Personally, I think it's better for him this way in the sense that everyone is just a customer: noone can attempt to pressure him into any "special interest" features, like they might feel they were entitled to if they were a donator. I'm just playing the devil's advocate with that last statement.

    In any case, this is an awesome product and he deserves compensation for it, in whatever way he decides.

    Just my $0.02.

    Yeah, I guess that argument does make sense...either way I certainly agree that he does deserve compensation...this some kick *** software

    I support this dicision too... what have the people that don't like this idea contributed in form of software yet? What's available now will still remain so.

    I personally prefer to pay something for software instead of watching it die (mediacar).

    I agree with that also, i dont mind paying for something that will be bug free and stable and a dev. that listens to its users

    Im also pretty shore that this is what david does for a living, alot of other frontend dev. work on it as a hobby - meaning they have there "real" jobs to do first

    yes he deserves to be payed for this nice thing he wrote but everything depends how much he want to charge for it...

    People only want to pay for software when it costs less then 20 Euro (without Destinator) (and yes I know what I am talking about), above that price people will open kazaa etc... and look for the software and wait till it shows up illegal. Below that price many more people will buy and try it...
    People do not like to pay a lot of money for software because is has a very short life span

    I rather would like to see that David gets payed by the Destinator guys because he can write good software for it and the Destinator guys can try to score the 'next genaration' GPS system provider for the large car-nav builders.

    After extensive testing the software is still *very* buggy. Please see my comments at http://forums.fluxmedia.net/viewtopic.php?t=87.

    I'd be delighted to hear that no one else is having these problems, as it means that there must be configuration issues on my end. But this seems very unlikely that hardware config could improve all of these problems.

    rjoek: When you say "very buggy" is it all related to just the PhoneControl stuff? This section is not considered stable. Is the app still "very buggy" when PhoneControl is disabled? I know the PhoneControl section is pretty buggy, because I haven't totally finished it yet. Firstly I am waiting on Zorro to have his remote PhoCo version out of beta and I also plan on extensively working with him to get all the PhoneControl bugs out. This section hasn't gotten much attention because there are not as many PhoCo users, and I have been busy with other sections of the program, but it will all be fixed...

    I don't plan on leaving the BETA phase until my app is finished and all known bugs are fixed, I just went ahead and updated my website to let people know where I was going and so people would stop posting and sending me messages about donating...

    Hey!

    I know i'm being an arse for asking but when can we expect these new versions to come about?

    Will you be releasing the v2 lite version first? as i'm assuming the other versions will take alot of coding time to complete.

    The reason i ask is i too still find the basic operating of the software quite buggy (i understand that tho as its still a beta). I just use the basic stuff, music, video, gps. Thats it, no radio, phone etc.

    The bugs i refer to are the ID3 tag issue earlier on as i just noticed a few songs not showing tags properly - also OGG tags? do you support them? maybe i just got them set-up wrong as they appear under 'Other' artist in the list.

    Also CF randomly exits every now and then. Can't explain it, i just got to say change a song or change volume and it quits to desktop. Also graphics are still quite slow using the latest beta.

    Basically i'm keen to get hold of your new version! lol are we talking couple of weeks/months etc.

    Cheers! still great app btw! keep it up!

    I think I'll be shelling out for the D3/OBDII version (if it supports scantool). As long as it's not too expensive it looks worth the money

    cold_fusion: I have fixed many of the ID3 tag reading problems. As for OGG.. I currently only support reading IDv1 tags... I plan on adding support for others... The reason stuff shows up in Other, is that is what it defaults too when it can't find a genre type, either because the genre wasn't there, didn't exist, or in this case couldn't read it. I put them all in music, instead of not having them available at all...

    As for the randoming exiting. This is the first I have heard of any problem like this. Has anyone else every experienced this? I haven't. Any suggestions on how I might reproduce these..

    and we are talking about months, not weeks...
