    Perhaps this has been discussed before, but I'd love to see some polls, for instance how many people are using which difference hardware/software components, etc..

      Polls work pretty good on Clublexus (which uses the same BB as mp3car). I guess it must be the more mature audience

        Abused in what fashion.. by users creating ridiculous polls, or by users casting multiple votes to skew the results?

        How about polls which only the admins can create..?

          You can't cast multiple votes unless you have two screen names.

              We already have that. If you have something you deem worthy of a poll,
              PM me.

                        Sorry, I didn't realize that the board already had polling capability. Perhaps what I'm thinking then, would be a sub-board dedicated to polls (unless this exists already as well..)

                        I think it might be worthwhile to see "how many people are using what components," which might I could see being helpful to newbs (myself included) when evaluating how to piece together the carputer.

                        Amongst others, I could envision the following polls..

                        - Power supplies
                        - Frontends
                        - GPS/mapping software
                        - AM/FM Tuner/TV cards
                        - XM receivers

                        If I'm getting out of hand, feel free to tell me to shut my piehole.

                        Peace!

                          I think its not a good thing to have polls because then people will just follow the "leader". People need to do their own research and not just trust someone who votes, because people will vote when they didn't even test the software or have the peice of hardware.
