This download is for both the registered and unregistered version. When you
register you will get a code, which you enter into the program to remove the
startup delay and nag phrases. Other than delay and nags, there is no difference
between registered and unregistered.
- Have you created an interesting template?
Send it to me and I'll include it here.
I don't like the term "bugs" - I prefer
"opportunities for improvement." If you find any
opportunities for improvement in GPX Spinner,
send me an email,
and I'll try to get it fixed. Keep in mind that GPX Spinner takes a back-seat to my
regular job and geocaching activities, so I might not be able to fix it right away.
I got the idea for GPX Spinner from the original Palmable Indexes. I found that site in late July
2002. I immediately went out and bought a cheap PDA so I could go paperless. Then on August 8, GPX
files were introduced and
the Palmable Indexes were blocked from updating. Several people, including myself, started working
on ways to convert GPX files to something readable on a PDA. In mid-December, GPX files were added
to the Pocket Query generator and on December 27, the first version of GPX Spinner was released.
This first version only took care of the GPSr side of things, by changing icons based on cache type.
Later, on January 6, 2003, support for PDAs was added.
I am unable to release the full source code to GPX Spinner. The template routines were
developed for a commercial product I was helping to write for a paying client. The company
has generously allowed me to use these routines in GPX Spinner, but they will not allow me to
share the source.
You may find it interesting that these template routines were originally based
on the routines in this product, of which full
source is available. The routines in GPX Spinner add grouping and sorting of
sub-objects, nested conditional statements, pragmas, and are about 10x faster.
I will be happy
to share snippets of code for other routines, however.
