    Glad to see the interest
    @BadMonkey thats a good idea for swipe controls was thinking about using swipe to switch between pages but I like that, ill probably have it be an option to either use swipe for page switching or media control.

    Also Im setting up the layout to work on phones at the moment cause im using my Captivate to test and build it, but will adjust it to fit on tablets also.

    Lastly, here are some rough screen shots, as I havent done anything for the layout except get things where they need to be and currently just working on functionality its rough but you can get the general idea for the look of it, its also hard to see in the pictures but the top and bottom are white bars which hold the home button on the bottom, time speed and dir on the top.

    the green bars on the sides are arrow buttons and the media controls will be on the bottom where the home button currently is, havent got them programed in yet. Currently working on the music player.

    At the top the test shows direction when you are moving and speed on the left. Im open to ideas and improvements Im just doing this in my spare time so dont expect real speedy results but I work on it at least an hour a day so it is coming along.

    And Again help with the visual of it would be appreciated!!!

    I'd love to help test, i have a Dell streak 7 i'm installing in my 06 tacoma and a optimus V i've rooted and rommed right now. there are a few 3rd party apps out there for this but feature wise they dont integrate alot. one thing that would be nice is a rotary volume knob widget for the home screen. i'm using a app called volume control right now but my home screen is my main launcher with apps such as Torque, maps navigation, voice search, swype, pandora/slacker/lastfm. beautiful widgets for a nice big time clock and weather.

    For the swipe gestures, you could make it area sensitive, ie. swipes over the Track info or Album Art control the music, other swipes change the page.

    Ok, progress took a good jump yesterday, as I was able to get the media browser pretty much done, all functioning just need to work out a few things I dont like (it includes ringtones and notification sounds in the list of songs). I still need to figure out how I want to display the weather but got it mostly working on getting the data from google. Need to do a settings page, which I will probably start working on today. But I might put up an APK of the current to start getting input.

    Also if anyone would like to help and make the graphics for the buttons and everything else I could certainly use the help, that is not my area of expertise. Just PM me if you are interested.
