    iPod navigation

    Hi!

    Now that I have all the hardware to integrate a PC into my factory nav systema I am no trying to configure roadrunner for the task. Right now I am still at the basic level and one of the requirements is to get my ipod integrated.

    I have gotten so far as to get Winamp to recognize the iPod, I can browse down in the ipods hierarchy and, for example, select -ipod artists-, then some artist, some album and then start playing songs from that album.

    My problem is this: I am stuck within that album. How do I navigate up in the tree again? In the regular media library there usually is a ".." entry that you can select but not with the iPod.

    I am probably missing something elementary here and will feel quite stupid when given the answer. Anyways: Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    /Erik

    Yes, press-and-hold the same button that browses "into" the selected folder when pressed. This brings you back to your music home folder.

    Ok... By button, do you mean a key or a button area in the GUI? I haven't had much luck poking and holding anything to get back. The methods for selecting that I have tried are.

    I did manage to click on something which caused the media browser to show the actual root file system folder of the ipod containing notes, calendar, ipod control and so forth but I cannot get into music browsing from there.

    The pod works perfectly with winamp but I am a bit in the dark about how the RR-Winamp integration works. I also have Winamp 5.54. Should I downgrade?

    Thanks,

    /Erik

    If you're seeing the options to browse the ipod in RR you should be ok.

    Main question is: WHAT SKIN ARE YOU USING ? in the Brush Metal Skin is the button with a -> on it, in the Carwings skin is the button that says "ENTER" on it.

    BEWARE: YOUR TOUCHSCREEN settings may be simulating the RIGHT CLICK when holding the button, and preventing you from pressing-and-holding anything on the screen -- including buttons with press-and-hold functions in RR.
