    Official requests thread.

    Put only your requests here, I will make a new thread for each when I handle it or when it is implemented.

    Thanks

    DASH PC is already very good in the beta. Nevertheless I have desires:
    1.) even provided routes import
    2.) free language selection of the announcement
    3.) destination at run-time indicate/remove (between stop...)

    Regards
    Oliver

    Please focus on finishing the GPS portion first, as this is what got everyone so excited :-) It will also be a huge, huge bonus if it integrates with MediaCar. I'm guessing the later may not be accommodated anymore since the unveiling of the more ambitious VOICES (but I'll keep my fingers crossed).

    Thanks for your had work.

    @S4Per Integrating in MediaCar is still an open option. I am still ready for that

    Excellent . Is there progress in that area? Is Coyote actively working with you on this?

    I did send him a PM to find out if he wanted to integrate the navigation system in MediaCar. He said he will test the app , but nothing after that.

    Auto volume change

    It would be good if VOICES would adjust the volume based on the speed of the CAR. The volume control to adjust would be the master volume (as you want to change everything).

    Configuration would be in the ini file and based upon percentage:

    ; minimum volume percentage level when speed is 0.
    autoaudiomin=15
    ; ratio volume percentage level when speed is <base>
    autoaudioratio=60
    ; the speed value that ratio volume equates to (value can be in mph or kph)
    autoaudiobase=80

    Using these values, VOICES would be able to adjust the volume automaticially every time the speed is updated.

    On startup of VOICES, a multiplier (ratio) would be determined. This would be determined by:

    (autoaudioratio - autoaudiomin) / autoaudiobase = ratio

    (60 - 15) / 80 = 0.5625

    Using this ratio, we can then calculate the volume at any given speed:

    volume = 0.5625 * speed + autoaudiomin

    Speed: 25
    volume = 0.5625 * 25 + 15
    volume = 29.0625

    Speed: 100
    volume = 0.5625 * 100 + 15
    volume = 71.25

    Request for change:

    While driving along on a motorway with car stereo off it is almost impossible to get the car pc to understand the longer commands.

    Computer Re-Route and Zoom work fine, but 'Take Me Home' and 'What is my speed' etc are not so good.

    I am using a headseat microphone and it works well if the car is stationary.

    I would like it if the commands were programmable or there were short versions too. It's nice to be able to impress passengers with the longer versions but when you just want it to do it the shorter ones would probably be easier for the computer to recognise.

    For example 'Computer Speed' for speed, 'Computer Home'

    If possible the best way would be able to change them in the ini file, including the 'Computer' keyword too (just in case anyone calls theirs 'Kitt' or something - not that i do!! )

    Request for New Feature:
    Add new destination:
    i.e.
    You: Computer New Destination
    Comp: Please reconfirm to program new destination
    You: Computer New Destination
    Comp: Choose Place or Postcode
    You: Computer Place
    Comp: Say Place Name
    You: Santa Pod
    Comp: 1st Record Found is 'Santa Pod Raceway' Say OK or Next
    You: Computer OK
    Comp: Planning route to 'Santa Pod Raceway'

    Since there are no installer available, can you please give instruction on how to install the app. Do those DLLs files go into the same direction as the app or how the folder structure suppose to be.

    @MatrixPC The application and the dll are supposed to be in the same directory. Also ther should be 2 sub directory skin and pointers. In the pointers directory put all the pointers???.bmp and in the Skin directory, one directory per skin.

    Hope this helps
