How are you doing with the program? Any news?
Yes, a little delay due to Christmas, but we are back in business. A new build will be available for testers later today or on Monday.
At the moment we have the media playback plug-ins almost complete, I finished the GPS module today (just displaying data and handling comms with the device, not the navigation yet). Small stuff such as clock, stowatch etc is also complete. Main priority for next week is OBD.
YEAH!!!!! can i play wif it please?
its obviosuly a cocoa app - running C as the main compiler but what type of database do you plan on hosting the GPS POI's in?
The POIs are stored in standard .ov2 file, which is widely used by for example TomTom devices.
Since I am waiting for my colleague to finish few bits for the new beta release, I spent few hours on Google maps plug-in for QCar. Despite few problems with the API I encountered, it seems to be pretty usable - certainly for POIs and current position display, possibly also for navigation (in Enterprise version). So we will probably be giving this plug-in away for free as a low-end alternative to the full navigation.
neato, got any more um interface shots with google maps running? if that question makes sense
Those images make the map look like it will be really really small on a 7" screen. Same with video, why is everything so small?
I have a 7" lilliput running in my carputer if you'd like me to test, I'd like me to test too :D
