    Control Centrafuse with you headunit or steering controls

    If anyone is interested I'm developing a plugin to allow a headunit to talk to Centrafuse using a USB device called the Car2PC available from In Dash PC


    There is an early test version available on the Centrafuse forum in this post.

    That's to channel your PC music thru your head unit? thru an 1/8" jack??
    No thanks...

    Thank you for your excellent, well explained and relevant post. Best I stop working on this plugin right now.

    Actually, it's also for controlling your CarPC with your headunit. Especially useful for the lucky folks who have controls built-in to their steering wheel.

    I think most people here have touchscreens for controlling their PC's...
    I have steering wheel controls in my car, but I was thinking about going with the SWI-X setup...
    Maybe you can convince me otherwise...

    I have a touchscreen too but it's handy for controlling some of the basic features such as play/pause, next/prev track and in some cases actually manipulate the headunit display (depends on the headunit). It's great for people like me who don't want to mess up the dash too much or install aftermarket sound systems in a nearly new car that already has a decent one.

    In case you are wondering my touchscreen is going into the SatNav housing which itself is aftermarket. It's just a drop-in replacement though so means I can get the car back to standard pretty easily.
