    Another question, how will iPod support be handled? I know that iPods such as the Classic and the Nano, you are able to access the files directly on them; they can mount as external drives. But that is not the case with the iPod Touch(which I own) and the iPhone. But I know they still work with stereo head units, such as the Pioneer I own.

    What I hope is, that I will be able to hook my iPod Touch up the the computer, and OpenMobile will see it, and list the songs, just as if they were on the computer themselves.

    Thanks

    It really wouldn't be as hard as you would think-google provides a great easy api...I've done a few other google apps so just remind we when we get to that phase and i'll put something together. So far all i've seen are unofficial api docs (http://posttopic.com/topic/google-vo...on-development).

    Eh...i'm gonna have to look into this-i'll grab someones iPhone this weekend and play around.

    For the regular iPod, openmobile will support reading straight from the iTunesDB stored on the device. It can either be imported and stored locally or read every time your iPod is connected. There will also be an iTunes plugin that you could use to list and/or play files off of any apple device. Personally i'm not a fan of Apple anything-so being able to do things without iTunes would be a ideal.

    I have a rather large music collection and I use iTunes mostly because of the iPod Touch. I just create playlists of what i want to listen to, and choose to have those synced to the device, mostly because there is no mp3 player out there with enough storage capacity. I keep all my music on my external 1TB drive anyway, so there is no way I would be able to have all that in the car at once. If you can get OpenMobile to play off of the iPod Touch, I would love it.

    I think Sygic Drive would be a good option. This one also has a .Net interface that we can implement directly.

    I use this one for Europe, I don't know how the map support for US if for sygic but I think it's all there.
    Failure is not an option...

    I think to keep the project completely open, the idea is to use Navit, but any plugin can be written for any non-open navigation software and easily embedded.

    i have been unable to find any free maps to use with navit that are US based that are complete. I live in MI, Grand Rapids, and I am sure that there are not a thousand people contributing to any open source maps in my area. In fact, i could be the only one doing so if I choose to do so.

    So long story short, if we use Navit, where do we get the US maps? I have a tight budget and really dont want to have to buy maps.

    There in lies the problem that is being discussed in the crowd-source forum. I think the overall goal of OM project is to be completely open, which leaves Navit as the only routing engine. So it makes sense to initially support it, even though the map data that would need to be used, may be incomplete/unreliable. With the way the OM framework is designed, any other gps solution can be implemented via plugin/embedding. Thats how its been done in the open source carPC world since its conception.

    Borte, I'd like to know more about the .net interface of Sygic that you spoke of earlier. Does Sygic have an SDK of any sort? I have seen videos of Sygic, and the map movement is very smooth. I have been using GMPC on my laptop for quite a while. It's a good program, and being Garmin, always has good directions and many POI. Is Sygic the same?

    BINGO

    UnusuallyGenius:
    check out http://www.openstreetmap.org/ I think you'll be surprised by how complete OSMs maps are

    Sygic is very much alike TomTom both in look, feel and behavior. Map movement can be set to the framerate that you want. I'm running it at 12fps and it's really smooth.

    For SDK information check out this link: http://www.sygic.com/index.php/en/do...mentation.html
