    Well if you get done by SEMA Maybe we can use you in the cars in our booth. I work for a company called Icon-TV. All our cars have PC's. But we need time to test it before SEMA. Good Luck!!

    I saw pimp my ride the other day and I did not get the name of the company that in stalled the computer in the scion. Then again I did not look for it much. Recent I received a copy of car audio mag and they were on the cover and a five page article on their system (don’t know who's *** there kissing but I must be the right one. Then again the product may sell itself as it is doing to me)

    So I started searching the net and found them In many places. I wanted to see what was being said and get some more info. I was going to buy one after seeing a demo at a car audio store but then I saw this site with people making their own kits etc and software like mediaengine etc. Basically I am lost now. It seems like a difficult job to put it together and there system was $2550. Don’t know what to do. I see some people talking good about it here am some saying other things.

    They were on MTV and now on car audio cover which I get in the mail along with 160,000 copies that goes out to people and car audio stores around the country, from what the book claims anyway. Basically now that I see that the company is legitimate I just need to decide if I will buy it or do my own unit. Which I don’t know anything about pc’s.

    I call drivesoft and ask then directly about something’s I read on this site like their interface being kind of simple etc. They said “Drivesoft and well as other companies can’t fire all their ideas at the consumer all at once if you want to succeed. We have may option that we hold back until we see other companies doing the same thing then we release new feature and pull away from the rest until it needs to happen again. You will see interface option later. We have been around since 1998 and we hope to stay around. Also we currently have 18,500 software package sales since MTV that seem to be all working fine as well as our resent rush on the Drivesoft system totaling over 2700 units in the US, Canada and all the way to Europe” So dose this mean they will hold features back from me so they can get more money later…… well I guess I should not complain since this is what most companies do. Their just being honest I guess.

    Should I buy or build? The last time I priced my parts to do it right was about 1900 with every possible option. Dose that sound about right because if so I think I may spend the extra 600 and get the drivesoft unit ready to go with the software.

    Not sure if this is the correct area to post this. Sorry if it is not

    i want one now
    thanks
    Its nice to see that Drivesoft monitors our forum.....lol

    Rev 6 will have the new xm protocols for our interface cable as well as listing for xm, and DVD will work...because we are scraping blaze for now, you will just need a previously installed codec for dvd....and bug fixes......you will all see this move pretty quick, being that we have to have it working flawless by sema

    I hate to laugh at your pressure, but that works out well for me. In a week I leave for my trip. I'd love to have a more stable MMC to use.... hopefully my xmDirect cable will be here by then. Then I''ll go buy and XM direct
