setting time from GPS
I've found a little app that will set the computer time from the GPS is this something that could be added to RR or is it even worth it?
Thats the web site I found the app on, what do you guys (and gals) think?
not that i'm volunteering to do it as programings not my thing I wish it was:)
to be honest, it would be an easy thing to code into RR, wouldn't need any extra programs, as long as RR is set up to get the GPS data, this would normally mean having a port slpitter to split the data between RR and your navigation program.
note to self: have a look at FreeDrive source and see if that can be added to that. :)
I have posted a similar thing on the freedrive site cos i wasn't sure weather it should be a FD thing or a RR thing
Well it all depends on what you are using. It would be nice to have the option.
I mean if you are using FreeDrive and it has the option, the RR having it isn't necessary. However if you are using iGuidance, or any other Navigation where there is no local development, then you would need your Front End to have it.
Anyway I have the FD source open in front of me, so will have a look.
This could help a bit... source in VB...

I've added such option for next release, it will adjust the time based on the time zone setting on windows. Before you ask, there's no way for me to detect the current GPS position's time zone unless somebody finds a way to convert Lat/Lon to time zone (i.e. table, etc).
Well this is a good thing
I have to set my pc clock every time I start it up – needs new battery
So I guess this will put off changing it even more:lol:

VERY nice Quino! This will come in VERY handy for those of us that do not use the Internet in the car (except for the rare occasion to look up something through our cell's ect).
