Last week I started this post, but things have been extremely busy. I know, you don't care, but check this out.... Feeliing a little stressed and spending way too much time on work, I did what any respectable technology geek would do, I bought a knew toy. However toy isn't really the right word. No, I purchased a navigational assitant! Visiting the local big box electronic store I found the new Streets & Trips 2005 packaged with a Microsoft branded Pharos GPS 360.
After watching myself drive home using there software, as soon as i got home I decided to try and talk to it myself. With a little code, I was soon receiving all sorts of good gps data with my c# app. Before long, I could extract my current location. Hmm.. what can I do with a such a point? Map Point! I little while ago I singed up for a developer account with Map Point, but haven't had a chance to put it through the motions yet. Before long, I could finally loook and see where I am!
Not quite ready to share the code, but stay tuned.......
UPDATE: Streets&Trips has done an excellent job of guiding me to the Wintellect Devscovery conference in Atlanta. More on that next.
