    what are you actually using?

    so there's a lot of talk about different front ends and different ways of using your in-car mac, but what are people actually doing? i've been using front row, but it's really ****ing me off... i'm on the brink of dumping the whole thing and just getting a standard HU, and i fear i'll have to do it if i can't come up with a solution to please my girlfriend.

    i'm getting scores of "cannot communicate with itunes" errors, it will often freeze up and become unresponsive for up to 45 seconds, which is a real pain in the *** when the phone is ringing and you're trying to change the volume, it takes forever to scroll through any significant list (i have over 70 gigs of music)

    What processor and how much physical memory you have? The “freezing” wouldn’t surprise me at all with maximum of 1.42 GHz processor and 1GB of memory. It looks like Front Row itself needs quite a bit of memory to run.

    Is there any other music program besides ITunes that I can use (never used a Mac before)...

    I hate how ITunes works, and how it reorganizes my hard drive!
