It has been a few years since I had a client that wanted a GPS / Mapping solution. My past project used vb6 and mappoint 2002.
I see many things have changed...was wondering if any one could give just some general feedback on which version of mappoint to use (I see 2006 has been released)....as for the actual program I plan on doing it in C#
Let me also state that the "mappoint web service" is out of the question, the client application may at times be in use where there is no internet connection.
Here are some things I am looking to accomplish...not sure if these are even "doable" with mappoint....if not any other software recomendations would be a huge help.
1 - Add dots (pushpins) with custom icons and change the icon to match the vehical state....possible show information in the pushpins tool tip.
2 - Basic routing and route information...a truck leaves new york at 9am and based on the current location, route, speed, should arrive in Detroit at 3pm...and the ability to make and compair different routes.
3 - Geo fencing - progmatically tell if a location (pushpin) is on a route or if the driver has left the route and is off sight-seeing.
Thanks in advance !
