    GPS-Based internet data

    Before the changes in RideRunner, I had weather and gas screens that would automatically load data based on GPS location when the screens were initially opened.

    How do I restore that functionality with the latest version of RideRunner? What should the RRCode look like or is it even possible anymore? If so, how can I refine it so it automatically loads based on GPS location the first time I run it , yet just show the exising data on subsequent returns to this screen?

    Can the dev team add a command to the weather plugin called GPSWEATHER? The docs don't show a command nor explain if an existing command performs a GPS-based data download/display.

    I know RRGas has a command, rrgas_gps, and I've figured out how to achieve the above, but a response from Enforcer with his suggestion for the RRCode to use would be appreciated.

    Looking at the new code/plugin it should be exactly the same as before, meaning, just have zips.dat available (so RR knows your current Zip code from the GPS data) and set the localdatacaptureinterval setting accordingly, the weather plugin will read that and auto-update in that interval whenever there's a GPS lock.

    you might want to check the RR source guino i believe someone has broken the gps location stuff. Hasnt worked in a few months for me. I just figured it was scrapped so that someone could do it via plugin

    I thought I remembered this being scrapped, by whom I cant remember. But it had something to do with the zip.dat file and ziplocator.? file something or other. It was adding a lot of confusion. Anyway, just a memmory I think I had.
    maybe Im wrong, who knows...
    This was an awesome feature that has been lost for sometime now though.

    Blue separated the weather plugin, but zips.dat support is still in the core, and the weather plugin seems to have all the code ready for it.. I'll have to try it out to see then.

    How about the Exectlb code that used to work, might help in narrowing down either the issue or what you may need to modify to get it working again.

    If J remember correctly, I believe the RELOADWEATHER command was run after the screen loaded and thats it. Now the reload doesn't do it anymore.

    When I was working in the weather PI last night... I did look and yes the "RELOADWEATHER" cmd looks to see if you have an valid gps AND your locate city lbl contains something and if both true then uses that info otherwise defaults to cityweather setting. If I remember correctly, I didn't change any of that part was just a cut N paste into the PI.
