    Need Testers for Mappoint embedded Navigation System

    Hi,
    I have just finished testing Alpha version of Voice guided Navigation system. I need some testers for testing the alpha version. I don't want to release till some of you have tested it and given a green signal. As you must be aware that Mappoint does not support turn-by-turn direction by default I have found a work around and seems that it works most of the time, expect when the turns are very closeby its not very accurate. Also its not easy to find wheter you made the turn or not. Here is the list of main feature it supports as of now.

    1) auto zoom in at higher speeds.
    2) Voice guidance for the next turn when you are near the turn , the distance depends on your speed. Also if you are using winAmp it will pause it for the guidance and resume again later
    3) Configurable Autorouting feature
    4) Voice commands support:
    "Computer" to get into the listening mode
    and the commands are
    a) Zoom in
    b) zoom out
    c) Guidance off
    d) guidance on
    e) When is the next turn
    f) Reroute
    eg "Computer Guidance off" will switch off the voice guidance
    5) Supports skin

    Presently compiled and tested in W2K
    For testing you will require the following
    OS: win2k/xp with speech engine installed (haven't tested on win98 so not sure)
    Harware : GPS mouse and of couse the carPC
    software: Mappoint 2002

    Also you will need either a keyboard or OSK to enter the route.

    You can now download it from http://212.19.79.238/~satish/
    ThanX to Skippy76


    Warning: Its a alpha version so expect a lot of bugs

    Regards
    Satish

    wow this works like a charm. This is the best thing to happen to mp3car since media car. PM coyote and get this intergrated into mediacar as the defualt mapping software.

    I would really like to see this integrate within MediaCar as well. What do you think about that SilentAdmirerer?
