Does the GPSDrive work with the InDashPC? It seems like you'd need a bigger linux distro and likely a hard drive to hold a decent amount of map data?

I'm working now on having it accept roadnav.
GPSDrive is strictly bitmap based which is a lower pic quality and manageability.
I hope all the maps can be placed on USB stick or DVD-ROM. US can fit at least.

I see everybody asking about drive size...why not get a 8GB Compact Flash Drive...4GB hard drive in this computer was big enough to hold an entire US map plus Win2K

Has any additional work been done on Roadnav or any other navigation software integrating with Indashpc?

I am starting a project and navigation is on of the key parts of it.

Thanks

Something happening here?
Is navigation an issue for PyCAr?

Just asking.

Not too much happening. Did some testing with roadster which worked well. No more than that really Sad

I tried the link to roadster, but the link is dead.

Is it possible for you to make this availible in your distro?

Preciate your answers!

roadnav is one of live projects, and is doing just fine, the only problem to use it with pycar, is that it requires wxwidgets support that is rater typical for gtk2 environment and it takes too much to port it to simple directfb. Same with roadster project, that actually is very promising, but kind of dead, it needs some programming for routing, and it uses cairo to render maps (there's cairo2 lib for gtk to use, but again it requires gtk itself to be ported for directfb to work with pycar).

Jbors, did you think to make a full distro with Xorg env, and pycar as a frontend so some projects like mentioned above could be easily embedded?

Making XOrg stuff working fast is not trivial task. It could be done at the background once the main interface started.
I was thinking about it but no progress there yet Sad
