VIGps

GPS Navigator with using a scanned maps and possibility to open a lot of maps together.

  • you can show a current GPS data (Speed, Direction, Longitude, Latitude, Time, Date, Height);
  • you can open any of scanned maps (in a "bmp" or "dib" format);
  • you can calibrate the scanned maps yourself by two calibration points only (left-top and right-bottom);
  • calibrations are stored automatically for every map, you do not need to calibrate a map next time;
  • you can see your route line at the map;

How to use it:

  1. connect your GPS device to your computer by the com-port;
  2. open a Properties Dialog and set you comport's name and a bits per second rate (for example: COM1, 4800);
  3. you will see your position point at the World Map.
  4. open any scanned map file in a bmp or dib format;
  5. point by mouse to the left-top point at the map, where you know the coordinats of that point (where coordinate lines are crossed, or where you have measured a coordinates yourself by your GPS device);
  6. press a right mouse button and input coordinates for that point;
  7. make the same (as in 5, 6) for a right-bottom point anywhere at the map;
  8. now your scanned map is calibrated and you will see your position, speed direction and route line at it;
  9. use a button "Show Route Line" for switch on/off of showing a Route Line;
  10. use menu ""View / Clear calibration points" for new calibration of current map;
  11. use a button "Show GPS Data" for open a GPS Data window;

Hints:

  • you can open a lot of scanned maps, GPS Data, World Maps together;
  • default settings for comport: COM1, bits per second: 4800, data bits: 8, parity: none, stop bits: 1, flow control: hardware;
  • use Property Dialog for setting a comport (Name and Bits per second) and refresh time for active map;
  • maximize a GPS Data window to show a speed and direction as a big symbols (when you are sailing);
