red just to let you know, that the Silabs radio and the ADS Instant fm radio are the same, Road Runner has this native now with a single dll,this may be usefull to you.
radio receiver so I could add it to the program, but they are back ordered. So I may release the new version without the FM radio added to it, then add FM later.
Update on the radio..
Whohoo!!! im soo ready to see the new version come out, good work RED!!
Im a pilot.
I have become a cross control stall.
I made some good progress today. I have the module almost completed. Ive added a few functions that were a little tricky to figure out, but theyre now solid. I decided to combine the FM radio module with the XM module. You select which radio to use through the settings, either the FM or XM Radio. Unfortunately there wasnt enough button real estate on the media module with all the new features, so this was the only best alternative. I figure if people use the XM radio, they wont have a need for the FM and vice versa. The FM module uses the same skin as well, so there wont be a need to create an additional skin set. The new module features 8 memory presets, a number keypad to manually enter a radio station. It also features some radio text and station/channel identification, independent volume control, mute, stereo detection, signal strength indicator, and regional location informational text. I will see how the performance will be with visualization, but I may not include it. What remains to complete is integration with the rest of the program where volume and previous and next track buttons in other modules will work with it. I may just set it up so that the next and previous and volume buttons only work in the GPS module so the user can switch between the 2 modules, but it makes sense to have it enabled on the main menu as well. I will see how much work it entails, if too much, the main menu may have to wait until the following release.
Thanks for the update Red. Looking forward to the release. Wish we could have a way to have both XM and FM, I will be using both personally. It might be easy enough to use the silabs radio software as a custom app.
I cant wait....... Any idea on a release date? Even a round-about date? Im getting anxious hehe
Everything is in the car and working.
I painted the cilpboard mount and it looks good.
Shutdown/Startup is working excellent!
