  • Remote Control Cf

    Gents!

    Here you go - used my knowledge of PhoneControl to make thisfor you. Not difficult but way way cool!!

    Basically it uses your mobile phone keypad to enter commands (hotkeys) into CF e.g. Press 0 on keypad to go to main menu+ pause, play, skip, volume.

    This keymap is for the sony ericsson but the Motorola one will come later and im not sure if NOKIA supports it or not.
    Also completely configurable!!

    Instructions:
    1. Download zip, extract the two files into: C:\program files\phonecontrol.net\keymaps.
    2.open up C:\program files\phonecontrol.net\PhoneCTRL.Config.xml and make the <UseKeyMap locked="False">KeyMaps\**********.KeyMap.xml</UseKeyMap>

    become: <UseKeyMap locked="False">KeyMaps\CF.KeyMap.xml</UseKeyMap>

    you have now told Phonecontrol to load theCF keymap when PhoCo is initialised.

    3. Enable phone in CF settings and if you havent already point to your phonecontrol.net.EXE file when prompted.

    Any probs give me a shout!!

    Actually should work fine with motorola - but NOT nokia as they couldnt be arsed implementing Bluetooth properly.

    PS it helps if you have latest version of PhoCo and you have it working.... But i can also help with that!

      Does this use the TCP interface to phoco?

        dont think so. PhoCo uses keymapping to pickup keystrokes on your mobile, which, when connected, are recorded by phoCo and converted into something useful. ie. turning your GPS on, or muting your volume 30 feet from the car.....

              No, this is a built in feature that uses KeyMap files (plain XML) to translate the mobile phone keystrokes into either PC keystrokes, mouse commands, send messages and other stuff.
              If you want to get a deeper insight to KeyMaps, take a look here: http://zhorvat.dyndns.org/PCForums/S...spx?ForumID=39

                            Yeah, very usefull. I'm already using this feature from many time in mediacar.
                            With PhoCo & my SE T630 i'm able to choose and enter in the menu items (Music, GPS and other). The music section can be controlled completly (Playlist, visualization and shuffle; play/pause). I think that is very important to minimize the use of touchscreen when driving...

                              It seems very useful, but haven't been able to test due to lack of vehicle..
