    iGmod on Mobile Impact

    Just wondering if anyone has tried this great software to enhance iGuidance shortcomings...iGmod Beta 2 release
    Hopefully we can work this in!
    I'm using it on RR and Centrafuse, will try today on MI.

    iGmod

    I tried to get it to work by listing it as my GPS program and MI still opens iGuidance without iGmod. Red does so much now I was not going to ask but since others are interested as well. Got any ideas on how to make it work???

    Altering the gps path doesnt seem to do anything, so I replaced iguidance.exe with igmod.exe and set GPSCLASS=ThunderRT6Form. The program loads fine and embeds, but before it displays media engine errors and says: Media engine error 5 invalid procedure or argument, then goes back to the media engine main menu.

    You mean Mobile Impact error, not media engine right? heh heh.
    Let me first start off by sayin that iGmod is a great concept, and it was very nicely put together. However I have been playing around with it and have come to the conclusion that it performs somewhat poorly for practical use. I feel that the performance problem might make using it difficult if you had to make a quick turn and then it lagged and you missed your turn/exit or something. For the life of me I have not been able to figure out a different/better way to increase the font size on the dialogs and speed display which I applaud your efforts. I have been able to get it to automatically place checks in the check boxes of the speed alert dialog which I notice iGmod doesnt have a menu option for this, and I admit it was very tricky to get it working correctly. I also came up with a way to hide the default iGuidance dialogs as well. I am currently working on a similar interface that won't use any zooming. Unfortunately the speed box and dialogs will have to stay the same font size until I figure out a way to change it. The buttons will be much more graphical however, and it will function pretty much the exact same way that iGmod does, but it will be completely integrated into the program. I have pretty much all of the coding completed on it, I just need to arrange the menus and the graphics at this time. Mobile Impact already has the code written to zoom in and out. Below is a screenshot of how the new module will probably look. I inserted menu and view buttons in the bottom menu.

    I hope the guys/gals from iGuidance are reading this!!!
    They nn to make this more driver friendly! For example, the enter address, I found it almost useless since it's fairly impossible to find an address without a city being entered first.
    Little things like that will give guys that are writing frontend to concentrate on their product not on the navi.

    iGuidance is a great (almost) GPS program. it however cannot read your mind... ya know how many "maple streets" or "37th st s.w." or "broadways" there are in how many cities in the US? it has to know the city first in order to find the street/address you want.

    I just installed 2.1 and it gives you an option of city or street first.

    They are complaining to me because igmod is the only iguidance interface that forces you to skip the city step (which I have fixed in the new unreleased code)
