Awesome trying this out today
- fixed the internet bug (it seems)
- also i made it so that when clicking exit the popup does not appear
- clicking exit also sends a Cancel Command to Roadrunner thus allowing the app to be run fullscreen if desired
Temporary release - Gas distance not enabled but works when it is and moved instruction screen

On my CarPC with no Internet I get a different problem. Where it crashed previously now when I press "Search" it locates the zip code but that is it. No city name and no gas stations.
I can try the carpc with Internet this evening.
it is working correctly thenOriginally Posted by pshadwick
the city name and station ifo is requested via http (url)
glad to see it fixed it
now to figure out cacheing
Update 05-16-06 Beta 0.6.5
- Made Inno Installer
- Cacheing support of previously ran stations (with the exception of geocoding)
- Geocoding option (see zipsettings.ini) Default True
- Fixed no internet bug
- Removed Black instruction screen on initial load
- Fixed Serial Port Bug
- Removed horizontal line It was causing alignment problems
if geocoding fails it returns city center or inaccurate address
Based on the need to have Internet always available for this application I just updated to unlimited data on my cell plan. This app. is what makes it worthwhile.Originally Posted by lostreception
I like the idea of directions to the gas stations (your post 40), although I'd like it for all 4 stations listed. Address and direction (perhaps point N, S E, W, SE etc) and distance (as you showed).
Perhaps a button to sort by nearest location or lowest price (for your selected grade).

the station will be to the east and it will say west
the station will be south east and it will say north west
OR it will work fine but i havent figured out how to fix it yet
sorting i will implement as soon as possible
I notice the image isnt displayed for Phillips 66 even though there is an image in the folder.
What is the syntax for the images, can I add new ones? (MFA is big locally).
Removing the line eliminated that problem, but at full screen the text related to the station and the station info is a bit disjointed. Might need a box around each station?
Thanks very much for the donation its appreciatedOriginally Posted by pshadwick
can you post some screenshots of what you mean by disjointed
hi, this is an amazing tool congratulations. i am trying it on my desktop, how come the distance are all the same for all gas stations (7950.2 miles away) and why so far away? did i miss any settings? zip is correct, it picks it up from mapmonkey, address seems correct too. thanks
