    my 2c worth ::

    :: I'm very much in favor of your 'interpretations' of HU's
    ; I think sony has spent much more money on researching human interfaces than any of us and while that doesn't make them correct by default.. it certainly 'lends' to their credibility. I say 'interpret' because we, in an A/V environment, must make modifications based on TouchScreen v Physical interface and the addition of applications, video, etc

    :: The buttons down the right hand side....
    IMHO.. can be moved to left of the curved inset of the text area.. merged with the other buttons and set on a complimentary curve for that text area.
    --- this is what i mean by interpretation.. a HU inspired by but not exactly like...

    :: One more concept, the trim on my car is wood 'teak' and I've envisioned an integrated head unit that wasn't black plastic or even brushed metal, but rather an extention of the elegant wood grain. -- so there's my vote for wood grain as an alternative to brushed metal. Also the lights in my passat ar blue and red.. so being able to match that would be a plus..
    --I'll make certain to capture these when I forward the pics along.

    Man that's just sweet! If you find the time I really would like the same thing with my cdx5700. That would look so badass having the actual unit then the screen looking like the unit.

    Looking good buddy but why dont you take the slider style from the head unit and use it on the playlist. Make up the arrows from groups of blocks or triangles like you have the track position indicator made from and use the box around the slide too.

    Finally some ideas!!! but... Frodo Player doesn't allow borders around sliders and rails. since the playlist sliders don't always show up. that means no border can be placed there. The border on the head unit is infact in the skin(background image) In short if i did a border , whenever there's no sliders, the border would still be visible.

    Background Down is completed. great!

    I am already using it. the red mute works great on the screen.

    here is what a wood texture might look like

    Although this is the ugliest wood texture i've created... we'll improve with time hopefully. I'll make a better preview of tomorrow.

    Someone suggested using a double-DIN receiver as a guide. I visited Crutchfield and found a Clarion ADB340MP. Here's a pic:


    I think if you were to remove the rotary knobs and make the 'screen' larger it would look good with plenty of room for buttons and information.

    I was looking at the above screen too. I like the button placement and the large screen. Now if only we could have the embeded GPS show in that 'screen', that would kick ***.

    In order for this to work right, though, all the screens would need to look like this but have the desired information displayed on the 'screen'.
