RELEASE: Map Monkey v1.1.3
Edit: Installer has been updated to fix the problems installing over the BETA, Advanced GPS bugs and when closing Map Monkey via the 'X'.
I strongly urge you to back up your maps and delete your C:\DestinatorApps folder before installing this version. If you choose not to, this is the first thing I'm going to tell you to do if any problems arise.

information such as speed, heading and number of satellites

very easy to create your own plugins or embed and integrate
Map Monkey fully in your application.
-Speed Camera Detection
Map Monkey can now notify you of approaching speed cameras.
Cameras can also be easily added or removed from the database
via a buttons on the main toolbar
-Automatic Update of Speed cameras
When connected via the SDK, you can opt to be notified
of any approaching cameras. This is useful for custom applications

also choose to always start in fullscreen.

Most aspects of the infobar can now be edited (fonts, colors,
positions) by modifying the skin.
Each skin can now have it's own individual "Destinator Skin"
allowing you to change the scrollbar / fonts / internal
buttons of destinator without effecting other skins.

As well as Winamp and Frodo control when approaching a maneuver,
You can now optionally mute a sound line on your system.
(Wave, Mic, Line-in etc..)
Buttons can now be added to a skin to control the master volume
-Import Speed Cams into Favorites
On the configuration screen, you can now choose to import all
of the speed cameras of your chosen database straight into
the "Imported Speed Cameras" favorites folder of destinator.
This means they will appear straight on the map rather than
having to wait for them to be detected before showing up.
-Custom Speed Warning
By editing the value in Settings.INI, you can have a custom
speed warning that will alert you when reach a certain speed.
There are now buttons on dialog screens that allow you to scroll
up and down any lists. This helps touchscreen users who find it
difficuilt to use the small scrollbar.
-Camera Warning Sounds
There are different warning sound for each type of speed camera.
Any new types of camera can also have sounds made for them
by creating a wave file and calling it Warning[x]_[TYPE].wav
and placing it in the WAVE folder.

now the default.

-Background image on skin
By placing a "Tile.JPG" inside your skin folder, the image will
be tiled on your skins background rather than a colour.

it's running (and make it visible again upon exiting)

It's possible to import new cameras to the speed camera
database (MapMonkey CSV or PocketGPS CSV) and also export
the current database to a CSV file.

This will help keep directions at a safe & suitable level even
