My preference was a kickstarter so no one had to part with money without getting something for it, but Kickstarter turned me down. I already raised money and returned it (at 10% cost to me) because I didn't make it clear that
without a sufficient amount the work would not be done. It is now clear. Give if you want the site to be offline as short a time as possible. Otherwise there is no telling when it comes back online. What I'm not willing to do is pay a 10% fee on all the money received if I don't get enough. There isn't a good way to do this (other than Kickstarter) that I know of and I don't care to waste my time searching one out. I am busy (which the entire problem in the first place).

Anyone who really thinks they are buying a product though is delusional. Unless I raise $100,000 I lose money on this deal. This is strictly a labor of love.

As well, you state you're not going to return any money's delivered, so it really puts someone who wants to "purchase" (lets face it, that's what we are doing) DSM for future use in a precarious position of "will this thing make it or not." Make the use of the site subscription only and I'm sure you'll get the money you are owed to keep the site running and possibly make a little on the side.

That was my point, not here to argue, so I'll go back into the shadows.

Hey crafty, is there a way I can gift the app to my dad for his birthday that you know of? Also would it help the endeavor more to buy the app for myself or just donate? Thanks again for all you've done with this stuff.

Reprieve from execution!

https://developers.google.com/maps/d...javascript/v2/

The important part is:

Note: The Google Maps JavaScript API Version 2 was officially deprecated on May 19, 2010. The original deprecation period has been extended from May 19, 2013 until November 19, 2013. As of this date, all applications requesting v2 will be served a special, wrapped version of the v3 API instead. We expect this wrapped version of the API will work for most simple maps, but we strongly encourage you to migrate your code to version 3 of the Maps JavaScript API before this date.
WOOHOO!

I'll get the sad news page removed as soon as I can. I am buried in work still...

Awesome, but I thought I saw this posted earlier in the thread by someone? Maybe you missed it, but I thought I remember seeing it.

Either way great news.

So in your eyes, does that provide a more feasible window for a re-write that works with your schedule? Obviously its still going to be needed down the road?

He were conflating a different Google API with the one I am using. You are correct, it will be needed down the road. Hopefully my schedule will allow for this to be solved by November. I will try to plan a funding strategy into the update too so this can create enough cash flow to be maintained.

In another note to all observers, the site will be going to down for some scheduled maintenance around midnight eastern time tonight.

Need some technical help and can't find it any where else.

Bought the dualsportmaps app but am not having a lot of luck with it. I am trying to import the TeTs .gpx files to my droid incredible 2. Transferred the .gpx file to my phone via the USB connection and the app states it cannot find an files in the osmand something file. Tried pulling the file off of my email but it also showed that it could not be found.

I did make a custom route via google for the return trip. Converted the .kml to .gpx. The app sees the file but after I import it nothing happens. Nothing is shown on the map.

I also tried to download the TeTs files to the dualsportmaps.com page for private viewing so I could pull the map up in the app. When trying to do so the website states that the file already exists as a loop and I can't upload it.

I did get the waypoints to upload on the GPS essentials app but no tracks or routes.

I have been fighting with these apps for two weeks and finally gave up. Decided to just buy a garmin Montana but of course everyone local is out of stock and will not have any until I leave.

Can anyone help me? I need the portion of the Trans Eastern Trail from Clayton, Ga to Hampton, TN on my phone. Leaving Wednesdays morning. Don't know what else to do besides take my Ipad which has MotionX and has worked awesome for me in my truck for several months. Prefer not to risk that unless I have no other choice.

Thanks for any help.



Joe

You really should be using the website for track storing, transferring,and editing. Upload whatever GPX you want to the website. Edit oats you prefer, then download it to the app via the search functions.

+1 on that. Website is a breeze to use once you get used to it. I can't imagine doing it on the phone.
