    Front end program

    Ok, I am a newbie not only to car pc's but to pc construction as well.
    I have heard the term "front end program" used alot in this forum, could someone in layman's terms explain what this is??
    I tried searching but, was unable to find an explanation.
    Thank you

    Welcome to the forums!!

    A "front end" program is one such as MediaCar, MediaEngine, CarBox, FrodoPlayer etc, which sit "on top" of your Operating System (in most cases Windows) and give you a graphical interface to the computer for playing music, videos and in many cases also GPS.

    Most of these "front end" programs are skinnable, which means that people can create new "skins" for them, to customise/change the look/feel of the program.

    There is a LOT of information here in the forum, just remember the is your friend
