      Hello Everyone,

      With the mp3car event only days away I want to go ahead and post the contest rules.

      Your car must be entered into the mp3car contest for eligibility.

      Portal Media will award a 4 sensor USB TPMS kit to the vehicle which has the most peripherals/devices connected a Car PC. For a perphieral/device to count it must follow the following conditions:

      1. Must be connected to the Car PC via a communication port (USB, Serial, LPT, bluetooth, etc.) hubs are allowed but do not count.
      2. Must be accessible/usable in driving conditions (ie with use of front end, touch screen application, voice recognition, etc)
      3. Storage Devices do not count (USB Drive, External Hard Drives, etc.)
      4. Duplicate Devices will only count once.

      If there are any questionable devices Portal Media will decide eligibility.

      Just to give you an idea here are some examples of the devices that fall within the requirements.

      Fusion Brain
      HD Radio (w/ MJS Cable)
      3G Data Card

      The winner will be voted on the forums along side the other prize packs.

      Good Luck!

          I added some clarifications to the main mp3car contest. Please note the changes in the first post.

            I think there should be a category for best car in progress. While everyone likes to win free stuff, the people who are working on theirs probably need the stuff more than people who have theirs set up already. Plus those people have no chance of winning the others even with their hard work.

              mp3Car does actually have a prize for this - it is called the mp3Car Innovation Grant and we have awarded 3 so far in the last few months. The goal is to drive innovation in the mp3Car forums by directly supporting innovators - including people who are just getting started, and are putting a lot of effort into their build and need a little help.

              How the Grant works: Moderators and mp3Car staff recommend that a forum member receive a grant in the form of a product - physical or software, which will be used by the grant recipient to further their innovation. There are no strings attached, however we kindly ask that the forum member post in their worklog or some other location on the forums how they used their grant.

              We will be soon posting about past winners - Chunkyks was the most recent with a Sheeva Plug. We offer this grant once per month and the moderators have a budget of $100 to award a lucky winner a product (not necessarily sold on the mp3Car Store).

              Distinguish yourself among the mods and you just may win one.

              Also, if there are any companies out there interested in donating to this grant, feel free to let me know.

              • Have a file you would like mp3Car to host
              • Have a cool idea that would improve the forums
