If we ever get decent GPS software you could even track the location of your car on your phone for security or when your in a large parking lot.That would be sick. I hope they release a developer API for iPhone soon!
    Well thats interesting... with one of the plugins that controls switches or maybe something new what would be super, super, SUPER awesome would be if your car doors would unlock when the computer detected the iphone (of even any phone) via bluetooth (~30ft)! I know this is completely unrealistinc for something like this, lol but that would be f-king awesome.

    a bluetooth proximity sensor to open a door is def possible... but i'd rather go with a dedicated RFID solution, it's more secure than bluetooth. the issue is. either way you go the computer has to be powered on the entire time. drawing from your battery... or can macs wake over bluetooth...

    your apple remote can wake the mac. but well.... that's not secure either

    i'm happy with plain old keys. give me the tech once i'm inside the car.

    what i need is a mount in my car for the iPhone that swivels for the different layouts based on what you are watching... and allows you to touch the screen easily without taking your eyes off the road too much.

    Ya I have had this idea for a while using BluePhoneElete. BluePhoneElete can wake a mac from sleep and it can run applescripts as well. I would basicly do what you have explained and use the proximity sensor to wake the computer and flip the relays. Its possible with almost any bluetooth phone but it will be even sweeter with the iPhone.

    Yep, and you'll also notice that it can be controlled by a computer as well, such as the ones we all put in our cars, so, imagine this. Mini controlling windows and doors on the inside, iPhone (please oh please) letting us in/starting our car from the outside.
