    I am just working on some of the playlist editing tools then I'll release it. (Play whole CD,Enque CD and play, Enque CD and add more, etc.) Getting really close to a release. If I had to guess a date it would be mid Aug.

    The file browser looks like it could take a while to scroll through lots of albums.. maybe have a search or jump to letter button ?
    Also not sure about the album art behind the track list - could make things really hard to see.
    Other than that it looks pretty damn nice mate, keep up the good work!!

    sparkyssb - Yes, I currently have XM radio support and I do plan to add Sirrus very soon (as soon as I can scrape up 120.00 for the hardware)

    swift_gti - I've updated the first post with the pic of the OSK. Early-on someone said that they have over 600 folders on their CarPC, so that was a design goal for me, to make it easy to use with large collections. The buttons use a increasing speeds the longer they are pressed. You can also use the OSK to jump to Alpha search or the index number of the album. (No ID3 genre sort yet) If the Album art is bright then, ya it can wash out the text, thats why I added the highlight bar to kinda darken up behind the currently playing song.

    Everyone else - Thank you for your kind words, sorry this is taken so long. I've been working really hard on the file browser and media player code, and I think I got it just about worked out. I also made some changes to the GPS and full screen VIS/DVD player.(Pics Updated in first post)

    My todo list is getting pretty short, so lets hope you can test it for me soon. The phone control I've tested with a blackberry 9100, Cingular 8525, Erickson w810i and a Moto sliver. Good news is that I can dial and answer from all of them but the program still needs a lot of work, so I think that I'll release the main program at first and leave the phone control for an update.

    I'll update soon.

    Hmm, reminds me of a blend of Audi's MMI with BMW's iDrive -- very clean and sporting a functional layout to boot, I like it!
