    Well there is CarFrontEnd which is for mac. The project died a little while ago, but the program is apparently pretty stable.

    Here's the CarFrontEnd subforum:

    QCar? ;-) But I am one of the creators, so do not take my word too seriously.

    The pros and cons as we perceive them:
    + Extremely flexible thanks to plug-in architecture
    + Probably the most extensive function set (incl. navigation, mail reader etc. etc.)
    + Supports most hardware incl. special stuff like Phidgets, OBD etc.

    - It seems to be quite difficult to configure for Mac folks, not used to text config files
    - The GUI is efficient to use, but not as nicely looking as some other FEs
    - Not completely open source - this might be seen as a problem by some

    If you just want a front end for Mac-based in-car entertainment, QCar is probably too complicated and CFE or other front ends will do a better service.
