    carpc software progress

    OK so i started work on a car pc software a couple of weeks ago, here is some progress so far - appologies for poor quality jpg (and also for being crap at designing buttons!)

    Main Screen


    Audio Playlist


    Playing audio


    GPS system (using mappoint2004 - note the gps satellite status above the exit button - also note the red circle; that is the nearest speed camera drawn from a database file)


    using the on screen keyboard to enter an address


    routing to that address


    OBD2 screen still very primitive but showing a few dials that arent really connected up yet!

    well its running fine on my epia so far, i can have the gps tracking during media playback with visualisation and its fine - as i said I will code anything that uses too much cpu in c++, also I am using gdi+ atm not dx.. I'm not planning on "huge heavy media work", drawing buttons and controls isn't heavy media work - maybe any dvd player I write will have to be in C but I haven't got round to that yet as it's the part im least keen to use..

    for example it takes the gps class 11ms to search the entire list of UK camera sites and work out the nearest one, plot it on screen, write the distance and draw a warning if needed.. that's using a multi-threaded approach.. the fallacy that .net code is too slow has to die!
