In-Car navigation for the Psion 5
If you own a routeplanning program (such as RoutePlanner on the Psion or
MS AutoRoute on the PC), you've undoubtedly found yourself peering hastily
at tiny lists of directions when stopped at traffic lights, trying to find
your place before the lights change. CoDriver takes the directions produced
by your routeplanner and presents them to you in clear, screen-high text
junction by junction. It will even read them out to you! Step through the
instructions with the spacebar, or connect a GPS and have them read out
automatically as you approach each turn.
Imports directions from standard routeplanner programs - including
Palmtop's RoutePlanner and StreetPlanner on the Psion or Microsoft AutoRoute
on the PC.
Step through the instructions with the spacebar - single tap goes
forward, double tap backwards.
It speaks! - instructions are read out, telling you in which direction
to turn, then how far to follow the new road for.
Its all automatic with a GPS - attatch a GPS and, based on how far
you have travelled, the Psion reads out the directions and updates the
screen at the appropriate moment.
Don't get lost in the dark - backlight turns on with each new instruction.
CoDriver is shareware - download a copy now and try it out. The unregistered
version is fully working. If you like the program, registration
costs £15 and entitles you to continued use, email notification of
future versions, removes the "nag" screen, and encourages me to
continue to develop the program!
|New in 2.05
Now compatible with Palmtop's own GPS.
Bug fix deals with a problem causing "hanging" with
one particular turn direction.

IMPORTANT note to users with non-English versions of RoutePlanner. CoDriver
will work with French, German, Dutch and Italian versions of RoutePlanner/StreetPlanner,
but it's menus and speech remain in English (with the exception of the
Dutch and German versions). If anyone is interested in recording their
own language version of the sound files, please let me know and I can advise
you how best to go about it. I can then make them available here or link
to your own page if you prefer.
You can read the Help File online as well as
installation details and development history.
