    alright.. im starting to think the ATI remote wonder drivers and Map Monkey conflict.... i dont know... both wizawuza and I are having similar issues and if im not mistaken, he also uses the ATI remote wonder. hmmmmmmm (i dont know anymore!)

    Chita, sorry for taking so long to get back to you... well, I just drove around yesterday (friday) for a long *** time, and it froze when Mapmonkey wasn't even running! Only frodoplayer take 3 and a iguidance 2.0 was running!

    Then I had to force a reset, try again... this time ONLY frodoplayer take 3 running. And one thing I noticed is that it seems to freeze exactly when changing to a new song. That's whether I hit next, or one song ends, and then another is about to begin.

    So this leads me to believe it could be the hard drive (bad sectors or some crap), or still a slight possibility of that USB powermanagement thing.. I'll try the usb thing later. Or, unlikely, but slightly possible that frodoplayer is causing my troubles.

    And yes I do have the remote wonder, but it's not even plugged into any usb ports. Still, you may be right, this did start happening more since I installed the drivers for that thing.

    Chita, in case you're still curious, approx specs for my comp are athlon xp 2000+, shuttle mobo, 256 MB ram, seagate 3.5" 80 GB HD, xenarc TS from digitalww, opus 150W... onboard sound and video via shuttle mobo and nforce board.

    And of course, the remote wonder.. Next trip (sunday night or monday early morning) I'm going to try ONLY iguidance running... no frodoplayer. If that still craps out, off to strip any ati remote wonder drivers or the usb power management. How did the usb power management thing work out for you chita?

    it didnt seem to fix anything yet... i got a freeze again.... so what i decided to do then was see if it was the ATI remote drivers. So i went to task manager and closed the remote wonder app, and low and behold my gps went for a good 2-3 hours straight with no freeze. Frodoplayer NEVER gave me a freeze, so i HIGHLY doubt its a hardawre issue. I drive with frodoplayer on ALL the time, and not one issue. I'm gonna keep using Map Monkey without the remote drivers running and we will see what happens.... keep me updated on your results too! thanks

    This time I tried uninstalling the driver for the ati, and I exited girder... I may have still have "ATIWonder.exe" or whatever it's called running in the background, I don't know... but it froze again. Had mapmonkey and frodo open again. damnit.

    When I get a chance, I'll try to make sure that no x10/ati apps are running in the background, and try again.

    Unfortunately Chita, our problems may not be related..

    it seems my comp dies if i have nothing running but iguidance (yeah, iguidance, not mapmonkey). So obviously my problem isn't due to mapmonkey.

    Oh well... I do think you may have been onto something with that ATI driver, maybe not.. I'm going to put this carputer back into the house and power it with a normal home AC power supply and see what happens if I just leave it running for a couple of hours, no non-system software running. If it still crashes, time for a format and start over.. It'll give me a chance to really try out other frontends (RR has been getting my interest lately) and a chance to decrease my boot time further (this hibernation thing isn't my favorite.. fast, but stupid windows just can't last long enough in my opinion).

    Hopefully you're able to fix your problem as well.. Good luck buddy.

    btw... im pretty sure its cpu temp related now... my cpu temp gets into the 70's Celsius when Map Monkey is running... that would be a bad thing! i dunno what im gonna do..

    i COMPLETELY take that back, its not CPU related at all, i brought my carpc in my house to test, and the temp was at 20C and it froze.... again, ONLY when map monkey running.... so its gotta be something software related.... grrrrrrrr
