    One question:
    How should it work?

    OK here is what I mean: I was thinking about having 5 (user selectable speed ranges). For example: the first would go from 0-9, second 10-34, 35-64, 65-90, >90.
    Now when the speed goes form one range to another... there are two possibilities:
    a) Should the volume change to predefined value?
    b) Should the volume just increase for predefined value (like 5%)?
    I think that b) would be better. And there are again two possibilities with b) the value is always the same, the value is different for every range.

    Thanks for your opinions.

    I believe this is how it goes on my stock radio:

    0-20: set volume
    20-40: 1 notch above set volume (maybe half or less, there are 3 settings)
    40-60: 1 more notch
    60 and above: another notch

    I wish I could measure decibels, but I can't

    stric, for first iteration, why not keep it simple....

    I suggest allowing to define only a few things:

    1) Speed at which volume should begin to be altered (e.g. 30 mph)
    2) Speed at which volume should stop being altered (e.g. 65 mph)
    3) Percentual volume increase at the top speed defined.

    So this way, all your program needs to do is calculate the gain needed from 30 to 65 mph, increasing it gradually by a certain amount, until the speed reaches 65 mph at which point no more increase in volume would be applied. The increase amount is something you need to calculate such that it is a constant rate from 30-65 mph. (linear 'curve').

    Because performing a constant monitor of speed is not desirable, perhaps just monitor every few (5?) seconds, and adjust volume according to the read speed.

    agreed. in the hummer, you have three settings for how agressive it is, the highest two are TOO obtrusive, so maybe the best way is to let the user select a percentage increase and you use that as a variable (since each person is different). i also agree, let the user set the minimum and maximum ranges for increases (25 to 70 sounds good) and perhaps do a .25% increase per mph (thus at 70mph, you would get about a 18% increase). but this would probably require the speed to be read constantly. so the other option might be to just do ranges:

    25-35mph = 5%
    35-45mph = 10%
    etc.

    if you get a beta out, i can play around with it!

    Would be a great function!
    And preferably configurable, as I have to go from 2 out of 15 while standing at a light to 15 out of 15 when driving on the highway. That's what you get with only 3 gears forward and as good as no sound proofing

    Hi,
    would anyone test this please. I do not have carpc or GPS, so I could only tested if it works when the speed is 0 .
    The settings for plugin isn't working yet, so you must manually edit config.xml
    You only need to set 4 speeds and 5 volume level ranges.

    Let me know how it works.

    PS I do not take any responsebility if this plugin causes problems to your PC.
    Although it shouldn do.

    Does it work both with MPH and KM/H ?

    Hmm, I am not sure. David what do you provide through SDK mph or km/h? Or you choose upon the Unit setting?
