    Yeah, i read through your site, and i think that your goal is not quite what i need - i want a media player entirely accessable by keyboard! Haha

    I dont have touchscreen, and i'd rather be able to control my media with a numpad (mapped with Girder); as i will be able to do that without looking at the screen (same way i can use my regular stereo without looking at it).

    I do like the simplicity of it. But do the modules run concurrently? (i.e. can you start your navigation, switch back to the menu and launch DVD to have both running at the same time (so you can switch betweeh the two to see how you are going etc))

    Yes the modules run concurrently, you can be listening to music and navigating, and in fact if you are the navigation layer will pause the music to issue a voice command and then restart the music so you don't have to hear one over the other.

    That's a great feature! I really like how Mappoint is now touch screen friendly.

    I really like the Mappoint integration, any way to run this independently?

    Currently there is no separate map point module since I wanted a whole system, and wanted one that was entirely touch screen based) I used the products I already had so that I didn't have to spend any money on the software!

    From what i can see from the scrrenshots it looks designed very well , I personally was not able to test it out because I dont hae access to mappoint at this time.

    Is there a way at this time to disable the GPS in a settings file, so one would be able to test out the other functions?

    I could...

    Have it not do anything with the mapping when mappoint is not installed, but then the only module would really be sound. I'll work on that.

    I'm also working on a more elegant recovery when MapPoint crashes which it does every once in a while.

    Looks nice and clean... it would be sweet to have volume control for both the music playing and the navigation seperately ... as well as a overall volume...

    it shouldnt be too hard since you are pausing the music while the navigation voice is playing...so you could change the volume and change it back...

    Also.. the Hibernate exit does not work... it doesnt do anything at all actually...

    Volume...

    There is a way to put a mute and a volume on the main page (I think Zoro's skin does this). HAving seperate navigation and music volume is actually pretty interesting. I had also thought about keying the volume to the GPS speed, and thus having a speed dependant volume setup, which I'll probalby add shortly.

    What is your setup for the Hibernate? It's strange on my laptop and desktop it works fine, but on my VIA it doesn't work at all. I just hibernate by pressing the button on the front of the unit for now as I've not managed to figure out why the hell it doesn't work.

    thanks!
