    My Custom Frontend

    UPDATE: CHECK 3rd page for new version information

    So I was inspired by the Infill Station frontend and I wanted to have it too. But because i am not using infill stuff i will not get it do I . So why not create my own. Inspired by infill I tried to recreate the frontend. Because all the lighting in my car is green I made it green . So what do you guys think is it a good start. Do you like it ?



    with kind regards,

    FG van Zeelst

    Looks awesome to me

    A little constructive criticism, the font seems a little hard to read, but looks cool. And it has no clock, which to me is bad. Other than that, looks great.

    Is this a frontend, or just a skin?

    It is going to be a complete frontend. Still busy programming it. Having a little problem getting destinator to work properly. It is not closing right and gives me a bunch of error because it locks my ini file and can not save it's ini data. But other then that its working nicely.

    As for the clock it is going to be in there. I need it myself two. Still not sure if i am going to create an option to switch between a large clock and the speed thingy or just add the clock to the bottom of the screen any advice.

    As for the font I guess the font for the buttons is going to change still not sure what font to use.

    with kind regards,

    I think the destinator problem has something to do with destinator itself. I wrote a frontend in vb and it behaves like that the second time I try to run it in vb. If i close vb and reopen it it works fine again.
    Failure is not an option...

    Hi thanks for your reply I am indeed reopening it every time but still it sucks. It seems that closing visual basic is the only way to unlock the destinator.ini file. But still its getting developed. Only problem now is to find out how to substract the streetnumbers from destinator and speed ill do a forum search .

    As far as I know there is no way to get the housenumbers from Destinator (I guess you want to present it in a list or something), what I did was to search for the housenumbers. To do this search I started at the lowest housenumber and then keept looping up until the gps coordinated stopped changing (meaning this was not a valid housenumber).

    I hope you understand any of this, if not I could probably give you an example.

    As for the speed I don't quite remember but I think i used the gps data directly but I'll verify it and post it back here.

    The only way to get the speed etc is to control the gps data yourself.. goto www.freedrive.co.uk and download the source from the ftp.. in there you will find how I did it using the drumbuffer or whatever its called.. also be aware of it not routing to the street you input .. this is why I changed it back to using the address dialog input screen again

    Thanks for helping me out ,

    I would definitly would like an example of that borte it would help me alot. Thanks in advance.

    As for using the drumbuffer I will look in to that. Haven't used it yet because it wasn't really clear what it did. What did you mean by it not routing to the street you input CdRsKuLL?.

    With kind regards,
