Atari800 just released an Unofficial MapThis over at PSP-News.
Go here to check it out.
Here's a download link for those who isn't a member at PSP-News:this is unofficial Map This!
Deniska, In7ane, MIB.48 (and maybe others) are the REAL brilliant wizards behind this. There is mind-boggling math in this to interpret coordinates, speed of map movements based on zoom factors, how to rotate a map and point up based on direction you are travelling...blah blah blah
There is no way I could ever come close to trying to develope any of that.
I just added some little features - I am not a C programmer - I got TONS of help from google and the code they provided.
But if you see any of them on the boards - tell them how cool of a program this is and thank them for there pain-staking efforts to create such a project.
Now enough kiss-assing <grin>
This is based on 4.99 beta
#1 added speech for:
searching for satellites
satellite found and fixed
*only does this once when starting up
#2 when you go GPS mode on
I automatically drop CPU to 111 mhz
once your fixed - I bump it back up to 333mhz
#3 It speaks to you
left turn ahead
right turn ahead
arrived at destination
#4 Adjusted the warning distance based on the speed you are driving
*adjust WARNINGDISTANCE=30 in config file for how much area to search when
at a stand still. If you go 20 miles an hour - the warning distance is 50
#5 Placed circle around you to show warning distance when driving - you can
see the area get bigger as you drive faster and smaller as you slow down.
Note: you can change any of the voices - they are MP3 files in the system direcotry
128 bit 44khz - I set it to mono but stero is ok too
Note: speaking doesnt work ibn TOP UP mode - searching for and found satellite works regardless
What am I working on next?
Since the warning distance is just a circular area around you - a small neighborhood can have lots of lefts and rights, all of which can fall in your parameter. With me? Thought not...but anyways
I want to see if I can take the BEARING (direction we are going) and look ahead only - like blinders on a horse so I dont read what I am not looking at
Also - going into a small neighborhood with lots of quick lefts and rights - I want to add a merging phrase to make a sentence. Still with me? thought not... <grin>
Ok so you are driving "turn left ahead" you hear
10 seconds later you hear "turn right ahead"
1 second later you hear "turn left ahead"
After 2 seconds of silence (maybe 1) if there are no updates - next direction read normally
If within 2 seconds there is an update - append to 2 directions with "and then a"
you are driving "turn left head" you hear
10 seconds later you hear "turn right ahead and then turn left"
This may could also be my last build too
Please do not request features from me- like pinging for wifi hotspots and mapping them, or build in a video player so you can watch a movie without losing tracking. (Actually that would be cool especially if you are highway driving and not much going on)
There are probably bugs all over this - "if you dont like it - dont use it"
or better yet "you got what you paid for"
Thanks Deniska and friends!! You guys rule!!
This works with the official PSP GPS Reciever and Custom Firmware 3.40 OE
Atari800 just made a little update: "UP MODE" speaking and startup music
