    IM A GENIUS!

    I just figured out how using a latching relay, my car's factory remote keyless entry module, and the fusion brain, i can remote start my car and have the computer be booted up and ready before i ever get in the car!

    schematic to follow......

    First, visualization skin screenshot:



    Ok, here's the diagram... I know that I'd need a relay on o1 and o4, didnt feel like drawing them in, but you get the idea....



    Now, you might be thinking....."So every time you unlock your car, the pc will boot up?!? What if you just want to get something out of the car and wont be driving?"

    GOOD question. My car's door locks and RKE work on a 2-step system. First press of the button only unlocks the drivers door, and the 2nd press unlocks all 4 doors. MOST of the time, if I just need to get something out of the car, i just unlock 1 door. If i hook this up to the output from the all door unlock pulse, then it will wait until the 2nd press before booting the computer.

    For those that dont quite understand the need for all the diodes, you can turn a standard relay into a latching relay with the use of a diode, so that when the +12v that turns on the relay is gone, the diode flows power back through the relays coil, keeping it on. To disable this, you have to break the ground source for the coil, in this case, the lock +. The other diodes are just to prevent backflow through other systems.

    I don't comment on skins hardly ever, but this is a fantastic straight and to the point skin! This is an example of the types of skins i like! Keep up the great work my friend.
    ATTENTION FELLOW CAR PC ENTHUSIASTS, POWER ACOUSTIC = CAR PC KRYPTONITE!!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!

    To my adoring fans, No my Toyota's gas pedal didn't get stuck! Instead I saw you crossing the street and decided to floor it! Unfortunately, I MISSED!!!

    Started adding Radio support.

    the Radio button now calls a custom command "CHECKRADIO". This goes through 3 steps and loads the first available radio type, which is setup in the Settings screen. Works and loads in this order: FM>>XM>>Sirius. Let's say for instance, FM and Sirius are turned off in the settings. It first checks FM, know's it's not enabled, so it skips to XM, which is turned on, it loads the XM skin. Let's say all 3 are enabled. FM is the first checked, so it loads the FM skin. Each skin has buttons to switch to the other skins, all which error checking, to prevent a radio that's not enabled from being loaded. If all radios are disabled, this is what you get:



    Here's the settings screen now:

    another quick update...been developing the radio skin a bit more...it's all compacted onto 1 skin.

    i dont have my HQCT yet, and i dont have sirius or xm, so i wont be able to FULLY test and show it off...but the HQCT should be here soon...for now, here's an idea what it would look like...this is in FM mode...



    S changes the source between the 3 types. IF any of them are not enabled in the system settings, they are skipped to prevent possible lockup of the skin

    the up and down buttons below the S are for tuning, clicking will fine tune, holding will jump + or - 1mhz

    I couldn't have made it this far without the help of Sonic, Mitch and yourself
