    I've never had problems with using vectors or iterators inside of threads. I actually commonly use STL components for queues when I have to implement worker threads for a factory. Is the vector accessed by more than one thread? If so, try protecting it with a mutex. If that works then you can try to isolate the problem.

    Oh btw I got started on the new Silverwolf website. God willing it'll be available sometime this week...
    I had a mismatched library with developing on debian unstable bringing the app into Sarge. BIG Thanks to everyone.

    Custom Car Systems is Beta 1.0!

    I am pleased to announce that my linux-based in-car computer platform is beta 1.0.

    Please check out my new site: http://www.customcarsystems.com

    There are screenshots of the application in action. Please keep in mind that I am a developer and not an artist and that the entire application is skinnable using XML.

    Right now the plan is to focus on QA. Identify major bugs and usability issues and enhancements.

    Future Beta versions will have these features.
    - Automated CD ripping and add to library features.
    - Automated ID3 (and other) music file tagging and correction.
    - Internet access via wifi/wireless/wired/cell.
    - Integrated Turn-by-turn GPS software.
    - System configuration menu and GUI.
    - Music player and playlist enhancements.
    - Theme Support: XML skinning fully implemented, theme chooser/import.
    - OBDII GUI.
    - MAME.

    Let me know what you think.

    More info will be available as I create it

    Crap you beat me to it Life got in the way of me finishing my website...

    Anyhoo great job! Another Linux frontend is always a good thing. From the size of your buttons can I assume everything is optimized for a touchscreen?

    By the way who is "Modest Mouse"?
    Silverwolf 2 is dead.
    Silverwolf 3...?

    Thanks!

    This one is touchscreen centric. A mouse, joystick, gamepad, etc could also be used. I have just got a remote control with my audigy 2 so remote control support should come at some point.

    There will be an on-screen keyboard for library searching and other areas where input will be needed but this system is designed around a keyboardless system.

    Modest Mouse Rocks! check out their album "This Is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About" for some of their best stuff. They are "alternative rock" but I think "surf rock" would be a better classification.

    Will it be open-sourced? I'm mostly interested in the GPS and ODBII stuff when it is being implemented.

    I am still working out the plan but,

    The GPS is 3rd party software and is not open source.

    The OBDII module is the most likely candidate for GPL. If I decide to do the OBDII module GPL the plan would be to write a graphical frontend to the scantool.net software and run it as a standalone application. We shall see

    In case anyone is wondering: I have taken great care to only link in LGPL libraries and write my code from scratch. Whether or not I GPL the software is yet to be determined.

    I dont really like GPSDrive cause i think it is limited in terms of streetnames, routing and such, (if i am talking about the same thing I think I am)...

    anyways, I am trying to get the Destinator PN sdk to work under wine... I'll post when I get something that works.

    cheers

    GPSdrive definitely has limitations but there are some very neat things that it can do as well. http://gpsdrive.kraftvoll.at/features.shtml

    I am keeping my eyes on MapFactor releasing a US version.

    wine is an incredible project btw.

    yeah, i hope i can get the destinator stuff working on wine...

    my idea, as posted before in another thread, is to make a map layer with communication capability which will be emulated by wine. Basically only the map part of the linux frontend would be emulated. all GPS dialogs will be made by the frontend in linux, and the frontend will communicated with the map (emulated) tto send/recieve data...

    this should make the emulated part as small as possible, and make it pretty platform independent... still need to get wine going with it tho...


    About the other solutions you point out... they look good, but as usual no support for Brazil or the rest of the world... my idea in using destinator is cause it is the only one available pretty much worldwide...
