    Question Can it be achieved ??

    After many weeks researching and purchasing components, the PC side of mr CarPC project is almost built. Just really waiting for the screen from the US

    However, I want to ensure I have the optimum software. I am running a P4 1.5ghz, so I should have a good degree of overkill.

    This is what I want to achieve -

    The ability to play Music/Radio and get GPS voice instructions simultaneously, The ability to switch between the media player and GPS screen without losing any data from each. So basically GPS to be embedded. To be able to go into Divx / DVD player without windows screens.

    Basically I want it fully functional like a proper GPS/Stereo system would be. |And, I want to avoid windows screens if I can.

    I currently have a copy of media Engine, Media Car, Infomap Navigator 7, and destinator 3

    Is this achievable, and if so, what software do I need and where.

    Cheers,

    I'm currently running Frodoplayer as the carpc frontend with Destinator 2 using the "ExternalDest" written by confused.

    It starts destinator and then used the mini-mode of Frodo to allow you to use both at the same time.

    Previously I was using MediaCar with Destinator 2 and it embeds into that quite well. Just can't change the music/volume/etc without coming out of the GPS screen and back to the music screen.

    At the moment I'm sticking with Frodo cos it's being actively developed, whilst MediaCar has come to a halt.
