    Ok, so I made an applescript to lauch iguidance, still have to figure out some sort of floating button to switch back and forth but I think I have an idea for that too if I can't figure out how to do it with a script which would be ideal. The only thing I'm not sure how to do would be to map the script to the nav button in NBB. Is it scriptable, I haven't actually checked that yet. Also how is the XM working out, Im excited to have a car friendly XM solution. Right now I'm using JXM w/Line in and its kind of a hassle. I think its an accident waiting to happen, if you've used JXM you'll know what I mean. I've been trying to work my way around road runner and the LSX void skin but its not been too easy trying to get things going with that. In my opinion its not as intuative as say Amp or NBB.

    BTW, I like the idea of using gestures to be able to scroll, don't know how hard it is to implement.

    NBB is not scriptable yet. if you want to give me the script i can compile it into the nav module for you. I can also make a floating back button for you

    XM is still where it was last week. still no GUI and I have only implemented power on and change channel commands. I plan to work on it a lot this weekend tho. the biggest reason i haven't been able to work on it much is that I am never able to have my radio with me when i have free development time. (or i leave it at work over the weekend!)

    I really want to get kinetic scrolling working a la the iphone, but it is proving insanely difficult. It will probably be a long while till it is possible without a scroll wheel or equivalent unless apple incorporates it into desktop os x or somebody publishes a cocoa example of it.

    Sounds good, I'll send you the script when I get a chance. One thing I was wondering though, and I don't know if you'll be able to tell me this but hopefully someone with iGuidance will. When opened does iGuidance fit itself to the screen size or no? I've only been able to use it on my MacBook Pro thus far as the mini has not come yet. If it does not I will have to tweak the script to resize the iGuidance window. Also, should I have the script size the window leaving a space for the button, or can you make it float on top and make it semitransparent, or perhaps make it completly transparent and then just have it it up in the corner or some other open space on the iguidance screen. Thant way it's not in the way and you can just touch the screen where you know the button is and get back to NBB. Thanks a lot!

    you may need to resize it just to make it perfect and maybe to leave room someplace for a button since im not too sure of how to do a globally floating one. besides even with a global floater the button has potential to get in your way (if it is over other controls cuz i can make it semi transparent) so leaving a space may be the best solution anyway. well see i guess

    a couple other thoughts...the new macbooks have the trackpad that u can do the gestures with...I dunno if u could somehow see how that is implemented and work from there. Also, I don't know if this is possible or not since iguidance would be running in fusion, but would there be anyway to lower the volume of the music playing or mute it for a few sec while iguidance is speaking the turn by turn directions.

    one other thing...couldnt the button just be on the screen while iguidance is active...that way it could just be invisible like I was sayin.

    yes the button could be invisible, but if it is placed in an area where there is another control you will not be able to use the other control. the other issue is that i am not sure how to do a global floating button but i'm sure it is possible.

    since iguidance is running in windows there are no obtainable notifications that it is speaking. i could allow you to toggle mute with another floating button

    getting iguidance to launch via the applescript was pretty easy. Sizing the window and centering it is proving to be more difficult.

    Request for the XM module: Channel Icons for all stations and also for a 'Presets' screen.

    I'd like the ability to have a screen that shows the current XM info like channel number, channel name, current song, but also show 6 or eight channel icons (using XM's own channel logos) that could be used like preset buttons on a traditional car stereo.

    Another screen that would allow me to browse channels by icon would be nice too.

    I'm sure alot of that will get implemented eventually, there will be a table with the channel info in the first release and some basic controls thats about it.

    keep in mind i can only get what data the radio supplies me so icons are going to have to be an afterthought, and will probably be up to the user to collect and install. I'd do it myself if I had an XM subscription or an interest in one. I'm developing the XM module solely because of community interest in it
