Changes in previous release (0.9.9.0)
- Alarms based on time to ETA and location.

- Improved and (hopefully) more intuitive Route Editor
- Bug fixes
Copy wamisetup.cab to your mobile phone and open it from there. It installs RouteLogger.exe and wami.exe to the Program Files directory, under the wami subdirectory. RouteLogger records all location changes, along with the time interval between the current and the last location change. The changes are logged to a route file that goes into /Application Data/wami/Routes folder on your phone.
wami.exe, that runs on your mobile phone, then loads the appropriate route file based on your selection and shows ETA at destination, at all defined location groups and the current location and location group, based on cell tower id and text broadcast from your cellphone provider. As of release 0.9.9.0, you don't need cell broadcast when running wami - wami automatically checks for the cell tower id every minute and updates the location and ETA information accordingly.
RouteEditor.zip has RouteEditor.exe, a WinForms application that runs on the PC, that takes the log file generated by RouteLogger and allows you to arrange locations into well known location groups. You can save the resulting output to a route file, which you will then need to copy to \Application Data\wami\Routes on your mobile phone.
PS : To turn on cell broadcast on WM 6 Standard, click Start->Settings->Phone->Channels-. Check both the Enable Channels checkbox and the Receive Channel List checkbox. Click Menu->Edit Channels->Menu->Add. The channel number varies, depending on the service provider, but 50 usually works fine, atleast in South India.
For WM 6 Professional (touch screen) phones, please take a look at http://community.softteq.com/blogs/nick/archive/2006/03.aspx.
Auto SMS allows people to know where you are and when you'll reach the destination location, without any effort on your part. After configuring Wami to auto respond, Wami automatically responds to SMS requests with your current location and ETA information. You can customize the list of people to whom Wami will autorespond, as well as restrict responses to SMS messages containing a specific string.Using Alarms
Options -> Configure Alarm opens the Sound Configuration dialog. The Enable checkbox turns the feature on/off. The name of the sound file that will be played is shown as a link. Clicking on the link allows you to set a different file to be played as the alarm. The sound will be played when
1. The time to destination becomes less than the time specified in the "Time less than" textbox. The time format is hh:mm:ss.
2. The current location group becomes equal to the location group selected in the "Location Group" dropdown.Using Auto SMS
Options -> Configure Auto SMS opens the Auto SMS configuration dialog. The Enable checkbox turns the feature on/off. Message Text expected is the text that must be the body of the SMS request that Wami will respond to. Add Contact allows you to add contacts to whom Wami will respond to. You can also manually edit the text above the "Add Contact" label. Wami will only respond if an incoming SMS request is from one of the added contacts AND the body of the message is the message text that you typed in.
