    haha good thing a lot of users had been thinking of this also, i know centrafuse had a weather update which is good, but i would like to see this with RR, wifi is good, also i am thinking of post upload of info, like it downloads to a phone then uploads from phone to carpc if possible. and traffic info would be cool if it can be updated on MM, example if there was an accident on the freeway, when you upload info in your carputer before you leave home or office, like a good 1 or 2 mile warning telling you that accident on freeway or so, maybe dreaming about this? weather info is always good too.

    I've been fooling with meedio quite a bit this morning. I have set plugins for news and weather.. i've also found a module Mygames which organises my Roms. Lastly, i'm using an intergrated web browser for traffic info (MeedioBrowser). Its set to go to www.traffic.com and give me local traffic condtions. This will wok for now!

    We are hoping the UK version will be live data direct from the UK Traffic Centres, we are in talks with a number of companies that can provide an XML feed. StevieG and myself are hoping to create a useful feed direct into MM, FD and also other GPS Systems as well including Aimee.

    We have some good ideas, as soon as we are able to we will put more information forward including proof of concepts.

    cool i am sure a lot of users will appreciate the realization of this concept. i am imagining that when this is put into play, users can be alerted based on their gps position with voice alerts too while using gps frontends like MM and or with one touch of the screen or click of the remote.

    Man, realtime traffic info like the Acura RL would be an excellent upgrade for my carPC. It would make driving more pleasant here in Atlanta, Georgia.
