    DigitalMod Wishlist...What would YOU build...

    Well, now that there are some examples on how to build digitalMods, I know that I've been going crazy trying to think of different things that can be added.

    So I figured it would be a good time to see what types of modules people would be interested in building. I'm not a developer, but I know enough to be dangerous. More examples is what I'm after...

    So here are some of the modules I would like to see...

    1. Weather
    2. Vehical Maintenance Tracker/Gas fillup tracker
    3. QWERTY keyboard
    4. Zagat Restuarant Reviews
    5. Movie listings based on Zip code/Lat/Long
    6. Touch Screen ready web browser
    7. Yellow pages look up
    8. google search
    9. local traffic
    10. Email Client
    11. quick scrolling through artists via slider or some other method...

    vehicle maintenance.
    I'll put in my maintenance schedule from my vehicle manual and info every time I fill up, then it can basically tell me whenever I need to do anything.
    Then I can remove those stupid reminder stickers.

    The qwerty keyboard and the touchscreen web browser are the only things that would be difficult to do using the current SDK.

    Anything dealing with music management like a slider is not currently possible since the media player is not yet exposed in the SDK, but will be in the future.

    Everything else mentioned should be possible in some way with the current SDK. If you need help making any of these, just post a specific thread about exactly what you are trying to implement and how you want it to work.

    I'm looking at putting together a drag racing mod... Have it control some of the stuff connected to relays (electric cutout, boost controller, water injection), as well as recording the OBD2 info from the run and, hopefully, being able to record the appropriate times...

    I'd love something that would display the lyrics of an mp3 (assuming you have the lyrics embeded in the ID3 tag). That way, when my dumbass friends start singing the wrong lyrics (ala www.kissthisguy.com), I could tell them to shut up and look at the screen!

    Nice...in-car Karaoke. I was also thinking of somthing that would let you assign a rating to your music...or even build playlists on the fly.

    What about something like a 'cop' button? I'm not 100% sure about the legalities of a CarPC in my province, but I know for sure that navigation systems are OK. So, in certain situations, it'd be cool to just hit a button (or perform a gesture) that would kill the music and disable everything except navigation. Better safe than sorry!

    Thinking along the same lines as the previous post, how about some integration with the Valentine One Radar Detector (with the Software One software/hardware combo), like this......



    I would think the simplest way to use this softaware is via the external application route. But it would be really slick if it were integrated internal to the SD software. This would really go well with my stealth V1 install.
