    Hardware works perfectly with InfillStation software, at least with my 2007 Sorento and with most cars having resistive-ladder style steering wheel controls. But the mp3car.com team seems to think that if they cannot support all cars, they'd better support none...

    thank you so much for the input guys.
    so is there a listing of which cars have been confirmed that it WILL work?

    FYI i am ordering a G4, but need to know if i should order the PAC steering wheel control module, which is pretty pricey... don't want to order it if it won't work. anyone here installed one on an Audi?

    thanks again!

    first line of the first post: radio isn't working at all.

    is there a fix to this?

    any idea where this shortcut is?

Apparently you add "testmode" to the end of a shortcut - but where is this shortcut?

    also is there a software program that shows a keyboard? The only keyboard i have at home is a wireless that requires a powered USB port so i won't be able to use it with the Infill - is there just a touchscreen keyboard program you can get and install on the G4?

    Thanks so much for your help everybody.

    Windows comes with a Keyboard program already - Programs -> Accessories -> Accessibility

    Go the shortcut that activates Streedeck. Check out the properties. There will a parameters input field where you would add command line parameters. Add "-testmode" to it. Save. When SD launches, it will activate testmode. You'll know because it will flag you to make sure that you know it's in testmode and are not supposed to operate it while driving in that mode. You will have to acknowledge the warning to continue.

    I've noticed some features don't work with testmode--most notably the Mute button on the G4. I've also had some unexpected behaviors in testmode that I have not had in regular mode. Just watch for it.

    Wow....don't you think testing was done?!

    When you have people clamoring over each other for a unit like this you're really left with little choice but to meet the consumers wants.
