Destinator 3 Frontend v1.1
Edit: Links are back up! Those of you who downloaded it earlier need to get it again
A lot of bug fixes and a few new features bring us to version 1.1 of my frontend :)
Those of you who already have 1.0 installed can upgrade using this:
An optional toolbar can appear at the top of the destinator window
containing the following information
- Current Location (Street/Road Name, City, Zip/Postal Code)
- Estimated Time of Arrival (Including Total distance of route)
- Estimated Time Remaining (Including total distance remaining)
- Winamp Controls (Next, Prev and Pause - Example skin is included)
You can now create custom applications (Sample app included) to
connect to the frontend and control it yourself. Information
(such as Long, Lat, upcoming Maneuvers) can also be retrieved.
See the Developers sub directory for more information.
-Route Generation Function
It's now possible to switch between Quickest and Shortest route
from a button on the menu bar. (Example skin is included)
Most (if not all) functions can be accessed via a customisable
The updated zoombar by weekendowel has been included in this version.
This makes it easier to use on a smaller screen. The previous zoom
buttons have been removed from the default skin (However the functions
are still available for skinning)
A new voice pack (Thanks, CdRsKuLL) has been included as well as
-Size and Position
It's now possible to have the frontend remember the last size and
position of the window. You can either set these as permenant values
to use every time, or have the frontend save the current values
every time you close.
-TMC Traffic Alerts
It's now possible to enable the TMC alert system within destinator. At
the time of writing this is unconfirmed to be fully functional.
-Setup Screen / Skin Chooser
You can now configure the frontend easier using the setup screen. This
screen appears the first time you run the frontend (or after an upgrade)
or if you use the "/SETUP" command parameter.
3 New skins have been included in the package.

ASCII code range. This has now been fixed.

It's now possible to specify an offset value to compensate for such an
event. (Default is 35)
+Various other undocumented bugs have been fixed
