    GatsoHunterRR

    Hi,

    I've taken the source code to GatsoHunter as written by James @ Ignatu & modified it to do the following:-

    DONE
    * Obtain NMEA data direct from RoadRunner via RoadRunner SDK
    * Music volume/pause/mute via RoadRunner SDK
    * Call camera alert skin when camera is imminent
    * Feed back information to RoadRunner

    TODO
    * Release Source Code (all source will be available soon, when it proven working)
    * Implement voice mute/unmute
    * implement voice volume
    * implement speed sensitive alert timing
    * alert only on configured cam types


    DOWNLOAD


    For pop up cam alert screen in Road Runner, do the following:-

    1) Add the following to you ExecTBL.ini. This file exists in the RoadRunner home directory. If its not there, create it..

    / GatsoHunterRR Support

    "GHRRCAMALERT","",external_gps.skin
    "GHRRCAMALERT","",camalert.skin
    "GHRRCAMALERT","MENU;camalert.skin"
    "GHRRCAMALERTCANCEL","EXIT",camalert.skin
    "GHRRCAMALERTCANCEL"," "

    2) Copy the contents of the skin directory into the directory containing the skin that you're using

    3) Run GatsoHunterRR.

    I'll keep this post updated with latest releases.

    In line with James's wishes, I'd like to point out that this modification to GatsoHunter is known as GatsoHunterRR and is not a new version of his original software. Please read his license on his web page here.

    Hi!

    Im real glad someone is picking this up!
    Gatsohunter is working okay, but it does give a lot of warnings about Cam's that don't matter. Do you think you could make the program a bit more sensitive?

    I'll post some thoughts up later.... but its about expanding this app for more than just speed cameras because its already able to capture GPS data, decide on an action ( eg a POI ) and perfom a reaction... eg an alert.

    I think there are a number of speed camera related changes that could be made also ( eg feeding back to RR the speed camera infomation and alerts so they can be displayed in a skin )... and so on.

    Here's what I'm doing in the latest version. Going to test it tomorrow.

    1) When camera is in range, GHRR announces like it always has done but also fires this event:- "GHRRCAMALERT"

    2) When camera has gone out of range, it fires:- "GHRRCAMALERTCANCEL".

    3) The following labels are regularly updated

    CUSTOMGHRRWARNING - WARNING, Safe or Near
    CUSTOMGHRRCAMINFO - Info string
    CUSTOMGHRRCLOSE - Number of close cameras
    CUSTOMGHRRCLOSEST - Distance to closest camera

    4) The following indicators are regularly updates

    CUSTOMGHRRREDLIGHT - ON/OFF depending if the hazard is red light cam
    CUSTOMGHRRSPEEDCAM - ON/OFF depending if the hazard is a speed cam

    This looks real nice, just hope someone makes some nice skins to then...

    so, tested this one earlier when u posted it in the FU thread... downloaded the original GatsoHunter and it's working, starting up, loading my swedish speedcams and so on... but when I try to start the RR version I get this:

    Code:
    ActiveX component can't create object (Err no:429 Source: GATSOHunter)

    Hmm, it worked for me straight away after I put it on the carpc. Not sure what the cause of your problem is - perhaps someone can help? Guino?

    hmm... Do I need to run it from RR in some way... I was trying to get it to work on my other PC without RR as a first step to see if it was working... before moving it out to the car!

    doh.. just read the first post again:
    It should invoke RoadRunner if its not already running & start to receive GPS information from it.
    the error is probably cuz I don't have RR installed on that comp...

    Yep, that'd do the trick

    Don't forget to tell RoadRunner what port your GPS is on. You can do this from RRConfig | GPS | GPS Port.
