    Exclamation Updated Destinator: with Speed/Bearing, Winamp control and Speed Camera Database

    I've been busy...again!

    First a screenshot...I think you can figure it out



    Download it here

    Basically...put the .jpg and .skin files in your skin directory and put the other files in your MediaCar root folder.

    Go into MediaCar Setup, and then under GPS, change the "External GPS Location" to point to the ExternalDest.exe file, and make it run embedded, with a search string of *externaldest*

    When you run GPS, use External

    If you're playing music, you can also control previous/next track..i couldn't quite figure out volume yet


    Update 08/03/2004 11:40am
    Fixed:
    Was not loading, hanging using 99% CPU power, due to no skin files. Fixed. Now gives error messages if it can't find the skin files.

    Update 08/03/2004 16:55pm
    Fixed:
    Bug i introduced in last "fix" which set the analog dial to a set place..it was my testing
    Added:
    Can now define image files for both KM and Miles, and the range for each.
    Can set whether you want to display in Miles, Kilometers, or use Destinator settings. Change the U section in the .skin file to M, K or D as required.
    Will check every 10 seconds for MediaCar being open. If it's not open, then the program will close, so that it can be opened again the next time you start MediaCar. This also means it won't run if MediaCar isn't open

    Update 13/03/2004 11:40am
    Fixed:
    Task bar appears when you click in the app.
    Analog Speedo will not display until Destinator is fully loaded, and This means it won't show one graphic, then switch to another (this was annoying me more than you I guess )
    Added:
    Ability to set it to 3d mode on startup. Change this in the .skin file if you don't.

    Update 05/04/2004 10:10am
    Added:
    Now reads from the UK Speed Camera database, and shows a visible warning, and plays a sound file when you are approaching a speed camera. Due to Destinator, it can't show exactly where the camera is, but it will help for you to be a little more aware Other countries can just add a .csv file with the columns Longitude,Latitude

    OK, i've been experiencing a problem with this, and the original version of this app - please reply if you have had the same thing:

    I use standby, when coming out of standby about 20% of the time Destinator will say theres no GPS and then a short while later the whole app will crash - allthough MC is still OK - a reboot is needed to fix this. Using destinator on its own never produces a problem.

    I also remember this happening with hibernate...

    anyone else seen this?

    I take it you will need destinator for the speed camera warning to work? (not much chance of me getting that for a while)

    Glad it can help you out

    And with regards to D3...all I can say is, we'll find out if/when it's released.

    Nice work Gary,

    Great to see the speed camera support!

    I d/led the sdk and then got D3 (pocketpc) from eMule and am using those maps, I say using but that is basically untrue, some ******* in Hong Kong still hasn't sent my mouse i bought 6 weeks ago. Do you know if these maps will work fine, they load up ok but i cant really test them?

    I was wondering if you had any plans on integrating auto zoom or auto vol functions that some people have referred to?

    Cheers
