    okay just one quick thing, how much did you guys pay for IR-man setups? like the kit, where'd you get it? did you have to order it from NZ?
    I built myself the UIR interface. It is identical to the IR-Man and all you need is a PIC-12C509 programmer to make one. You can build a PIC programmer for $10 and the UIR for about $15. If you cant find the UIR link I'll track it down and post it for you. If you search for UIR here you should find the link. I have posted it a couple of times before.

    You had a VL from memory didnt you Hornet? My player is working except I havent Installed the DVD drive and I'm waiting on an TFT when finances allow. Which should be soon. I have a character LCD going for MP3s though. I havent got it in my car yet which is a VB by the way

    That also reminds me check out http://www.gpss.co.uk/ for GPS software. Apparently there are some maps out there of Australian cities available for download(there are some links on the site). The software is also free if you fill out the guys survey and you can make it talk.

    Another thing. It has taken me a long time to get to the point where my player is ready to go into a car(well over a year). Some of this time was getting finances together, some was lack of motivation but most was trying to track down the bits I need. It is so difficult to find the right sort of components that are suitable for an mp3 player here. What we need is somebody to start up a small company importing this stuff. The down side is I doubt it would be profitable with the number of people building players here

    hey Technics, for TFT's... what size are you looking at? cause autobarn have nice cased 5inch TFT's at the moment for $390.... might be easier than getting one from the US, espically with the trubbles over there at the moment......

    That all sounds rather voilent. Anyway I was looking at ordering a 7" widescreen TFT off a website somebody posted a while ago. I really dont want to use a 5" TFT and it's about the same price anyway. (well the 7" will be a little more with postage etc.). I'm still not 100% sure i'm even going to get a TFT becase I don't know that I will be able to enjoy it much. I just wonder does anyone actually watch movies in their car?
