    Jirka you said that you were going to be implementing a XM program in the second quarter of this year. I would like to know what hardware that this will support in order to finish ordering my pieces. Just like the GPS is it going to be item specific?

    Now with that hat off, I would recommend some YouTube-like demos of your software in action if you can. Most of us have been watching your progress over the past few months seeing what you turned out :-)

    For GPS we support the NMEA standard and we have tested the software with several different receivers - serial, USB and Bluetooth, so I do not expect any problems there.

    As for the XM / Sirius - a friend of mine is doing some research right now in the US, but any suggestions are welcome. We need a compact unit, that can take +12V or lower and can be controlled over USB (eventually serial but since this would mean an additional adapter, we prefer USB) and preferably has optical output.

    The idea is to
    - have self-install kits with hardware (including cables, connectors for non-destructive installation etc.) and software
    - offer the installation services including heavy customizations thru our partners

    in both cases, there will be an option of using customer's own Mac mini. I should have more details shortly, but will talk to the moderators first.

    Very interested in this, sure most people running Macs are, really hope the software will be available stand alone, or have I missed something?

    Okay. If you want to make it as easy as possible to get hardware for XM i would suggest using the standard Xm Direct Tuner. This is compatibal with the MP3 Car USB Xm Controller sold on the store site. I think this will make everything easier to standardize.

    being able to buy the software and the hardware needed for each "wanted" option, would be nice.

    like, including the OBDII connector, a GPS antenna etc etc

    That's what I've got and it works just fine on the Mac using the store's interface.

    Excellent work! I'm planning to install a Mac in my car this next spring, and QCar will be part of it!

    Concerning the software being sold in a bundle with hardware, I find it a good idea: it will be helpful for newbies like me and/or two-left handed people and/or lazy guys and/or... ok, I stop it. . Many people will want to buy the frontend alone.
    So both solutions (with and without bundle) seem complementary to me.
