    How about using a solution developed by our windows carpc buddies? Here's a thread where Justintime has developed a local web page that pulls all the data and displays it in a browser window.

    That means you can customize it to your own specs, no additional coding of AMP involved unless you want to give it some kind of gui to alter the underlying file so you don't have to hand edit it.

    Here's what it looks like:

    Mac Prius touchscreen

    I'm interested in trying to use Amp in my Mac Prius instead of Front Row.

    In order for me to be able to make it work every button on every screen would need an equivient keyboard press. For example "p" for play, "f" for fast forward, etc. I would also need to be able to ask Amp with some sort of apple script query what page it is on.

    Basically the way the touch screen stuff works is I get back a very low resolution coordinate of where I touched (16x16) I think the buttons are big enough in Amp to where each button could fall in it's own 16x16 coordinate.

    So bascially when I touch my screen I would have to make my software say "Hey Amp, what screen are you on?" Amp would say I'm on the play screen, and my software would have to say well in that case coordinate 5x10 is where they play button is, send the keystroke "p" to Amp.

    Think this could be done?

    I would like to see Phidgets (http://www.phidgets.com) support, like was planned in the CarMinx front end. There are so many applications that these can be used for. Especially the LCD output... Just imagine, stick that LCD in your gauge cluster or on top of your dash, output GPS turn warnings... Head's up navigation! Audi-style...

    EDIT for forgotten AMAZING application: Phidgets also support RFID... Hands-free keyless entry and ignition, anyone?

    Sorry.. I think you'd be better off getting a real touchscreen.

    Some other people have asked about Phidgets too. You oughta get some example Cocoa implementations for them and figure out what's going on, and then build a plugin to support them! And then you can use that in AMP.

    Apple Remote Support

    It would be great if the apple remote (the one that comes with the new mini's) worked with the application. (If it already does please tell me what i am missing).

    That's a great idea. Someone ought to figure out how to use it w/ Cocoa apps, and then write a patch for the code to do it

    LOL...Am I sensing a bit of hostility/sarcasm j/k. I know your hurting for other developers to help out with functionality. I am currently finishing up a .NET side project and then I plan on learning Cocoa and diving in. Help is on the way....but it may be slow coming.

    If anyone is interesting in picking up the apple remote integration. Here is some Cocoa code and example program to get you started.
