here is what he wrote me back. Even with the XMPCR support, I think his price is just a little too high for me.
We normaly only sell the softwae with our hardware becuase we build our own hardware and we know the software works perfectly on it. We do not really want to get in to the problems of other costomer hardware issues. However the software will run on all PC's. The only problem we have seen is some sound chips use the front volument level to control the out put and we control the master. But even then we can still tell you how to set it so it will work.
We might be able to offere you a intructory rate at $119. Yes we do have a demo version. you will need to activeat it buy sending in the hardware ID or it will stop working in 30 days.. Screen res must be 640x480

Checked out their site. Seems like more fluff than anything else. Another Joe trying to make money from his work, which is fine, but $3,999 seems just a *tad* steep. Sure, it's a complete setup, but they're stating a LOT of features that just don't jive too well. For example, they already claim to have the capability to connect to (and monitor) a radar detector. Thanks to a couple threads on this site, and some diligent searching, I can see that the detectors that allow for this are pretty expensive.
In the end, it looks like a STARTING price of $3,999, which means I think I will just stick with building my own from scratch, thank you very much.
BTW, the software alone is at $119, but judging from the way it's promoted on their site, I wouldn't imagine the technical support is too good. They mention that they have their own hardware, which "standardized the mobile computing experience", but also eliminates the need for them to provide support for the software much more than how to get it turned on. You know the old saying: "It works for me..."
