    Feature Request: Auto check for gps data

    I've been running this software a few weeks now and its by far the easiest gps tracker for me. One problem i have tho is the program loads before my gps is ready, so each time i start the car i have to open the client up and click connect on the gps side to get it started. Is there any way to make it automatically check for gps data in say, minute intervals to prevent this?

    Here's a "dirty" hack to do what you want.

    Create wimgps.vbs and put the following contents in the file:
    'Begin Script
    '-------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    '1000 Milliseconds per Second, Adjust as needed. (Defaulted at 30 seconds)
    WScript.Sleep 30000
    'Adjust Path to where you keep your wimgps executable
    objShell.Run "C:\wimgps\wimgps.exe"
    '-------------------------------------------------------------------------
    'End Script

    Put a shortcut to this script in your "Startup" folder to replace the wimgps.exe shortcut you have.
