    Automated volume based on vehicle speed.

    Some of the fancier cars like Mercedes have a feature where if the car is going a certain speed, it turns the stereo volume up to compensate for road noise. Subsequently, reduced speeds lowers the volume. This would be a really nifty feature to have in one of the media players.

    Wishful thinking...I know.

    you would likely need to tap OBD for that - or possibly use some data coming from a GPS receiver that could track your speed.

    When the plugin interface is finished, this feature could easily be added.

    I have an OBDII scanner, but it's very proprietary. I doubt I could use it unless the vender lent me a hand. The GPS sounds like a cool alternative. That's probably the best solution. Too bad I'm not a programmer or I'd tackle it myself.

    on some ford stock receivers you can implement this option. many of the guys on my ranger site have hooked it up, i don't know if it is only one wire or what but it is built in

    And some of the not so fancy cars, like my Chevy Malibu....It's called SCV, speed compensated volume.

    Pulling the speed over OBDII is easy... (provided you have the hardware of course...)
