    Question GPS Speedometer

    Hey. I am looking for a GPS based speedo that displays full screen. I like the one included in the 'InCar Terminal' front end but I want a standalone app. Basically a full screen GPS speedo, ideally that looks like an analogue speedometer.

    Quite easy to do, if you have the GPS signal split so the app has its own COM port.

    Are there any that display in MPH rather than Kilometers? I'll try downloading the files and see if it's just an easy edit to the skin that'll do it.

    Change image files

    It looks like it only needs an editing of the png file (or files if you want different skins) to make it Mph. I will do this if I get time but if someone else wants to then please post it up

    *EDIT* I can't get this to run, everytime I try I just get an error "GPSspeedo has encountered a problem and needs to close"

    *ANOTHER EDIT* I didn't have .NET framework installed, but now I do I get the error "Application has generated an exception that could not be handled". Any ideas?

    Try this prototype. http://www.lawlai.com/mp3car/GPSApps.zip you should run GPSConfig to set up the INI file, it will save it int he app directory. Then run GPSSpeedo while the GPS is active. Just a rough prototype, source code in Delphi available to anyone who would like to take it further.
