    but I hope you are good with linux. It's some very nice software once you get it working. I'm currently using a palm to control my system. I tested out this one when I was deciding which piece of software to use.
    Also, have a look at this site:
    http://palmare.idnes.cz/PalmOS/PalmO...alm020604.html
    It's not in english but it's got screenshots of a couple of pieces of palm software.

    I eventually decided on palmamp as I didn't want to have to set up giantdisc again if something went wrong etc, its very complicated (I've never really been into linux too much).

    Anyway, hope this helps. Good luck

    there is a MUCH easier way to do this than what everyone else has mentioned so far. Put an infared receiver on your carputer, and download/buy a copy of remote control software for your palm (there are plenty of programs like this, does a wonderful job of immulating a remote control). Then, just use Girder to to implement all the commands as necessary using the remote input. This will work great for pause/play, volume, etc. The only issue is for playing specific songs, that will not be possible beyond a certain set of pre-defined playlists.
