    Just added connectivity to my carpc!...RR is a bit handicapped tho...

    Hi Guys,

    I finally configured my mobile phone (SE T610) to work fully with bluetooth phone control/audio handsfree through computer and internet through GPRS...

    I then tried centrafuse and was really happy with the featureset.... Basically the web browser builtin allows me to go into my fdavorites which include traffic reports for my city (Sao Paulo, Brasil), it also lets me get local weather forecasts, as well as controlling and answering my phone!

    The feature possibilities are really excellent, but unfortunately a lot of it is kinda buggy/sluggish... I would therefore like to suggest that someone get involved in this asap! ehheeh I am willing to get coding on the browser or phone interface, although it has been years since I last fiddled with VB... I just want to know if anyone has started any of this, if you'd be interested at all, and guino, how would I go about doing these additions?

    I really want the open source-ness of RR to start giving users advantages! so far it seems that only a few snippets have been submitted?

    All the best!
    Roy

    Right now I'm working on smaller things, and bug fixes.. there's a user working on phone control already (and he has the equippment to try it with -- and I don't).. What people typically do is create a shortcut in the launch folder to view traffic weather and such (using a browser or some simple app for this). I have already started to play with Phoco, and although it is very simple, I don't have means of testing it with a phone.. so I'm waiting to see what comes out from user initiative first, if they can get something that works, I can simply build/improve on it knowing that it already works.

    Can you put me in contact with that user?

    I can try to create a web-browser module if it interests you or anyone, but I'll wait for OSK to be done, otherwise I'd have to do that too an it'd be redundant!

    I am registered phoco user so I can help test/debug the phone implementation if that user doesnt mind...

    I actually thought web browser was completely USELESS in the car, but it actually is kind of convenient!
