  hi,Thanks for making tangogps,

  limit(so when the speed goes red), because last time I used
  tangogps(during the last summer hollidays) When I was in a car the speed
  limit was about 50Km/h.That's fine in a city but not on a highway(about
  130 Km/h in France)
 
 perhaps multi-coloured would be useful?
 
 green or black of it's under the urban limit (configurable), orange if
 it's over the urban limit but under the motorway limit (also
 configurable), and red if it's over the motorway limit

Interesting: I wasn't even aware that the speed-indicator changed
colour at all, because it changes between black and a colour that I
(and many other people) cannot see.

If there was a configuration option, then I might have noticed
the feature that way--and even found it useful :)

I'll make that configurable in one of the next versions of tangoGPS.

 I find it very irritating and it does cover a large portion of the
 screen...

That is due to a suboptimal dpi setting of your screen. The fact that
the screen is physically 285dpi does not mean that the Xserver has to
be set to this value - I guess nobody is professionally using the Neo
as a CAD front end. 

For a normal user the right size is a mix between screen dpi and
distance of the screen to the eye. The Freerunner's screen dpi is very
high but you will roughly hold it half an arm length away from your
eyes while your desktop monitor will be about twice that far away.

Taking this into account a dpi setting of ~140-150 will result in a
well readable 10-12pt font. But instead some distributions chose to use
silly values like 3.5 for the terminal font which result in device
dependent settings.

Compare it to a huge billboard advertising: they are printed with very
low dpi but due to the much larger viewing distance this is compensated.

tangoGPS is made to be device independent and given reasonable values
it should always display well.


 Also, while you're at it, the numbers on the scale (bottom
 left corner) have non-transparent background and this covers up a
 little of the map and most of the scale ruler.

This is the same problem, some distributions have insane settings for
the dpi which makes the font appear too big.

 Just a note. ;)

All righty, I'll make it configurable :^)

 Cheers,
 Vasco.


Regards,
Marcus

tangogps 0.99.1

2009-11-22 Thread Marcus Bauer

Hi out there,

the latest release of tangoGPS is out. New features include:

 * a revamped layout - better usage of screen estate on the Freerunner
   and much nice layout on netbooks and laptops

 * route tracks - you can now fetch route tracks from the web using
   three different webservices


I have made a ARM EABI binary (only the binary, not a package).

The full news with screenshots on http://www.tangogps.org/


Have fun!

Marcus
