    MacFlurry, personally I've never used a playlist in my life and only navigate music through ID3 tags, however I do know people who navigate strictly based on playlists- so it's definitely a call enough to implement both features. Also, the dynamic playlists we are introducing will help people like you and i listen to our music in a whole new way. Just hold tight!

    Just want to say that I have been following this project, it sounds like a great package! Thanks for the hard work, waiting patiently for a release.

    Nice to hear guys!
    We're working hard to make the best Front-End.


    BT-Phone support will most probably be implemented, but I have yet to
    research this part. I expect different phones, each with different protocols.
    I'm not sure if it will be available with the first release of CarMa, but it's
    definitely on the list!

    CarMa is oriented to play complete albums or complete artists-lists,
    Even better, filling playlists the single-track-method isn't even on the list!


    I'm going to post a new project status update tonight,
    keep tracking!

    First, let me say I am excited to see other Delphi programmers out there still writing worthwhile apps. Honestly, I too considered writing a replacement for RR using Delphi Rad Studio 2007. My current expertise is in Database ADO-SQL Server apps and communications from my old Shareware days. Look up Qmodem for DOS for a reference, I wrote way back when with Turbo Pascal... Man, that was a long time ago, but I think I've owned every single version of TP/Delphi ever.

    And now my feature list:

    1. Playing music. I am glad to hear that you support Winamp because I like the way their playlists work. I am old-school and prefer to have an entire album from an artist and do not cherry-pick singles from any online service. I use random and if I hit one of my favorite albums, I turn off random and finish the album. When it I feel like random again, I hit a button and off it goes. And with this I want to embed the WinAmp plug-in Milkdrop. Love the eye candy! Milkdrop needs to be able to put into a skin.

    2. Support for embedded iGuidance. I want to be able to have skins that make it mostly full-screen when I really need to see detail, and in other skins where I can see more music info yet still know I am going somewhere. My current RR skin (Astro, by MGD) has these two features and I want this again.

    3. Support for other third-party embedded apps. My car is only used occasionally on the street and is being converted for drag racing. The current engine management system is called BigStuff3 and has a USB interface for tuning on-the-fly. Being able to code a skin to send keystrokes to BigComm3 makes it so I don't have to have my laptop in the car.

    4. Support for Sirius. I haven't listened to FM since I got my 07 Mustang with it.

    #1 and #2 are my "must-have" items. #3 would be nice for drag racing and #4 would be nice for those occasional nights out cruising.


    Looking forward to your progress and to testing and using this.

    John

    FWIW, I am running a front end that puts iGuidance in full-screen mode and then overlays a small "back" button in the top-left corner. I realize some people want other front-end info on screen with their nav, but the back button, to me, is how nav should be embedded.

    "Front end" might be too glorified a term for what I'm running, it's actually just little utility I wrote that lets me launch a few full-screen apps for navigation and engine monitoring / flashing. I still don't have music integration but I'm looking forward to Carma.

    But, that said, the #1 feature I'd like to see from Carma is a release. Stop adding features! Just get the quality high, start getting real hands-on feedback from users, and then add features over time with successive releases.

    Yes, winamp vis is a huge feature for me as well. I loved them back in my XBMC days and havent seen them again yet so we are bringing them back full force.

    We are implementing garmin apps first because thats what we have the easiest access too but we are definitely shooting for support on all the major GPS apps. Once we have one in, doing the rest will be a snap.

    3rd party apps and plugins will be a big feature as well down the road. we want you guys to make plugins for our apps for this exact reason- for specific things you may need to do, such as on the fly tuning.

    Serius and Satellite radios we really want to have, however over seas [where Jelte, the programmer is] doesn't have a huge market or access to these types of things so this are going to be a little issue and so they aren't top priority right now.

    Thanks a ton for your suggestions! This is what we want!

    Haha you're telling me man. We really bit off more than we could chew with establishing a beta date, and we apologize. This is the biggest project either one of us has worked on and we are doing it in our spare time after our regular jobs each day. Pile on freelancing and well you get the idea. So yeah it's a really big project and we all know, even in beta releases, you only get one first chance to impress, so we are working out everything we can first. Fear not though, bringing a beta to mp3car is our top priority right now - we just need to finish the stuff we KNOW we can get right at first so it can run well for everyone and we can maximize feedback.

    We appreciate everyone interest so far.
