Thanks to Ranmax09 from our forums for posting this interesting bit up on the site! Atari800 has just released his Unofficial MapThis homebrew application for the PlayStation Portable over at PS-News. Of course, he gives proper credit to Deniska, In7ane, and MIB.48 as the "REAL brilliant wizards behind this."
Anyway, according to Atari800, this is based on 4.99 beta and should contain the following changes:
* added speech for:
o searching for satellites
o satellite found and fixed
+ only does this once when starting up
* when you go GPS mode onI automatically drop CPU to 111 mhz
o once your fixed - I bump it back up to 333mhz
* It speaks to you
o left turn ahead
o right turn ahead
o arrived at destination
* Adjusted the warning distance based on the speed you are driving
o adjust WARNINGDISTANCE=30 in config file for how much area to search when at a stand still. If you go 20 miles an hour - the warning distance is 50
* Placed circle around you to show warning distance when driving - you can see the area get bigger as you drive faster and smaller as you slow down
He adds in a note that you may actually change any of the voices. Cool, eh? "They are MP3 files in the system direcotry
128 bit 44khz - I set it to mono but stereo is ok, too... Speaking doesnt work ibn TOP UP mode - searching for and found satellite works, regardless."
As for what's up next with this project, he says he'd like to go see if he can take the BEARING (direction we are going) and look ahead only. Also, he'd like to get into a small neighborhood with lots of quick lefts and rights. But this, unfortunately, could just be his last build for him.
Anyways, you may find out more about his plans, as well as his request on not to be bugged for additional features like pinging for wifi hotspots or whatnot, over at our forums, which you may access through our link below.
Oh, and this works with the official PSP GPS Receiver and Custom Firmware 3.40 OE. Enjoy, guys!
