    We do not have all details, but there will be a basic version for Euro 99 (non-mapping GE/RB navigation only, without modules for integration with hardware) and the maximum configuration including all modules and map of one country and major roads of Europe should be for Euro 199. We are not sure whether there will be one or two versions between these two.

    As for the online services, much depends on our negotiations with Tele Atlas, but one idea is to pay one euro per day for full access to maps of whatever area you happen to be in.

    What are the chances that you'll release a version in the US?

    I read early on that you were working with a firewave for audio output, what kind of sound controls (if any) will be available within QCar? I saw that you cound do the basics, volume, mute, bass/treble type controls, but I'm looking for a bit more control. I understand that you would wait on these types of convenience items until after the software is out, but I am just curious if there is anything I could do to put together an audio wish list for future updates?

    I am now looking into audio outputs such as the firewave or some other 7.1 or more likely 5.1 output. I would love 31 band EQ per channel (except the LFE of course) and time alignment for starters. I could just use the hopefully soon to be released JBL MS-8 for these functions & more but I'd prefer to do it from within the mini.

    Also, on some mp3's I've set up custom eq settings, stand up comedy/talk radio needing a different curve than say trance or rock, will QCar be able to read these itunes eq settings and duplicate them?

    Again I realize the priority now is on other areas, I am in the process of designing the new sound system and I'm just brainstorming ideas.

    Ditto. Heck I wasn't even planning on running a Mac in my car but now *rubs hands together* that is definitely the plan

    --EDIT--
    You all have been great on my journey to getting a CarPC. I have learned tons on the short time that I have been here.

    There is no reason for not being able to use QCar in the US. TeleAtlas does provide map data, QCar does support both US and metric units...

    Sorry for not updating the progress info more often, I am now buried in finalizing the navigation module :-)

    Yes, the project is still very much active. Today I have spent 12 hours testing the navigation and Phidgets, tomorrow I am installing a demo car for one of our partners, Friday is reserved for testing and debugging of some online services.

    I will try to post updates more regularly.

    Hi Jirka,
    To be honest, I haven't read all 13 pages, so you might have answer this question before, but if you dont mind: Where can I download a demo of your software?
    And also, Im a graphic Designer with a lot of experience in interactivity, I read you hired a designer, but I would like to work on your front-end a couple hours if you dont mind... if you can send me some files and the demo I would love to give you some ideas.

    GPS and APRS Applications

    Jirka,

    There are two wonderful GPS programs, one is specific for OS X and the other is open source, multi platform.

    The first is MacGPSPro and is a solid mapping application.

    The second is Xastir. This is primarily used for APRS and again is a solid program. The mapping functions in Xastir are spectacular, utilizing many sources for maps. Most people use TIGER maps. Xastir is also run in Terminal, like QCar.

    I got into the idea of putting my Mac in my Land Rover to use Xastir with my Ham Radio and the APRS functions. Getting all the other stuff, is icing on the cake.

    Have you thought about integrating a mapping software that utilizes USGS maps and not just road maps?

    Cheers,

    Nick

    Jirka is probably less interested in USGS as he isn't from the U.S.

    Are you using native Mac software for APRS?
