    GoogleMaps & Microsoft Virtual Earth & Google Sky

    Ok,

    With the help and the authorization of JohnWPB , I create this Google Applications.

    - Google Maps (Trafic , Route and Ruler) , (use Wifi and Gps)
    - Virtual Earth (use Wifi and Gps)
    - Google Sky (use Wifi and Gps)

    The screens are embbeded for the Carwings_Dynamic_lite .


    !!!Each screen with (NEW) in his title is compatible with Carwings_Dynamic_Lite version 1/3/2010 !!!


    Google Maps (Trafic and Route)-(NEW):

    (GoogleMapsTrafic)-The map is updated by your latitude and longitude values.


    (GoogleMapsTrack)-After posting the track, you can to move the white's points and change your itinerary (just push the 'Get Directions' button for to redraw the track)
    You can also don't use the osk but use your finger to choose the position from and to !
    (GoogleMapsRuler)-Push on the button to add a ruler. You can to add as you want !

    Microsoft Virtual Earth-(NEW):


    Google Sky-(NEW):



    In the setting.ini file you can to oblige to read the data latitude and longitude:

    [Google Maps]
    WindowsName=GoogleTraffic
    WindowsTOPoffset=0 you can to adapt the top's window to your screen
    WindowsBOToffset=0 you can to adapt the bottom's window to your screen
    ;OskMenu="menu;googleaddress.skin"
    OskMenu="RUN;$SKINPATH$flytomenu.exe|GoogleAddress 1_flytomenu.skin" or ="RUN;$SKINPATH$flytomenu.exe|GoogleAddress2_flyto menu.skin"

    ForceSettings=no (no, RR's gps data read ;yes, settings Lon and Lat used)
    Lon=2.318459 use this longitude if gps are not found
    Lat=48.863064 use this latitude if gps are not found
    AllLanguage=yes convert the "," from the gps labels in "." .
    ZoomLevel=12


    Unzip the zip file under your skin Carwings_Dynamic :

    Ex:
    C:\Program Files\Ride Runner\SkinName\Scripts\GoogleTraffic\GoogleTraffic.exe
    and
    C:\Program Files\Ride Runner\SkinName\Scripts\GoogleMapsTrack\GoogleMapsTrack.exe
    and
    C:\Program Files\Ride Runner\SkinName\Scripts\GoogleMapsRuler\GoogleMapsRuler.exe
    and
    C:\Program Files\Ride Runner\SkinName\Scripts\VirtualEarth\VirtualEarth.exe
    and
    C:\Program Files\Ride Runner\SkinName\Scripts\GoogleSky\GoogleSky.exe

    The raison is that the programs read the general.ini's skin file who are two folder berfore (..\..\general.ini)
    But if you don't like that , I can add in the settings.ini file a width and height option .
    Copy all skins files who are in the skin folder (under GoogleTraffic folder and VirtualEarth folder) in your Carwings skin folder .


    For the Fun, In Google Traffic, push on the little yellow man and drag move it when your where ... Surprise !!!!
    This is the StreetView function !



    And if you push on your mouse's right button , you can to define a track (from --> to):



    History:
    *****
    V1.6 7/7/2010
    Some adds into GoogleMapsTrack and GoogleTraffic

    V1.5 17/06/2010
    A little GoogleTraffic update
    Now, you can to choose your osk menu (normal or overlay like elcosmenu or flytomenu)
    GoogleMapsTrack are also updated in the last version

    Okay, I manage to embed GTraffic, but RR does not start the googletraffic.exe. If I do it manually, then launch RR, when I click on the button, I can see the map, if I don't do that, just a black screen.

    Also, it does not save zoom settings? Is it possible to add a big + and - buttons on top of the map?

    I have forgotten something .

    add this command in your button exectbl.ini file :
    "load;rrtraffic.skin||RUN;$SKINPATH$\Scripts\Googl eTraffic\GoogleTraffic.exe;GoogleTraffic" .

    The two exe must to be in a path like that:

    C:\Program Files\Ride Runner\SkinName\Scripts\GoogleTraffic\GoogleTraffic.exe
    and
    C:\Program Files\Ride Runner\SkinName\Scripts\VirtualEarth\VirtualEarth.exe

    In Fact , the programs read the ..\..\general.ini file .

    I update the First post !!!

    The exectbl line I had already added, it's in the add to exectbl file.

    I had it unzipped to the carwings folder, so in the end I made it work, but I had to unzip the contents to all possible folders. Only extracting the zip to the carwings folder won't work. Also it won't work to extract it to the Scripts/GoogleTraffic folder.

    If you extract it to all combinations, it will work (but you'll get 4 copies of each file everwhere), so I haven't figure out what goes where yet.

    So far:

    To the Scripts/GoogleTraffic: the TWO executables and the settings.ini
    To the Scripts/GoogleTraffic/Skin: the pictures under the skin folder, but not rtraffic.skin (although it's there in the zipped skin folder)
    To the carwings main folder: all the rest (google icon, etc), and copy the rtraffic.skin too.

    But don't go by me yet, I embed the browser this way.

    I'll get there later today, hopefully!

    Okay, there is a small bug: if the browser window is open, of if it has been recently opened, it will embed the last page viewed, and not google traffic page. If you wait a while after closing the browser, it will work, crazy, but that's what's happening here.

    Also, you don't need the skin folder under googletraffic, you can get away by just copying it to the main carwings folder.

    I would also recommended zoom=12 (in the settings.ini under scripts/googletraffic folder as more useful for those installing the app now.

    It is not a bug.
    RR embbed any program who speal about the same name that you want to embbed .
    So, when you run RR, you must to shutdown all program like explorer or other , and RR embbed well the good program , GoogleTraffic.

    Effectively , the skin folder under GoogleTraffic or VirtualEarth is not necessary . Afer to have copy all skin files in your skin Carwings folder , you can delete them.

    You can to change this setting in the setting.ini file:
    change 'ZoomLevel=5' by 'ZoomLevel=12'.

    Thanks for this feed back .
