I tried to post in the Kindling forum, but didn't work, so i post it here.
I see in the features that DVB radio is supported. Can i use the EyeTV Diversity ( http://www.elgato.com/index.php?file...eyetvdiversity ) for that? And if so, wil i be able to use television also?
I've read the thread but no one has requested a FM tuner control?!
That would really make AMP an ordinary carstereo killer!
Anyone know any usb FMradio to hook with mac?
Radishark doesn't support RDS(insn't made for car use).
Ok, i read though the whole thread, but i don't program. Infact, i just got a mac today (free) and didn't even concider one before. Plus, i'm new to carputers, this will be my first.
Anyway, i downloaded AMP and I found it very easy to use, i like it alot. Thank you.
Here is my wishlist. And though it caters to me, i think it's logical.
1. GPS, it just makes sense and brings AMP to where it's actually part of your car.
2. OBDII-Again, it makes amp part of your car
3. Bluetooth, but only if it's done right (not a priority for me as i have it already)
I think only then should you get into some of the other things.
4. equalizer-it's a media player, makes sense
5. Traffic conditions-It's cool but there always is the radio
And then i think things like skype, proximety sensors, etc. Yeah, that stuff is cool but without the basics, it seems pointless. Skype for example, does it have to be integrated into AMP? You can still use it without it. Proximety sensor would be very cool but only if it worked perfectly. Again, nothing i'd pick over my first 3.
Anyway, i know this is a project, and probably a personal one with a fairly personal agenda, but that's my list.
Is AMP 1.4 the latest version? I found the source code for 2.0 and I compiled it, but I didn't like it as much as 1.4. I don't know if these quirks are addressed in a later version of AMP (if a later version exists), but I'd like an option to just list all my songs (without having to sort by Artist or Album). I'd also like to be able to (preferably) skin AMP, or at least modify the home screen, so I can add my GPS program to the home screen for easy access (without having to the Plugins section first).
Of all of the suggestions already listed, I feel that GPS/Google Earth/Maps feature is the most wanted. Especially since Google Earth is unable to cache images =[. Phone connectivity would be nice, but I can always use BluePhoneElite2 which unfortunately costs $25.
Also, I was wondering if anyone could help me with this...
I'd like to start using RoadNav, because it is free. But, I read that you should run RoadNav under Rosetta to download maps, because I have an Intel MacBook. Sure enough, I couldn't download maps (I believe I got an error message). This might be a newbie question, but what is Rosetta and how do I get it. Please help! BTW, is RoadNav capable with the Garmin nuvi 200 with a USB connection, and if so how can I use it with RoadNav? Thank you in advance!
