    DigitalFX pretty much constantly. Not perfect but certainly the most intuitive and feature rich. Sometimes I'll try FU but always end up back with DigitalFX with Burlwood.

    my own custom. I wanted a central mph reading, with time and compass as well. I tailored the menu options to the functions I have working, or will eventually have working. The green color was chosen to match my interior oem lighting scheme.


    EDIT: lol, I had to add the audio_player .. couldn't resist.

    My own skin, Chameleon...it uses GDI+ to change the skin buttons and declares glabal variables through includes.txt to change text label colors on the fly

    pretty handy when I'm moving the rig to the wife's car for a trip, and want to match her dash colors, logo, etc.



    I can easily change the button colors and logo, also the night skin has a blue chrom screen color rather than this beige chrome (which matches my interior but is less interesting



    Audio browser has a song information pop up (for 10 secs) that also has vol controls...I use optical out through an Alpine PXA-H701 controller so I do my volume and other control through that. (a big reason why I started my own skin was I didn't want to give up real estate to volume controls thyat I don't use)



    Audio browesr also has a pop up skip to letter along the bottom and access to my mp3 plater, CD drive, USB drive

    at the moment i'm using digitalfx2.0 - mainly because i liked the transparent look etc. but a lot of the current skins seem very much overkill - especuially for my needs - audio and video and maybe GPS (if i can get autoroute to work with rr. so i might just try my hand a skinning and see if i can't come up with something a little more lightweight.

    I use Dalailama's CrystalBlue Skin. The colors match my head unit, it looks great (IMHO), great functionality, and it just gets better with every patch and release he puts out.

    Well, I'm between skins. I use IDrive 2.2 because it includes MILAGE already skinned (Trust me, if you haven't used MILAGE, give it a try and you won't regret it) I believe that plugin should be included in all of the skins out there. I have to switch to Ultimate (from time to time) because of Freefone. Now, if the skinners work together or ask permission from each other to use certain features, we, the users shall have the coolest skin(s) ever!

    We do work together from time to time, and are always helping each other out if necessary.
