    If it's one of the above plugins then I think you are wrong (please correct me if things have changed since I last looked), both Chris31 and Andywhittaker use the same Venice5 as the rest of us and not the Venice5.1.
    Its 5.1 and running on different firmware. There was even a screen shot posted by Chris31 over at digital car. Andy's CF3 plugin only suported the FM and was based on the 5 module.

    The epitome of Function over form and is probably the best Car PC in Europe.

    Impressive!!!

    Is it a "do it yourself" unit or can the unit iself be bought fully assembled?

    Is the needed firmware available anymore?

    Does that mean that you no longer can provide these?

    I'm sorry to break the happyness, but things are going in the wrong direction here.
    Let me emphasise that i do not have anything to gain or to loose with this post, it's a matter of good manner and keeping a gentlemen's agreement.

    Chris31 on digital-car.co.uk literally spent months of hard work reverse engeneeing the command set, investigating donor radio's, writing driver code, he's still giving advice on this matter these days. He gives away his hard work (driver and a working app) for free, in good faith and hoping no one runs away with it going to make a profit with it.

    nrgizerbunny, commercializing is exactly what you're doing. Sure you give plenty of credit, but you broke the gentlemen's agreement with Chris31, stating you should use his gift for personal use only. It's fine helping out people, it's not fine putting up a webpage and selling these DAB radio's. This is immoral!

    By the way, how did you obtain the Sony slave firmware that's required for the radio to work in this application? Do you distribute it privately to sell 'your' radio's?

    Again, i emphasise that i do not have anything to gain or to loose with this post, it's a matter of good manner and keeping a gentlemen's agreement.

    In case anyone wonders who i am, i have the same nickname on digital-car.co.uk.

    @the mods, do whatever you want with me, this post or this thread, but i do ask to document yourselves before taking action.
