ThatWay! 1.9

ThatWay! Publisher's Description

NEW : This application now support the Garmin iQue 3600

ThatWay! turns your PDA and GPS into an extremely useful navigation tool. Normally a GPS device just gives you longitude, latitude, heading and all sorts of other information, but for ordinary human beings this does not help much because all these numbers still don’t tell us where to go.

With ThatWay! you see a fat arrow that points straight at your target destination . Just above the arrow there is a big display that shows you exactly how far you have to go in this direction to reach your destination. Thus, as you are driving, sailing or walking to your target destination, the arrow direction will continuously be updated in real time to show you exactly which direction to go. It works on principle that the program receives its coordinates and heading information from the GPS and then calculates the distance and direction to the target in real time. If the arrow is pointing straight up (12 o’clock position) then it means you are moving directly towards the target.

ThatWay! also show other information like the latitude and longitude, as well as heading, speed, altitude. But then it also calculates UTM northing and easting in real time and it even simulates an odometer (trip meter) which you can reset to zero from the menu.

In the preferences menu you can choose to display speed in mp/h, km/h, m/s f/s or knots. Or distance can be displayed as miles, kilometers, nautical miles, meters, feet etc. Altitude is meters or feet.

Waypoints can be easily added, edited or deleted. Once a waypoint is entered, you merely have to pick a new target waypoint in a popup listbox. And to make things simpler while you are on the road, you can use the scroll-up and scroll-down buttons on the bottom of your PDA to step through the waypoints. And when you choose to add a new waypoint from the menu, the program will automatically add the coordinates of the current GPS position to the fields. You will have to edit these if the waypoint is at a different location from you current position. Everything was done to make it as easy as possible to use even while driving.

NB :This program requires a NMEA GPS connected to your Palm device. Please test that the program is working correctly with your GPS before you buy. The application should run on all versions of PalmOS devices from 3.0 upwards.

You can have more than one waypoint databases. The reason for wanting different databases is to group sets of waypoints together. For example, you way want to have different databases that contains only waypoints in a specific area. You may delete or edit existing waypoint databases, or create entirely new ones. Once you opened a waypoint database, all the waypoint names contained in that database will be loaded into the dropdown list in the centre of the main screen. You will see only waypoints from the current open database in this list and only one database can be open at a time. If you want to use a waypoint that exists in another database, the you will have to open that database first, which will replace all the waypoint names in the dropdown list with those of the new database.

NEW : Over 60 pre-compiled waypoint databases included for almost every major world city. The waypoint databases are divided into world regions and there is a separate one for almost every state in the USA. Installing them is optional, but I suspect they will be interesting to many users. Please note that the actual ThatWay! program also changed slightly, so please remember to install the latest version before you attempt to use the pre-compiled waypoint databases

A free PC Windows based program included to convert text files into pre-compiled waypoint databases. This program can also convert waypoint databases that you created in ThatWay! back into text format on your PC

ThatWay is distributed with the following translations: English, German and Spanish. More languages will follow.
