People,

I've recently bought a CAR-100, and it's ULTIMATE. I paid 30 (approx. 20) for it!!! I found that there was no app to control the car from a pc. (Correct me if I am wrong!)

I've made one, and it is also capable of recording routes.
You may download it at: http://www.cyberbrain.nl/downloads


Please give a reaction if you like the app.


Greetz,
CyberBrain

I will try it tonight. If it works then it would great as I have been looking for an app like this for ages.

me too

I am reminded of this "Car 100 PC software" thread (yours actually jcwhite_uk) but most of the links seem to be dead except for SimCar-100 which provides a virtual CAR-100 on your PC which you can control from you phone just as you would a real CAR-100

A small guide:

- First pair your CAR-100 with your pc
- Depending on your bluetooth application, enable the 'serial port' service for the device named 'CAR100'
- Turn the car off and on again, if the car is correctly paired, you'll see a new serial connection in your bluetooth software. Write down the virtual COM-port number which belongs to this connection
- Turn off the car
- Start the CAR-100 control program
- Click on the " > > > " button, and select the appropriate COM-port
- Click on the "Connect to comport" button
- If you've choosen the correct COM-port, you'll see 'Waiting for car...'
- Turn on the car and wait a few seconds (this may be up to ten seconds)
- If the car is properly connected, the application says 'Bluethooth car speed=2'

Have fun!

I have tested the program and must admit that I am very impressed. I works well.

Update: You can now drive the car with the arrow keys instead of with the mouse only.


Here are a few screenshots, this is when you start the application:


And when the car is connected:
