    mp3Car not touchscreen friendly

    I have noticed that the navigation structure for our site is not very touchscreen friendly. I often use my car to visit and look for info and the navigation inside a thread is way too small and I have an 8 inch screen so you guys with the 7s must really have a hard time. Can we do something about this.

    Uhhhh.....
    The whole point of teh smaller touchscreens is to run a front-end that makes navigation of some computer functions usable whkle driving. Putting an address into a GPS program or selecting songs from the MP3 collection and so on.
    Not for reading web pages while driving!

    Suggestions: get a mouse as a backup for surfing while parked.

    It's pretty ballsy of a n00b to request a rework of an entire website so they can surf that site with their particular hardware.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Actually he's got a point, maybe someone skin up a theme for vBulletin that can allow the option of having a TS friendly forum.

    Just because my profile says noob does not mean I do not know what I am doing or what I am talking about. Where did it say in my post that I surf while driving? When you assume things you know what they say that does. I posted this for discussion not to get flamed by some of you guys that think noobs are a pain. I just know how to search and can figure out things for myself. BE KIND!!!!

    I do use a mouse but it was while I was surfing in my car this morning before work that I realized how ironic it was that a site about car computers and the prefered input method for those computers are not very compatible.

    Thank you enforcer for seeing with an open mind. As a matter of fact I am posting this from my car now while on my lunch break.

    Again this is a forum for discussion not attacking.

    I think he's got a point. And I like enforcer's idea. So who's up for the challange for making a new skin?
    I've seen on other forums that you can choose from a couple of different skins so if you at home u can use the regular skin and in the car you could change to the touchscreen friendly skin.

    I wonder, is there a way to make it easier for my to browse the web on my 3.5" PDA screen? Please change the res of the whole site to 320X240 so I can enjoy surfing during class.

    Peace,

    Depend on how vBuilletin is coded. It can be as easy as load up a new stylesheet for small carPC version or pda/phone verson.

    It's not really the layout thats the problem its more the size of the links that is the problem altho a diff stylesheet with bigger links and maybe avatars removed would help
