Hello:

This is a tool to convert and prepare GPX files for Navigation Assistance.
It was born from a wish posted on: http://www.trekbuddy.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1301

Explanation:
It works combined with CMS themes and sounds.
The final solution is a customized Screen where you can see the directions symbols to guide you to turn the correct directions on each waypoint (see picture below)
You can configure voice or sound assistance for your language.
The CMS theme can show the direction icon indexed by the {wpt-sym} tag.


Steps to setup it:
1) Put the CMS theme (see attached on next posts) into the cell phone trekbuddy´s directory "ui-profiles".
2) You need to have a GPX file with the route, or you can use the GM2GPX tool (http://www.elsewhere.org/journal/gmaptogpx/) to retrieve it.
3) Use this tool (see attached on next posts) to filter, calculate and generate the GPX file with the route directions.
4) Put this GPX file into the cell phone trekbuddy´s directory "wpts".
5) Open trekbuddy
6) Configure the "Wpt proximity" parameter into "Settings/Navigation" to 30m or 50m.
7) Open the generated waypoint file
Cool Start the "RouteAlong" feature
9) Goto the customized CMS screen
10) Start the GPS


What you should know:
About the last executable and source code of this tool, go to: http://www.trekbuddy.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=16841#16842
About the last Setup Package, go to: http://www.trekbuddy.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=16841#16843
About the CMS Themes, go to: http://www.trekbuddy.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=16841#16847
About the Voice assistance, go to: http://www.trekbuddy.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=16841#16848


Knew limitations:
- This is a pre-defined off-line assistance. If you get the wrong directions, it is not able to recalculate and inform you the right direction.
- As the directions were calculated between the "last" and the "next" waypoints of the list, if you are coming from another path during the route assistance, the informed direction could not be correct.
- When the waypoint is reached, the next waypoint direction icon is displayed automatically, without check if you have turned the right direction.

Thanks.

PostPosted: Thu Sep 18, 2008 1:23 am    Post subject: CMS Themes for Navigation Assistance Reply with quote

You can make it by yourself or ask to the artist guys at the Themes forum

Basic tags to create a CMS theme:
{wpt-name} - Name of Waypoint
{wpt-cmt} - comment of waypoint
{wpt-sym} - direction symbol font index
{wpt-dist} - distance to the next waypoint

Install it into trekbuddy\ui-profiles directory

Some links of compatible Themes:
176x220:

PostPosted: Thu Sep 18, 2008 1:31 am    Post subject: Voices for Navigation Assistance Reply with quote

You can use sounds or voices for Navigation Assistance.

Example of a configured waypoint in GPX file format:
<wpt lat="39.91474" lon="116.37383">
<name>GRTP-003</name>
<cmt>Waypoint comment, blablabla</cmt>
<sym>5</sym>
<link href="nav5.amr"/>
</wpt>

In this example, the sound nav5.amr will be played when the waypoint is reached.
The sound files should be installed into trekbuddy\sounds directory.

The link can be automatically generated by the tool, using the same index number of the direction symbol font.

You can create your own voice assistance recording your voice with your mobile. The Index list is:
0 - Let´s go
1 - Go ahead
2 - Slight right
3 - Slight left
4 - Turn right
5 - Turn left
6 - Make a U-turn right
7 - Make a U-turn left
8 - You have arrived to your destination
9 - Take the exit
10 - (reserved)
11 - (reserved)
12 - (reserved)
13 - (reserved)
14 - (reserved)
15 - Keep to the right
16 - Keep to the left
17 - Take the 1st exit
18 - Take the 2nd exit
19 - Take the 3rd exit
20 - Take the 4th exit
21 - Take the 5th exit
22 - Take the 6th exit
23 - Take the 7th exit

A great addition to TB. Thanks for all the work you've put in!

One problem with v1.7: I'm now getting the message "Component MSHFLXGD.OCX or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid" (didn't occur with v1.6), so I downloaded the 4 .rar files. They each contain ConvWPT.CAB, setup.exe and SETUP.LST. None of my rar unpackers can extract Conv.WPT. Running any setup.exe gives the message "Please insert disk .".

The previous zip file version seemed to extract OK.

I'm running Win XP with the latest updates.

Hello all:

The ConvWPT has a feature to recognize direction symbols based on waypoints comments.
The installation comes with default Portuguese settings.

In this post I will try to keep links to other languages settings:

Sorry tchelo_mgf, still having problems.

Downloaded all four rar files to C:\Downloads\TrekBuddy\ConvWPT\Setup
Downloaded and installed a trial version of Winrar
Run Winrar
Open archive
Select Setup.part1.rar
Open

Error message:
! C:\Downloads\TrekBuddy\ConvWPT\Setup\Setup.part1.rar: Unexpected end of archive

Extract to
C:\Downloads\TrekBuddy\ConvWPT\Setup
OK

Error message:
! C:\Downloads\TrekBuddy\ConvWPT\Setup\Setup.part1.rar: CRC failed in ConvWPT.CAB. The file is corrupt
! C:\Downloads\TrekBuddy\ConvWPT\Setup\Setup.part1.rar: Unexpected end of archive

setup.exe and SETUP.LST created OK - no sign of ConvWPT.CAB.

Exactly the same error message when I try to extract from any of the four rar files.

Tried to run setup.exe from part 1. Same error message, followed by "Please insert disk ."

Tried a fresh download of the rar files. Still no luck.

Help?

Thanks.

Cactus: ensure you fully downloaded all parts.
C:\Downloads\TrekBuddy\ConvWPT\Setup\Setup.part1.rar: Unexpected end of archive" just means the file/part is short, redownload.
i've done it here and the archive is ok.

but the trouble is. it wont work any longer using wine on a linux box Smile
version 1.6 was working so. but not 1.7. the error message is missing some texts it seems ( from ...), but i cant find what its looking for (did the setup too).

would be nice, if its working using wine again. Smile

ps: thanks for this app anyway.

The problem is that I made several changes with the controls to support UTF-8 encoding and the application becomes more dependent from WindowsXP platform than before.
If it helps, you got the error message because I´m using Forms 2.0 controls instead of common controls.
The setup install the FM20.dll, but I guess Wine will need more system files to run it ... These files are already available on any WindowsXP.

Check if it works: http://www.mono-project.com/WinForms and http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2008/May-13.html
Good luck Confused
