GoogleMapsGuidance - Send a location to your car!
So I saw this cool feature (Here) and thought, why not make this for everyone? So I compiled a little program that allows you to send a destination from any computer via Google maps to your car GPS system...
Instructions for Use and Screen Shots:
+The GoogleMapsGuidance program (from this post)
+The iGuidance coordinate mod (included with GoogleMapsGuidance)
+A free Gmail account
+Some sort of internet connection in your car (doesn't need to be always active)
+Download and unzip the program folder to any location you choose.
+Sign up for a Gmail account to be used for GPS. I don't recommend re-using an address you are using for other purposes.
+Open "mpoprc.txt" and add your Gmail account information:
user YOURGMAILUSERNAMEHERE+replace "iGuidanceUMPC.exe" with the included version or follow the instructions from lostreception to patch iGuidance to accept GPS coordinates (make a backup copy first).
Instructions for Use:
+Follow the instructions on my site.
+Send a proper Google Maps email to your GPS Gmail account.
+In your car with iGuidance running, launch "googleMapsGuidance.exe" to go to the most recently emailed location. (you may have to allow "mpop.exe" firewall access to download the email)
+Give your GPS email address to people you know and they can send you locations on request.
Special Thanks To:

So everybody, please try this out and let me know how it can be improved. I am planning on adding the ability to store several sent locations instead of just the most recent one.
If the download contains a single file with no extension, add the ".zip" extension to the end of the file name to fix it.
