Here are some pictures of the screen on my Lilliput 7" monitor. Let me know if you need more pictures.
Ok...I have the dll that is written in .NET by MitchJS at www.rush2112.net. If you are not familiar with his work he created a drop in board for the Apline SIR-ALP1 tuner that allows you to connect to the sirius tuner via usb port and control the tuner (they sell this board here on mp3car.com). He also has made some applications for a windows system that allow him to control the board. I have used the Lutz Roeder's .NET Reflector decompiler to look at the source of this dll and I think it would be the perfect guidline by which to write a cocoa version. He also gave me a demo program that has a debug window we could use to see how the code interacts with the tuner.
Is there anyone that has Cocoa experience and can understand the .NET code enough to write something that amp can use? If so PM me and i will share the dll with you. The only reason i am not posting the dll on the forum is because i had to PM MitchJS to get it and because of this i believe he doesnt want it widely distributed.
I have an SIR-ALP1 tuner and am willing to purchase the drop in board to test any development.
How about something that gives traffic information. There are many websites out there that give up-to-date traffic information. This page could work in conjunction with wardriving... anytime you are connected to the internet the page would get the latest information and continue to update while the connection is up. If it was disconnected from the internet it would store the last update until it can could connect to the internet agian. I will be updating this post with websites that i find....
www.traffic.com (has rss feeds for different metropolitan areas, each individual can sign up for free and get customized rss feeds based on different routes you setup on their website)
haha hey thats not such a bad idea . However I think that should be placed below GPS on a very large list of to-dos for AMP .

something like this: http://developer.yahoo.com/traffic/
Get Real-Time Traffic Alerts with Traffic Web Services from Yahoo!
The Traffic Web Services from Yahoo! enable you to access real-time traffic alerts information for a given location. Build applications that use this dynamic traffic alert data to help you plan optimal routes and keep on top of your commute. Traffic data also makes a great addition to a mashup with Yahoo! Maps.
That's a nice idea. But, you can almost already do this. Just goto one of these webpages (ie, traffic.com) and put in your zipcode, and it generates a page for you based on your zipcode. Visit that page in AMP's browser and add it to your bookmarks. And then you have it anytime you need it.
I see what you are saying about doing it auutomatically, but yeah, that's far down the list
I do agree that this is a pipe dream feature and should be pretty far down the list. However I do think there would be a huge call for this service.
There's got to be some other developers out there that can implement this. MacUsers? Gnat? Someone?
