    ok, found the Pandora bug :-) fixed and uploaded a new version. Thanks for your help JrFaust :-)

    The bug was caused because no music had been played in the default audio player and it didn't know what txtTitle was. I've now moved it so it knows beforehand. As I had already played something in the default audio player I wasn't finding the fault.

    glad I've got that sorted.. now onto the settings and a splash screen.

    O.. anyone tested the power function yet ?

    I tested doubleTwist and Pandora and Digital Car is working, no more crashes on play/pause. - Nice find on the txtTitle.
    I did test the power feature, the built-in player play/pause works correctly when plugged in and unplugged.
    External players like doubleTwist and Pandora pause when power is unplugged but don't play when plugged back in.

    Thank you,
    Robert

    Hi Rob, Glad that bug's sorted :-) The pause was needed of other apps as if I didn't pause when power was removed then they would just keep playing even though your tablet (phone) would go to sleep. I pause them by obtaining focus from the Audiomanager this cause's them to pause. I haven't tried releasing focus, that might do the job.. Will give it a go and see what happens :-)

    Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.

    Steve,
    Its no problem. I've been wanting/waiting for a centralized app like this for car audio but I don't have the skills to program it myself, but I can help with testing.

    Thank you,
    Robert

    Hi fella, I do intend to add avi / mp4 etc to the media player so you can just click on what you want. I can add '.mp4' extension in the next release if you want but it will only play audio at the moment (no picture as yet).

    I need to decided how far I take the software in the Alpha stage. Beta will be uploaded to the play market I think, then become available for free with an in-app purchase which will unlock the software fully.

    I'm currently thinking only 2 presets will work with the free software and it will time out after 10 minutes. After this it will need restarting. Current pricing will be about 5.99 / $9.99 USD. Not sure what you think about the price but once paid you will get all the updated for free.. .no extra charge will ever be made. Compared to Centrafuse... it's a bargain :-)

    right, back to it.. new version soon I hope.

    Very nice Pandora works music cuts out when using navigation. Excellent stuff. Has any one tried this while hooked up through a DAC and USB host cable?

    Just for giggles.. .Not sure if I can package logos with Digital Car.. but I can't see why I can't code for a logo folder so you can put them in yourself once installed :-)



    O.. also notice the X in the right corner .. we now have an exit button.

    you can cut out the volume during navigation commands. is it also possible to set focus of navi app and back to dc (maybe with delay)?

    a test with 10min in free version would be ok for me.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for this. I just played with it for a little bit and must say it is stable.

    Issue I had:
    1. Playing music via Tunein: after setting tunein icon on main page and selecting it, tunein opens and plays music fine. Now, i dont know if this issue is a tunein api problem but station id and text does not show on top line of your app, just 'external sound' (again, not sure if this is a'fault' of DC, but thought id mention it.)

    2. Testing the power feature, I plugged in a charger and DC recognised 'charging', I unplugged and again DC recognised this but nothing happened after this. Is my device meant to go in sleep mode after i unplug?

    Things that worked:
    Volume and mute
    built in music player
    tunein (did not test pandora etc)
    setting shortcut

    Things I'd like to see:
    More options in settings. E.g I just d/led the current version of DC today and this version does not have a background for the speedo as well as the a background for the short cuts.Also there are no backgrounds for the bottom strip and top strip. I prefer to have this than your version in your screenshot, but I am sure other may disagree, so an option for user to tick for these backgrounds would be good.


    Also, I'd love to see dabmonkey board available as a radio on DC.
    these are some initial thought. will provide more soon.


    Thanks
