    First impressions follow:

    - I had trouble getting it to connect. Apparently GPSSecure doesnt attempt to connect in the same way as IE does... This poses a problem because it just wasnt updating and I didnt understand... then I clicked on DISPLAY MAP and it gave me the explorer dialing window to connect my GPRS modem, then once I manually dialed through that (just pressed "Connect button" - I also set Connect Automatically option but it appears to not have changed much), then it started sending my position.
    - I got a crash after a while... dont know what happened but the GPSSecure window froze, and I got a "(Not Responding)" appended to the title bar of GPSSecure.
    - We/I need a better way of running this thing... Can it be made to start up and go to system tray, and stay there silently until it detects mapmonkey (i.e. I will run map monkey from within RR), and then make it really try to connect to the gprs and send stuff...

    Finally, this is just a more general request, can you make a web interface for GPS Desktop? That would allow us to check stuff from anywhere... Oh and please Google maps cause Mapquest (I dont know if it is all mapquest, or just mapquest.co.uk) is crap for my area... and I think google maps you can just copy the URL into your page or embed it in the program so we dont need to load a page.

    Thanks! it is very promising!
    The connect automatically button makes it so when you open up the application it will automatically connect your GPS/MapMonkey. I'll add in an option for Windows startup and start minimized with the next release. I'll also add in an integrated google maps. The online stuff is coming (real time tracking). I'm not sure about checking the database with an online system though, I"ll add it to my list though. Sorry about it crashing, I'm not sure what would have caused it to freeze up. You are right, it doesn't connect the same way IE does, it is supposed to silently try and connect to the server, that way you don't get a popup asking you to connect every time.
    Thanks for the suggestions and for testing it out. I am going to be really busy this weekend but I'll see if I can get around to working on those things.

    One more thing to add to your neverending "list"

    The TerraServer maps aren't working again. Back to the white nonsense instead of a pic.

    Are you getting that on the Desktop client or car client, or both?

    I just opened it up with your positions and with some of them it is coming up white and some of them are coming up fine. The ones that are white are the ones where the Urban maps aren't offered. There are very few areas where it won't come up white, usually just the big city areas.

    it was with the desktop client. The areas I was looking at are the Daytona Beach areas. I'll check some others out.

    That would be pretty hard to do.

    Good news techy101, I found out why the car client froze on you. I'm fixing the problem right now.

    Uploaded the new version. It doesn't freeze anymore and now it saves your comport and baud rate like it was supposed to. It has the same name as before.

    Count me in, time to test it since it looks very cool to me

    Suggestion: an option to save all drives to a csv file? Since I use my car for work as well, it might be cool to generate a file something like
    [time left][location start] [time arrived][location end] [drived distance]

    Since I just could print it and get my boss to give me some money for the fuel and so on, i'm still doing it the old way: Writing it all down on paper
