver, one of the older ones would you program work on it??

    I do not have any map or any thing for it, I cannot afford most of the program for the GPS out there so I am looking for one that will work for mine.

    Yours looks like a very good one and it looks lie it would be one I would like to use, but would it work with what I have..

    It is a Earthmate Hyperformance GPS receiver from DeLORME.

    So could you please tell me if it your GoogleEarth GPSR would work with waht I have and what I need to do to make it work, I am a nOOb when it comes to GPS's lol, but I could use it in a big way, I do a lot of travelling so I could really use it..

    Thank you..

    Dragon...

    The truth is I couldnt tell you if your GPSR would work or not, but i am really interested in weather or not it does. Try it out and let me know. All right?

    Considerations

    Three weeks ago I posted a set of improvements I that I thought CommTest2 should have. Some where implemented, some weren't. Here is the list, plus a few more.

    • Auto Comm port Connect
    • Auto Comm port search. The Magellan assigns a different comm port to different usb ports. I dont want to reconfigure the pc when I get back into the car.
    • Point of interest placed at current location with a keystroke.
    • Audio alert when sat signal is lost.
    • Customizable icons.
    • Velocity alerts. Things like, "velocity is over 55 and increasing." Good for speed traps. An alert could be set at 35, 45, 55 70 and let you know when youve passed the speed.


    I'd like to open another poll but thats not possible. I dont have any plans on writing any more code, well, at least no particular plans, so if anybody needs anthing then post it.

    CommTest2 (build 10023) available

    Minor Updates

    0.2.7.1 (July 3, 2006)

    Replaced say text "couldnt execute file." with "Couldn't execute file."

    Corrected an error that would cause the program to crash if you tried to change the "Open Google Earth" parameter while connected to a serial NMEA device.

    The Settings window will now show on top of the other windows.

    Menu "Label" items are now more visible.

    Lightbulb CommTest2 (build 10024) available

    New feature, menus will autocreate from directory. The menu.text entry is "D" then on the next line the directory name. The menu system wasn't quick enough. When I went out I created the file set and put them in a directory anyway. The set was always the same and I didn’t want to edit text files everytime I planned to go somewhere. Plus, when I did plan to go I only took 15 mins to get together. Solution, Auto menus. Execs, web pages, batch files are execute. Links too, so that you don’t have to finagle with parameters if you have already made a good shortcut. KMZ files are loaded into GE, and KML files are loaded as guide, directions list. Don’t expect to load a kml without an embedded line, it just won't work.

    0.2.8.0 (July 4, 2006)
    Created Auto Menus from directories. The menu entries is "D" then on the next line the directory path. The menu path will be created and items will be assigned as follows: "html" "htm" "mht" "lnk" "exe" "bat" "kmz" files will be executed, "kml" files will be loaded as guide or leg list, subdirectories will be treated as new auto menus.
    Menus are now longer so that long labels don't get truncated.

    Google Earth Cache

    I understand you can cache the google earth maps so you can navigate without an internet connection.
    I'd like to cache them on one machine (with a fast internet connection) and move them to my CarPC. Can anyone tell me what directory and file extension Google uses for the cache.

    I tried running CommTest using the log data you created around Baton Rouge but my CarPc's internet connection (via cellphone) is too slow to draw the maps as you drive around.

    I'll try it tonight as I drive home, but if you were really driving on 5-10mph (as the log showed). I doubt it will keep up when I drive home at 70mph.

    I found a file called dbCache.dat in Local Settings. Does this one file hold all the cached data collected on that machine?

    OK, I guess I'm replying to my own post (Is that bad?).

    I copied the dbCache.dat and index from one PC to another but it does not seem to have worked. As far as I can tell it is not picking up the cache, insead it is reloading (very slowly) from the internet

    You might want to wander the GE forums:
    http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/ubbthreads.php/Cat/0

    I found this:
    http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/showflat....03/Main/348432

    And then this is on the GE site itself:
    http://earth.google.com/support/bin/...423&topic=1151


    Make sure you have the right DAT & INDEX files.
