    What kind of development state is this in? I mean is it in any way suitable for an end user as is?

    Obviously i'm not expecting a fully developed bug-free system, but if I buy the development board and plug it into my car-pc is the demo app usable enough that I could call it from centrafuse and have a basically working radio?

    Or would I be better waiting?

    Has anyone used that demo app with a touch screen?

    I was burnt by being an early adopter of the "ultimate dab+" device but still would like to get this going.

    The demo SW works but without a few saved settings like volume, last mode or station and it wont resize, its a basic skeleton for an application and it controls the radio correctly. I rewrote it as a Standalone application AND also as code written into my FE itself. It does everything and has not hung or fallen over once (so far).

    As far as working in centrafuse, I have no idea. There are no keyboard events captured at this stage but that would be simple to add. I have no idea if that is how applications are controlled in other FEs or what keys are standard. You could download the Demo application for a start and see if it loads. I will put a link to my modified APP if anyone is interested, it will resize to anything (within reason).

    It would be great if you could make your software available.

    I intend to use it in centrafuse so will be experimenting shortly with a way to integrate it into that or RR if not.

    Ok Ill zip it up and get a link inserted into the first or second post at the thread start.

    Ill include the code so you can mod or junk it from there. A few points though The code for the Setup, Error and Select screen and the Global module is VERY OLD, just copied, pasted and modded from one of my old apps, it works so it hangs around. Give me about 30 minutes its lunch time for me here.

    FYI -- Post #14 on page 2 has a new video no sound - shows new layout and screen scaling, also shows the option warning to back out of rescanning when clicking on rescan - if anyone is interested.

    Links to original software, manual, board layout, circuit, USB driver in C, web site and my app are now on the first page

    I forgot to add. The device hibernates and sleeps fine in the vehicle but my FE closes the radio app on suspend and reopens it automatically on resume (if it was previously playing) in both sleep and hibernate due to problems with the old Module. The workshop PC had no problem resuming from sleep with everything running with the new module and SW.

    Thanks very much for your comments and work on this, I think i will pick up one of these boards since it looks like it's at least at a stage it's worthwhile playing with.

    With the centrafuse front end, it's all touch screen driven (at least in my car) just with simulated mouse clicks so no keyboard events. If the app is usable with just a mouse i'm sure I can get something going.

    FYI I Updated the SW for Drag Drop to Preset from the DAB List buttons as well as from the existing station heading - already uploaded.

    Yes it's all touch screen and I use it on my 8" WS in the car. Of course I can control it completely with hardware controls as well but that version is coded straight into my FE. See comment below about a Window name.If you need to try it and no one has modded the code for this then let me know and I can mod mine for you in short order. UPDATE - Already done and selectable in my latest download.

    For anyone interested: I tried my version of the DAB-FM as an imbedded app in my FE and the only thing it needs to work as far as resizing etc is a window name. That’s a 1 second change to the code but and few seconds extra to change the button resizing to allow for a window name heading - Update: Done.

    If someone codes the keyboard input for whatever standard key functions are used then it should work imbedded in anything. I’m sure someone who knows the other FE’s can enlighten me/us on that.
