    How about a clock on the start/home page? Heck why not change home to clock or time? Do you need a home with all the good buttons? I think it is a good start!

    Guys thanks for your repsonses. Definitely working on the time for home. Basically that is there as a starting point that would have date and time and maybe a logo we just havent gotten there yet. Bugbyte is really helping me out so hopefully I will be able to keep updating it. Sidenote is that the Pycar port is supposedly coming along so we may have that too. Back to work I go.

    I will run the audio out of the mini to my HU SAT input with an adaptor for the 04 Maxima.(I'v already check with a company in Orlando that sales and ships the adaptor for $115. The adaptor will allow me to control the SAT input as if it was XM or Siris. Adaptor also comes with 2 inputs to control another audio sourse because my SAT input has 2 channels. This all allows me the use of my steering wheel volume.

    Hey guys some minor fixes and some improving thanks to Bugbyte. I also added that date and time to the "Home" tab. Next up I think is searching for songs and setting some iTunes prefs. Posted in the same place:

    Then just right click on iKarr v.01.zip and "save link as" then you should be good to go. My brother and I have been working on it and it is written with interface builder and applescript. Nothing too complicated but it seems to work and thats what we are going for. Right now only iTunes basic features are working. It is a "front end" so iTunes is still running but now you have bigger buttons and a more friendly interface. If anyone has thoughts or ideas or would like to add code let me know. I'm not really a programmer and neither my brother or I are that familiar with applescript so any help is welcome. Thanks.

    LOOK WHAT I FOUND GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    that's an old one- there might be a post on this board about it already- if not on this one I know there was a brief discussion about it on the ill-fated carputermac.com board ... i had a copy of an older version from a guy in portegul that was alright- the newer version is probably better by now, i would hope so anyway ....

    this is just a launcher which can be achieved by a few lines of code, and i think they were also asking a lot for what it does....dunno if a new version does anything differently..

    Seems bloated for what it does; Plus the 'graphics' of that 3/4d app suck apart from the skins which appear to have been taken from elsewhere...

    Frankly one could use the existing dock to achieve the same thing .. with a much neater interface to boot... just my 2c..less with inflation :-)

    iKarr appears to have much greater potential and it is 'native' !!

    best to search this forum

    YMMV
