    judging by the "powered by" section in the image in this post i'd guess it's "myhtpc"

      Is that just called a "Front End"? I'm really new to this car software stuff...

        think of a front end as a quick launch setup... it is typically driven by a program (frodoplayer, mediacar, roadrunner, etc) and it is then skinned... so everything you can see is considered the skin and depending on how the frontend is written you can access certain functions from each mode (modes being music, movie, etc)... some frontends let you control mp3s while you are running GPS software...

        so take RoadRunner, the front end is just a fancy way of controlling winamp, media player and your choice of GPS... it also has functionality for XM and FM... there is a new weather screen that pulls data (thru wifi) when available...

        Centrafuse also pulls traffic data if available...

              Meedio doesn't support GPS software I don't think. I used FrodoPlayer a little bit but it seems a little cheap to use. I would like to use software that is somewhat good quality and has everything I'm looking for. Can someone help me out?

              Sorry about the above information...I did not use the software enough to give any good feedback. For one I didn't even know that the owner of frodoplayer is part of this message board...so I guess I didn't think anything of it when I posted that comment. I did not mean to say the above comment in a negative way. Sorry frodobaggins.

                dork.

                if you mean cheap, as in free, then yes, you are right. otherwise, develop your own somewhat good quality software and then criticize.

                  Sounds like you should look into Centrafuse.

                    You do realize that by bashing FrodoPlayer, you're incuyrring the wrath of thousands (OK, maybe dozens) of Frodo's fanbois, all of whom happen to be smoking primates. You'll be lucky if you don't have both eyes burnt with half-finished Marlboros.
                    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                    How about the Wiki?

                      Dude, I bet you know ***** about FrodoPlayer. What skins did you test? Did you change the ini files to perform/look the way you want? It does everything that you said you were looking for except the game interface, but you can use an external program for that.

                      Have a look under the sofware forums, Frodo, then look at the install pics from the many people that use this software. Also look under the forum "show off your project".

                      Oh and you could make Frodo or any front end look like that pic.

                        is there a front end with built in "game support"... no clue what this would mean, but I guess some people have more right to complain about things not being perfect... I mean come on... look what the front ends costs... the price is UNBELIEVABLE...

                        I for one intend to complain as much as possible because I have absolutely nothing to contribute... where can I demand my refund??

                            yeah, reddeath's frontend (whats the name again?) has a link to use a Nintendo 64 emulator embedded...

                            Also guys, just cause he didnt like frodoplayer doesnt mean he is an idiot... I didnt like frodoplayer, and dont like it until now, doesnt make me an arse. I posted to frodo in his "what am I doing wrong" thread... lots of stuff I dont like...

                            I'd suggest you try:

                            Frodo player (already tried it, didnt like it right?)
                            try Centrafuse
                            try Road Runner

                            then if you want to revisit, wait a while and NMC's next version will be out with some amazing new features, including full scriptability and ability to have all controls on one screen (like GPS/DVD playing at the same time, yada yada, mutli screen support etc)... Also AIMEE is supposed to come out sometime soon (but it could be a while since it is "about to come out" for about 2 yrs I think)
