Tried to search for it but it seems as if I'm alone...
Whenever Destinator "speaks" the music is paused (find that very annoying) but never as long as the directions I'm given are.
So, media is paused for ~3-4 seconds and the nav-voice will take the time it needs, so if it's something short like "turn right" there will be a moment of silence and if it's longer I'll have both music and directions.
I don't get an event that tells me exactly how long each spoken voice in navigation is going to take in every language to delay the music perfect, it's just an average...

Also, the first two buttons in the options for the voice control setup dont do anything, and when I press the third one "voice commands" and try to record a command such as "computer", I press record and speak and nothing happens and if i click OK it just shows "" where it used to say "computer"
Also, the equaliser presets don't work, it doesnt save what I had it setup to last start, and it doesn't let me save a new preset after I saved two by the same name "lolset".
Also, the audio output is LOUD. like it almost killed my eardrums when I first told it to play a song. The "front" slider sounds like it's max at 50, anything higher clips horrably..why would you do this? It's not usable at all.
Another suggestion would be to make the "Bass" slider affect the first band of the equaliser. The 140hz band is considered in the "mids" of audio. The first band would be a better choice, it affects the actual bass alot more. Likewise for the treble. It only affects one band. If you could make it pull the ones near to it in a curve, it would be much better.
Okay, RC4 is out. Ummm, lets see. It installed fine, but when I went to the media mode it gave me a small exception error msg box. I think it was exception 224, and it did it several times. It only did it the first time, it works fine now after a restart of Centrafuse.
For some reason, the "general" options menu isn't accessable. When I double click on it it doesn't open anything...the others work though.
The EQ presets work fine, it loads the last one every time.
The major problem is the sound playback. When I click on a song to play, it blasts it loud for a quarter of a second, before reducing the volume to a normal level. This is really annoying especially when you listen to alot of metal. Also, even though I set single click off in the options, and most things take a double click to open, I need to only single click on a song to play it when I'm used to double clicking. You should add an option to change single or double click for the songs in the library.
I absolutely love the way everythign else in the program is done. I like the fact that you thought about many small things like the random mode. It's a smart random mode in that that if you switch a song, and click back, rather than going back to a different song in a predetermined mixed playlist it will go to the last song played. Good work.
The only thing that bothers me is the amount of memory that is used, but I do understand that most people are putting decent computers into thier car, with 512+MB of ram, but I need to use a crappy P3 laptop for this with 128MB of RAM. I have yet to test it...I hope it runs fine.
You're gonna want to repost this in the bugs thread for RC4...
