hmmm any command-line args for gps software?
anyone know if ANY gps software runs also with command lines??? (many of you probably know where I'm going with this)
You know long ago where I asked if anyone knows of a mercedes-like gps software where you move a cursor to select from an alphabet to slowly select and click letters to type out the names of cities, street names, and states... (very much like typing out your name on a playstation game or typing in a password for the original Metroid on the NES)
What if someone did (I know I know this is overdone) a FRONTEND using VB to display the entire characterset for someone to use either a mouse or cursor keys (or keypad) to click on things one by one, and then when "enter" is selcted, VB will run the command line (and minimize itself hehe) to play out the mapping software to automatically map out a route from your current location as indicated by the GPS module. When the route is driven through and the user closes the program, the VB program can "restore" its window size or close entirely.
This can help avoid having the entire mini keyboard in the car... still very cumbersome, hard to hide, and if wireless, the batteries die in winter and cold weather.
just a thought
