    Smile Elevation screen for RR

    This new little script give you the slope of the road where you are.

    It's cool in 4x4 or when you are in mountain !
    The screen is just for to give you an example:

    I need to test it in real situation (i have not CarPc).
    If you use it , please say me if this script run well in metre and in miles!!!

    History:
    ******
    V0.5 12/11/2010
    If your altitude is negative, the up or down indicator give the good picture.
    The arrows pictures are on the good skin folder.

    SAPI Vocal Alarm Option
    (This version is already compatible with the v0.3d WEBRADIO script that add a WEBRADIOTRACKNAME label)

    V0.3 08/09/2010
    Now the vertical slider give you the slope between +45 -45
    (Thanks to JohnWPB for this good idea and thanks to the french autoit forum for his help!)

    Where can I download? Where do I install the script? Where does the script get the info? GPS? Sensor?

    Also elevation here in the U.S. means distance above sea level. Grade would be the slope of the hill you are on. I also only have it on my test computer, but will check it this weekend.

    This looks promising, and a nice bit of information to have available.

    I have found a few problems though, sorry.....

    - The GPSSIGNAL sliders are missing from the .zip file
    - The images in the top right are also missing from the .zip
    - While sitting still (GPS hooked to my desktop PC) I am getting really crazy readings for the % of incline. (2627% incline?! haha) It look like it needs some sort of error trap to only read between 0 and 90 degrees. BTW, I have 9 satellites locked when I took the screen capture.

    On another note, I think it would be better to use the RR sliders instead of using the old style individual image ones. This way the slider bar would move up and down.

    Oh, and Yes, that 37 feet altitude is correct, as I live in South Florida, and it is pretty much FLAT here

    It is actually pretty easy, being you are using a script to calculate the slider bars already.

    Put this line of code in your skin:

    S,725,77,70,447,720,77,60,447,v,01,"Bar.png",60,"$ ElevSlider$",

    Now, in your script you just need to set the limit of the $ElevSlider$ variable to be between 0 and 65535. For instance 32767 would be the very center, or the middle, of the slider.

    Being there are 20 steps of this slider, the formula to calculate it would be

    $ElevPosition = ($YourNumber * 65535)/20
    rr.Execute ("SetVar;ElevSlider;" & ElevPosition)

    Where your number is between 1 and 20. It is best to round the number up to 1 so there is no division or multiplication by 0.

    To test it to see how it works, its best to put that line in a skin, and in the skin tool fire the command SetVar;ElevSlider;32650. By changing that number you will see the slider move in the skin. Once you see that, it should be fairly simple to figure it out
