    Just tried 0.4 out for myself after using 0.3 (which I found promising, but not for me at that stage in development), and I love it. So much so in fact that im relegating "Simplistique" to my 2nd skin choice.

    I am having some issues with speed though - Until I get a car-pc im experimenting with my home PC, which is considerably faster (2ghz AMD, 1gig Ram, 128Mb ATI 9200) than the car spec pc im looking at. The menu's are occassionally choppy, but my main issue is with (Music) video performance. The video is smooth for a second or two, and then lags for a few seconds before catching up, and then repeating. I had no issues with the Simplistique skin - can anybody suggest a solution - or is this nothing to do with PC spec and more to do with the program/skin?

    I will be looking to play a lot of videos while in the car and so I can't be doing choppiness!

    @ CdRsKuLL

    Kudos to you - really impressive work...please continue to develop this fantastic skin!

    Issues

    Hi I am newbie and just got my Samsung Q1 (Pentium 1ghz. 1gb ram, 60gb hd) UMPC which I will use in my Fj. I installed RR OK. and the ultimate skin as well. Almost everything works as it should howere i have noticed 3 things:

    1. when i go to change the color it does not work. I can see the color grid but i cannot pick anything. it does not recognize my touch, i tried using my finger and stylus as well.

    2. I cannot make it fit the screen at 800X480 resolution. if i do that i am missing the bottom buttons like volume etc.

    3. The volume either goes up by 5 points which is ok or if i hit the - sign it just goes to minimum but the number says that it is going down by 5 points.

    Can you please help. As i love this skin.

    Thanks.

    This is just amazing ****.

    I can't think of any reason to actualy go buy one of those expensive softwares. This one is tailored to the real needs and questions of the users, not a small group of trial users.

    I'll donate some eurodollars tonight for this, and i hope you guys keep perfecting this one.

    In fact this skin is pretty damn smooth for me, considdering it's running on an old laptop. I'm gonna save up for a mini-itx now, or possibly just put an old 2400+ mobile motherboard in my trunk somewhere.

    I do like FU very much. Infact, I've been using CdrSkull's skins since MC1.0! The work he has done for the community is simply amazing.

    Recently I did try CF, mainly because of the newer Destinator 6 and the newer maps, and I liked it a lot.

    For me, and for many others, the main thing for the carputer is navigation. I now FreeDrive, and it's great, but the old maps are simply not worth it. I live in Denmark, and alot of things have changed, since the D3 maps....

    If I should turn back to RR and FU, I would need better option for navigation. So my simple question is: Are there any upcoming solution for this?

    Thanks for all the great work.

    /Michael

    update your flash in IE (not mozilla), you may have to turn off the popupblocker for a second or allay adobe's site to allow popups.

    Hi there!
    I live in sweden and is having the same kid of problems as u are... since there doesn't seem to be any hope to getting D6 maps I'm still using IG 2.1.2... there are some roads that it's hving problems with but not as many as the D3 maps...

    navigon PC Navigator is looking pretty good 2, version 6 didn't support window mode but they should release v7 any time now that will be pretty easy to embed in RR...

    okay figured it out as a RR config issue. Selecting "Map master volume to control line = wave" fixed it.

    Stick with CF if you wanna know where your going!
    Just about had it with carpc's and their ****ty FM and GPS options.
    I could of just brought a TomTom and a decent head unit but no i had to be clever and go for the carpc,i'm starting to come around to the idea of walkin away from it all,what's the point if the 1200 bag of **** can't show you where to go and play the radio. Frontends are pointless.

    Thanks alot that fixed the color problem. I really appreciate it. Can you also tell me how to make it fit for 800X480 screen. I tried selecting it in the RR options as well but it still runs off the screen.

    Thanks.
