    Downloaded it. I love the internet browser. I went to pandora on it and it works great. One request though. Could you maybe make it so you could add shortcuts to web pages on the main screen?

        Yes I do intend coding in shortcuts onto the home screen so it will open the stored web address when clicked. You would set them up in the skin.ini file I think.. something like..

        ###button number=item,icon (item can either be web address or file)
        button1=http://pandora.com,pandora.png

        You could then use it also to load other embeded apps etc.

        thats the idea anyway, just need more hours in the day. lol

            Steve, this just keeps getting better and better!

            One small prob though,.......how does one change from "Celsius to Fahrenheit"?

            I can't seem to find/where to make the changes,.....Thanks mate.

            PS: Are you going to support the "Visteon/Directed" Hd radios, and iGuidance for GPS in near future?

              It's quite simple actually. You just multiply the Celsius measurement by 1.8 and then add 32 then you will have Fahrenheit.

                Sorry, I had already added the f / c just forgot to enable it. opps will be in the 5.1 update which should be v.v.v.soon :-)

                iGuidance should be also supported as well as Igo in the 5.1 release (fingers crossed) I dont have either so can't test.

                just bare with.. lol

                      Everything still running smooth except two probs,... well maybe one. The weather glitch is probably by design,...I think?

                      When clicking/tapping on shuffle icon button, "FreeIce" locks up for about 30 seconds or so, and visuals freeze also. Then the shuffle icon then turns red, and then I can finally go back to main screen.

                      Thanks.

                        I'm aware of the very slow random number generator and will have a look at using a different method v.soon. The weather icon is pulled directly from google weather and I dont have any control of this at all :-(

                              Hi fella,

                              ok.. Alpha 6 will being

                              DAB compatibility (hopefully)
                              Fixed Random shuffle pause
                              Fixed GPS border-less Embedding
                              Settings screen (hopefully)
                              A few more widgets I've been saving up

                              I don't want to add that much this time as I would like the release to come within a week rather the wait between 4 and 5

                              I will be accepting requests soon :-)
