Had the photoshop bug bite
Started messing with the carwings PSD and after about an hour was left with this:
meh, I like the original style better. It was clean, simple, looked very much OEM. I like the new look as well, but not as much as the original. I don't see the need to cram as much as possible onto one screen. Makes it look too cluttered. I switch back and forth between Carwings and DFX3. I like the GPS screen a little better on DFX3 with the scripted buttons (such as save current location), but I like the cleanliness no BS look of Carwings. IMO, DFX3 is a great skin, but really too cluttered for my liking and WAY too much to look at if driving and trying to navigate the system. The fewer items on the main screen the better IMO. Then the buttons can be larger which makes for easier "at-a-glance" viewing and selection for both passenger or driver.
i like the new look way better than the original one, but i most say this, is there anyway that you can use another mute and settings icons?.

I sure can, in fact I was considering new art for the bottom buttons as well. Those icons are stock CS3 art. Trying to make a skin that better matches my interior and color scheme since I have not stopped using carwings in the stang since the release
gotta admit...i wasn't "feelin'" the new look at first, but upon a second glance, i really am starting to like the look of the new design over the old one.
I love the 3D separator for the buttons. It's different.
Love the name.

any more work on this? will there be a release with the extra features listed in the thread?
Currently I have 2 folders brewing, carwings 1.5 and caRR 2.0.
The 2.0 version of this skin is far off but the 1.5 has most of the coding done. There are a few broken links here and there but overall its near complete. I would like to add a full screen GPS mode also. I will take a look at everything when I get my desktop back up. XP partition is pretty beat up and corrupt, I'm formatting it tonight for a clean install.
So yes there will be a release as promised, however time is tight right now as I just started my own business and I need to budget it accordingly
n/p...fully understand tight timing. That's my life lately unfortunately
The full screen GPS mode would be good, I know the Garmin MobilePC software doesn't play too nice as it is now. Tried it with DFX3 as well and it just needs a bigger screen area than iGuidance did. I like iGuidances map displays better...but the Garmin software tracks (or seems to anyway) at 5Hz (same update rate as my GPS receiver).
Taking a trip to Houston this weekend so I'll see how the Garmin does on navigating compared to iGuidance.
