Thanks again. I'm off to find me a 7" Nexus, then to wait patiently for your latest work!
The 2300km trip Melbourne to Hervey Bay is plotted on GooMaps and the plan is coming together.

I've never used this app so I can't speak to its usefulness, but as a long time Android user (and recent Nexus 7 owner) I can assure you that you won't be disappointed with that purchase.

Please keep checking.
I have suspended new sales.

Google Maps is about to make some changes which may impact one feature of EMFB..
.. that is the "follow me radar".
..everything else still works normally.

I'm working on redoing the code for that part of the app and
thought it would be in everyone's best interest to suspend sales until I solve the problem.
.. hopefully only a week or two..

I appreciate your patience until I can get this satisfactorily resolved.

Thanks,
Dennis

I"m getting optimistic about a fix..
.. best case: same as before
..worst case: same image but looping (animation) will be a toggle switch.

In ANY case, nothing will change until Google pulls the plug on API v2..
(scheduled for May 19th)
.. there is a lot of chatter on the boards that they may not but no one knows for sure.

I've reactivated EMFB on the Google Play store if you want to take a chance with me.

regards,
Dennis

Once you reactivate sales, how long before the app shows up in the store?

Hi Dennis,

I've tried several times since your post on reactivating sales, and can't get Google Play to find it.
Any clues / suggestions?

help.. if ya got um.. try um..

Back in early Jan, Google announced they were getting serious about pulling the plug on Google Mps API v2 on May 19th..
I gave a heads up back then and how it might affect "follow me NexRad".

If I tell you how many hours I've put in rewriting the code you wouldn't believe it.
.. so I won't.
I just wanted to get it done before spring cause I'm GOING RIDING!!!
..and, the "follow me NexRad" is one of my favorite features on easy map.

Well I think I think I've got some new stable code and I switched it on today.
It's a total rewrite from api v2 so I expect a few hiccups.
There is nothing you have to download from the Google Store.. this is all "back-end" stuff from my servers.

Please if you have the app, go to WEATHER and then "START RADAR".

Instead of the old default GM marker, you should see a new icon like this:
(AndyRoid on a bike)


.. if you do see the new icon, it's working.

If you don't see the new icon, you might have to go to APPLICATIONS - EMFB - APP INFO-.. and then just clear just the "CACHE"..

..DON'T clear the DATA (or you'll wipe all out all your history).
oh, did I mention:
..DON'T clear the DATA (or you'll wipe all out all your history).


Like any major upgrade (I'm speaking of GM API V3), the extra bells and whistles come with some overhead..
.. i.e. the NexRad might take a little longer to load.
But once it does it's smoother and cleaner looking..

There are extra features to make up for it.
It will use LESS data and LESS power on your phone.
If you tap on the "AndyRoid" you should see the nearest 4 cites the coverage is coming from.
.. I plan to add more info to that popup window in the coming months.
With this ApI v3 upgrade I should be able to link in some off road maps (topo maps) for you guys that have more than one bike.

If this new version is not stable, I can still switch it back to api v2 and get back to work fixing it if you let me know what kind of issues you have.
.. there are still a few months before Google pulls the plug.
It has been stable on my Galaxy Nexus "jelly bean".
If you do have a problem, let me know what kind of phone you have and what OS is on it.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you
..(and getting some sleep again )

Dennis

Hi Dennis,

Great program. It is the only thing I like about my Galaxy 3 except the camera. My bike is currently in storage for the winter so I haven't used the program for a while, but I thought I would ask two things: I currently use my hiking GPS model as a way to check my speedometer, and as a way of recording total mileage each day. Could either or both of these features be included on your program?
Again, thanks for the program. Last summer I used it on a two-week tour, and my only problem was that I didn't really understand that I needed to download areas that didn't have coverage, so this year I plan on doing that as part of my trip planning. I find that there is so much that this phone and your software can do that it is sometimes easy to miss a capability.

Andy is Motoring

Hey Dennis,

Just got your info and started EMFB up on the Droid. Andyroid is now cruising the motorways on mine. I'll start it back up this afternoon for the ride (drive actually) back home.

Thanks for the hardwork and the great app.

Ssevy,
Thank you SO much for the kind feedback
(I hope you've extended your kindness/feedback on the Google Play Store?
.. 5 star ratings and a few kind words is the life blood to keeping this app alive and well.)

Regarding your two questions.
1) I've made several attempts to add a speedometer to the application, I've seen other people do it so I know it's "doable".
I must not be doing it "right". I can get a rough approximation, but nothing really useful.
I'll continue to look into it.. thanks for reminding me.

2) For keep daily totals, there is already a built in feature with Google Maps that can't be beat...
I've had it turned on continuously for about three years and can pick any day in history and show you where I've been and how far I've traveled and when etc ... it is a VERY neat tool that I could not hope to surpass.
(however, might not be good if you in a witness protection program.. lol ..)

Check it out and turn it on.. if you have any questions about it let me know and I'll try and explain what is not already
here..: http://support.google.com/gmm/bin/an...answer=1650397

On the phone the info is very minimal, but once you turn it on and view from the PC you can pick any date or date range and create a "breadcrumb" map of where you were with just a few clicks.

For example.. I met my riding buds this morning for Breakfast.. without me doing anything, Google History created this information display of the time period:
( I can pick any day for the past three years and get similar information.)
.. way cool I think...
(this is just a screen capture so it's not really interactive..
..but when you're viewing your own, it IS interactive.)



hope that helps..

Dennis
