GPS Volume Bug
Found a bug in either RR Config or RR main program (tested and confirmed with RR Config v188.8.131.52; RR build 01-01-2013).
Bug: Selecting "Adjust volume based on speed form GPS" (which is misspelled in RR Config, btw) causes the following behavior in the RR program:
1. Upon initial start or restart of RideRunner, master volume is set to 50%
2. Pressing Volume Up/Down buttons results in click but no volume change (and percentage remains at 50%)
3. If user presses 'Mute' button, and then presses either 'Mute' again, or either Volume button (up or down), then volume functionality returns to normal behavior (i.e. it works)
I've reproduced this behavior several times. Tested and confirmed with CarWings Lite (default skin), fresh installs of both WinXP SP2 (32 bit) and WinXP SP3 (32 bit).
If I un-check the "Adjust volume based on speed form GPS" box in RR Config (GPS Services > Native GPS), RR functions normally.
Note that the test PC has GPS installed, but it's not receiving a signal during testing (the antenna wire is not plugged in, since it's out of the vehicle). However, the software should still not function like this (at least not IMHO).
GPS volume wasnt actually programmed by the CORE RideRunner team...
myself i never could actually test it in realy world...
(for if you dont know, i dont have a carpc, while i do have a gps puck, i just never had GPS volume on)
my advice is turn it off
im sure its buggy :)
but good you solved your own problem...
also noting people have used it, so it must work somewhat.... ill be it im sure with a bug or two
but i did fix the speeling errrorr :)
more i think about it, it might be working correctly
just dont understand it...
i see at 0mph volume is at 50%, thats a setting... so i guess its working
till you figure it out, keep it off, unless someone else understands it more than me, chimes in...
Interesting... if it's WAD. I'll re-test in the car (with GPS receiver) as soon as I can get the PC in there. Should be a few days or so.
Do you have the source code for the GPS parts, or are you skimming?
yes... i have the source, but its a very complicated part of RR, and a bit hacked into RR's code i might add
id just turn it off, besides you only need 1 volume level, thats MAX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
