After some months from project start, here it is the first public beta release of my TMC kit for i900.
You'll find a CAB file and a PDF document enclosed. Please read the document before installing the kit beacuse there are some steps to be performed before installing the package.
Actually it was tested with iGo only (both 8.0 and 8.3 versions) and I hope to hear some reports from you!
If someone wants to include this kit into its custom rom, I can give standalone exe, dlls and registry specs.
BETA 2 INSTALLATION ISSUES SINCE JAN 2010: the MS SDK certificates used to sign the AdvFMRadio driver expired on december 2009 and therefore BETA 2 isn't installable anymore. The Beta 3 is ready to test, but I don't own the i900 anymore so ... a public unofficial realease (0.9.5.1) is available to anyone willing to test it. Look at page 23 for details.
BETA 2 RELEASED: as usual, if you have a previous version, uninstall it (read the readme file to find how) before installing the new one.
TO EVERYBODY EXPERIENCING GPS/TMC CRASH AFTER FIRST iGO SESSION:
the problem is not related with iGO 188.8.131.52873 (it shows also with later builds) and the solution is to check SYS.txt file.
You have to add/check spell of:
in [gps] section. Some users have virtserial (missing L). the effect is that iGO (in some way) closes/poweroff/crashes Microsoft GPS mixer leaving it in that state. On the second iGO session TMCSerial is unable to open GPS ports and reports its failure to iGO. Result: iGO shows unavailable TMC (correct behaviour).
I started to work with flywhc from xda-developes to supprt his very promising project. The final objective is to have a common and cross platform (HTC and Omnia at the moment, but open for growth) FM/RDS/TMC stack. This would greatly improve the quality and availability of the software (FM radio releted of course) we are going to see.
Take a look at his thread
