    this is what i got here in italy as well. the unit works fine, only prob here is my mobo recognizes it as a ps2 mouse and starts acting crazy. Workaround is to disable it in hardware properties as the ps2 port is only for power supply and com for the data. i like the idea of the two soundcards one reserved for the gps and other for mediaengine. i imagine its possible to "tell" each program to use a predetermined soundcard instead of the other....

    i think mediaengine with destinator 2 support is the best bet.....when it will be available

    in fact now im having a bit of problems when i listen to music with gps in the background...

    Easy, if you have a bluetooth mobile and dongle. Just set your soundcard as a wireless headset.

    Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.

    Great Guys,
    May I ask,
    Will ME GPS Edition have the full capabilities of Destinator??
    Is it skinnable??

    Cool

    Wow- Destinator looks great! I love the 3D view.
    It's not really that important really, but is there a way to customise the colour scheme in Destinator...?
    Now to integrate it with a Hauppauage TV/FM card....

    Any chance of a foto?

    It sounds very similar to the Deluo GPS

    as far as customizing destinator 2, normal users are limited to editing the destinator.inf file; changing the right values its possible to change the buttons size/font and that all. No way of changing color scheme except in the settings where you have two optins day mode or night mode. ( i personally prefer the night mode for the 3d looks very cool

    on the other side , SDK supplied by powerlock permits the developer to modify the look of the window. I was hoping too there was a way of changing the default color scheme because that oringish/brownish look is awful and with my 7" tft look even more watery...

    Does the two soundcards works???
    As ME2 is based on WMP9 can you configure the output to the second sound card?? If not can you send it to a bluetooth earpiece??
    Does anyone know of any conflict between the M Audio 7.1 card and the Mini Itx Mobo?

    Also would it be possible to put the font setting in the settings for the idiots like me!!!

    I would rather like to use one of the 7.1 cards with 24khz sound -
    Off topic so sorry but does WMP9 support 24khz output.. I can say I understand the technology but could I play DVD audio through ME2 and have that quality of sound reproduced?? Furthermore... I take it that the DVD is done by proprietary software such as Win DVD? If so can you use the "Digital EX" version and get the full 7.1 support? Sorry for take it a bit off topic but any help appreciated.
