    Get it here:

    http://home.triad.rr.com/rlwhitt/palm/#da

    Changes:

    • Removed support for Mapquest for maps and directions. All map and direction functions now use Google. Removed the Map Type selection from Preferences. IMPORTANT: If you use the GoogleMaps application it must be in main memory for DA to find it.
    • Added Clear, Contacts, and Airport buttons to the Map Query screen. They work just like their counterparts on the Directions screen. You can also manually enter a 3-letter airport code here or in directions without using the lookup. If you enter a 3-letter code and request Map, the code is validated against the internal list, state and city are ignored.
    • No longer including the NoAir version.

    Excellent. Thanks for continuing to work on such an invaluable application.

    Thanks for the update! I was lost without the directions feature and really missed it and it now seems to work even better with Google maps. Donation just sent via paypal.

    Rick - great app and support. I recommend it to everyone, and that they send you the money instead of $1.50 each 411 call to the carriers.
    Treo 755s in good condition available on ebay for $50-$75. No need to pay for insurance or buy a Pre.

    Any options for someone like me who keeps GoogleMaps on the SD card? The map cache gets to be too big and takes up too much ram. I use Linkstart to swap Googlemaps to/from the card.

    Passing the address to a mapping web site in Blazer was not a bad feature. Why get rid of it?

    Possible future enhancement

    It didn't work. Mapquest mucked up their system so bad they completely broke that ability.

    What about passing the address Google maps through Blazer, like you used to do with Mapquest. Does Google allow such behavior of web-based access to Google maps?

    Yes, it will do that automatically if you don't have the GMaps prc installed, or have it on an SD card where it can't find it.

    In my case (Google Maps stored on card vial Linkstart, DA ver 3.29 is in RAM), tapping Map in DA does nothing (screen blinks and comes back to DA). This is with the browser set to "Blazer" or "Treo Web" (what's the difference?).

    There is no gmaps.prc in RAM (there is a shortcut called Googlemaps**, creator ID: GLM, extension: APPL, created by Linkstart). The actual files are in the directory \Palm\Linkstart\Googlemaps\ directory on the card.

    Shoudn't DA launch Blazer in this situation? It doesn't.

    I have no idea what Linkstart even is. I suspect it's fooling DA into thinking GM started (thus no browser launch), but perhaps there's something extra that it requires to make it work properly that I do not know about.

    "Blazer" was the original Treo browser back in the 300 days. Treo Web is the one that's been in use since the 600. For some reason, Palm decided to keep the title bar saying "Blazer".

    I tried the new version, and used the Maps feature to go to Google Maps (the program). However, when it passed along the address, there were a bunch of random symbols inserted and Google Maps couldn't find the address.
  15. #16  
    I also experienced the garbled characters and not passing the correct address a few times on my 650, but not always. Is it because I do not have the googlemaps.prc in RAM? I do not have it on the SD either. Is it needed in RAM for DA to work properly?

    You guys are correct the stuff in the maps section was getting hosed. Posted a fix just now.

    Linkstart is an application like Powerrun. It creates a link in RAM. Running that link copies the associated files from SD card to RAM. Quitting the application copies the files back to the SD card.

    I verified that when Googlemaps is installed to RAM (like you would normally), DA launches the Googlemaps application correctly.

    When Googlemaps is moved to the card using Linkstart, it leaves a link in RAM called
    Name: Googlemaps**
    Type: appl
    Creator: GLM

    Apparently, this is causing DA to think that Googlemaps is installed in RAM.

    I am curious to know if Powerrun or Zlauncher users who have stored Googlemaps on the card are encountering the same behavior.

    aprasad, I was going to respond this morning but didn't have time. I suspect the same as Rick, in that DA recognizes your GM shortcut as the app itself, but gets short-circuited because that ain't it. I guess cause the shortcut can't pass args/params or something.

    Anyway, I keep GM on the card, too. Use a ZL shortcut. The diff may be, is that GM doesn't get moved back to card unless I use ZL itself or a ZL shortcut. Haven't tried yet, but this has always worked for me before (1 app calling another & passing info to it). So if I launch GM (gets copied to RAM), then launch DA (must already be in RAM cause I can't use ZL or it's shortcuts), it should work.

    Which makes me wonder. Can I use 2 launchers to accomplish the same thing, while keeping both DA & GM on the card???

    Anyway, the downside to this is you have to launch GM first. Not to use it, but just to get it into RAM for use with DA.
