    Lightbulb Preload maps from simulated drive

    Does StreetDeck has (or is planned to have) an ability to test-drive or simulate created route?

    In this case, with Virtual Earth on, it would cache VE images along the route for offline use while real driving...

    god_of_cpu did mention a few weeks ago that he was running a gps simulation to demonstrate virtual earth integration maby he would be kind enough to give us this app.

    Streetdeck simulation relies on recorded data.

    Sure, got it...

    But I meant, actually, not simulating for test purpose but something like this (within StreetDeck environment):

    • Go to Navigation module
    • Create and calculate route
    • Click some sort of "Simulate driving" (instead of "Begin Navigation") button
    • StreetDeck starts to simulate driving along created route (optionally with higher speed)


    This usually is being used for on-shelf demonstrations of in-car navigations in stores/exhibitions (maybe not a big advantage ), but would help SD to pre-cache VE images along the route

    This might be better served in another thread, however, as I was investigating the Kyocera KR1 and Verizon, I've found that Verizon has explicitly stated that the Kyocera KR1 is an unauthorized device and violates their user agreements and TOS. Have you guys run into any issues with this device on their network? I have no idea how they would even know (short of passing the connecting PC's MAX address along), just a little concerned before I make a plunge into $60+/mo territory that's legally sketchy

    You shouldn't be worried about Verizon agreements. By the way MAC adresses can be cloned or spoofed. Anyways you'll be using PC cards' MAC address anyways and that's the only one that's gonna show up at Verizon's front office database. Same goes for sprint:

    Spoof your MAC address for Sprint PPC:

    This is useful when the WAP has MAC-based access control and your laptop's MAC address is already on the list. This method might allow you to set your PPC MAC to the same as your laptop.
    backup your registry.
    go to "\HKLM\Comm\WLLUC461\Parms\NetworkAddress" and enter the address you would like. As noted below this doesn't change the card address and it doesn't last but it will allow your PPC to log onto a DHCP server with a different MAC address.

    Question, #3, how can they patent something they did not create? Something that has been used on PDA for a long time.

    Exclamation Navigating with Virtual Earth on

    During the tests of European version I've run into this:
    StreetDeck sometimes does not load all new portions of VE aerial map for the displayed area, while displaying progress of loading as "complete" (no white bars at status panel)

    See pictures (taken while floating around London suburbs):






    While loading of the image of most of the area has been taking a couple of seconds, missing areas do not update and stay for minutes...

    Chuck: could it be that you have some timeout to receive all the parts and missing part arrives too late?

    Another moment - from my impression, the more tiles of the image are about to be recieved the more probability to have something missing.

    Did anybody else experience this?

    How could microsoft patent something they didn't create (double-click) ?
